Evan Longoria is day-to-day with a bruised right hand

Evan Longoria gave the Rays a scare this morning. Or, more accurately, Matt Bush gave them the scare by plunking Longoria in the hand with a fastball.

Longoria immediately left the game and later went for X-rays, but they came back negative and he’s been diagnosed with a bruised hand. He’s officially listed as day-to-day.

“We will see how it feels tomorrow,” Longoria told Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune. “At this point, we just need to get the swelling out of there.”

Sending Longoria to the disabled list with a major hand injury is just about the last thing Bush needed at this point in his saga of a career, but the former No. 1 overall pick shortstop-turned-pitcher can breathe easier now and focus on possibly cracking the Rays’ bullpen as a middle reliever.
