Greg Luca of provides the following update:

Evan Longoria took what manager Joe Maddon called a positive step forward during a pregame workout on Tuesday in Baltimore, giving hope that the third baseman could begin a rehab assignment during the team’s current nine-game road trip.

“He was pleased, and I was pleased watching him. Nice progress,” Maddon said. “He may be a little bit closer than you think to being out and doing something and coming back to us.”

Longoria has been on the disabled list since early May with a partially torn left hamstring. He was only supposed to miss 4-6 weeks, but he felt renewed discomfort in mid-June and has been delayed ever since.

The 26-year-old third baseman was batting .329/.433/.561 in 23 games before suffering the initial injury.

Tampa Bay entered play Tuesday with a 49-47 record, ranking third in the American League East standings.

    You mean his PED suspension is almost up. Want to know how to cripple an already ailing franchise? Have their fan favorite test positive for PEDs. Want to know how to cripple a league? Have 2 fan favorites test positive. So they overturn Brauns, and then they roll up Longoria’s into an already existing absense.

    Longoria was supposed to be out 1 month. Nobody suffers a “setback” that triples the amount of time they are supposed to be out.

      Thats a new take on it. You are wrong, and have zero evidence to back that statement up.

    Are you stupid or something? Longo hasnt failed anything. He may be injury prone but not a doper. Just log off and go outside or something.

      I use capitalization, punctuation, and never use the word “retard” though.

        This guy’s poor grammar aside, I believe he was trying to reply to “Halladayslabia”–who is clearly attempting to fill the offensiveness void left by Halladaysbicepts, except that ‘cepts generally unintentionally offended people, whereas the wannabe whose title is even an insult to Roy Halladay is just another idiotic troll being a buffoon.
