    Evan Longoria has been gradually increasing his workouts this week and his partially torn left hamstring has responded well enough that a minor-league rehab assignment is right around the corner.

    No. 21 – Atlanta Braves – High school right-hander Lucas Sims The Braves taking a local product? Get outta here. Sims is highly-regarded for his velocity, topping out at 97 mph on his heater, but his breaking ball is considered one of the best of from this year’s high school crop of talent. No. 22…

    Jeff Keppinger

    Jeff Keppinger had done a nice job stepping into a bigger role in the Rays’ infield following Evan Longoria‘s hamstring injury, hitting .295 with a .728 OPS in 29 games, but now he’s joined Longoria on the disabled list. Keppinger has a broken right big toe, which happened when he was sitting in the dugout…

    May 5, 2012, 4:39 PM EDT

    Dee Gordon

    When Dodgers shortstop Dee Gordon committed his seventh error on the very first play of the bottom of the first inning Saturday, Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro knew he’d have to step up his game. Sure enough, he committed his major league-high eighth in the fifth inning. Here’s the up-to-the-minute leaderboard for errors: Starlin Castro (SS…

  8. Fun facts from the Braves’ 15-13 win over the Phillies

    May 3, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    To put it mildly, the Braves and Phillies played a wild one on Wednesday, with Atlanta winning 15-13 on Chipper Jones‘ walkoff homer in the 11th. It was the highest-scoring extra-inning game since 2006. Here are a few things one doesn’t see everyday: – Roy Halladay gave up eight runs, the most he had allowed…

  9. Evan Longoria’s injury a crushing blow to Rays

    Rays' Longoria holds his left knee and grimaces after he was tagged out byMariners shortstop Ryan trying to steal second base, during the third inning of their MLB American League baseball game in St. Petersburg

    Evan Longoria might be the American League’s most indispensable player. We’re certainly about to find out now that he’s due to miss 6-8 weeks with a hamstring tear. Longoria, the owner of a .329/.433/.561 line and 19 RBI in 23 games to start the season, was injured on a steal attempt during Monday’s game against the…

  10. Rays prospect Tim Beckham suspended for 50 games

    May 1, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Matt Moore, Tim Beckham, Gary Brown

    At one point Rays minor league infielder Tim Beckham was a top prospect. He was the number one overall draft pick in 2008. He played in the Futures Game last year and everything. He’s still a prospect — Keith Law ranked him as the eighth best in the Rays system this year and he has…

Out 6-8 weeks. — Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) May 1, 2012   11:33 AM: When Evan Longoria went down last night it was thought to be his knee.

  12. Evan Longoria to have an MRI today

    May 1, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Brendan Ryan, Evan Longoria

    Evan Longoria’s knee injury is scary for the Rays, but Joe Maddon is calling it a day-to-day thing.  Nevertheless, the Rays are taking no chances with it, so he’ll have an MRI in Tampa today. Longoria has started the year strong, hitting .325/.432/.563 with four homers and 19 RBI.  If he’s lost for any significant…

    Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish gestures to fans during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1: I think it’s safe to say that, after a couple of rocky starts to begin the year, Yu Darvish is starting to get comfortable. He struck out nine Blue Jays while giving up a single run in seven innings. The homer was by the incredibly hot Edwin Encarnacion, who has…

  14. Evan Longoria exits with left knee soreness

    Apr 30, 2012, 8:46 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    It might be time for this All-Star to stop fancying himself a basestealer. Evan Longoria left Monday’s game in the third inning with a sore left knee following an awkward slide into second base on a steal attempt. He was caught stealing on the play, leaving him just 2-for-5 in his steal attempts this season. A…

  15. Francisco Liriano could be bullpen bound after latest loss

    Apr 22, 2012, 7:14 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    While the Twins weren’t ready to reveal their exact plans, they said after Sunday’s loss to the Rays that they’d “take a step back” with Francisco Liriano after he gave up five runs and fell to 0-3 on the season. Liriano, who had an outstanding spring after tuning up in winter ball, is 0-3 with…

  16. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 20, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Yankees 7, Twins 6: Curtis Granderson hit three bombs and went 5 for 5. If you just followed this game on Twitter, though, you’d think the storyline of the game was Phil Hughes stinking. The Yankees fans I follow are a surprisingly neurotic bunch despite following the most dominant team in American sports history. But…

  17. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 18, 2012, 6:08 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Boston Red Sox

    Rangers 18, Red Sox 3: The Rangers were definitely physically and emotionally into this game. In fact, they did a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line around the basepaths. Josh Hamilton drove in five, Mike Napoli drove in four. Rockies 5, Padres 3:  Jamie Moyer wins and thus becomes the oldest pitcher to ever win a game.…

    Josh Beckett struck out just one batter Friday, but he went eight innings and limited the Rays to one run as part of a 12-2 Red Sox victory in the home opener at Fenway Parl. Beckett, at 94 pitches, appeared set to go for the complete game before the Red Sox scored eight times off Joel…

  20. Mariano Rivera blows save as Carlos Pena plays hero in first game back with Rays

    Apr 6, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Carlos Pena Reuters

    Craig mentioned earlier how Joe Girardi’s over-managing in the first inning resulted in Carlos Pena hitting a grand slam against CC Sabathia. Well, Pena wasn’t doing playing hero in his first game back in Tampa Bay. The Yankees actually rallied back from the early deficit, handing the ball to all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera with…

  21. Jeff Keppinger is batting cleanup for the Rays

    Apr 5, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    There’s a whole lot of people picking the Rays over the Red Sox in the AL East. I wonder how many of them have taken a gander at Tampa Bay’s Opening Day lineup against the Yankees’ CC Sabathia: CF Desmond Jennings RF Ben Zobrist 3B Evan Longoria DH Jeff Keppinger SS Sean Rodriguez 2B Elliot…

    Mar 18, 2012, 8:10 PM EDT

    Tim Beckham, Joe Benson

    It’s not every day a team sends down two former No. 1 draft picks. Reliever Matt Bush, the first overall selection in the 2004 draft, and shortstop Tim Beckham, the first pick in 2008, were both demoted as part of the Rays’ roster cuts on Sunday. Both moves were expected. The more surprising demotion was…
