    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

    Evan Longoria

    The Rays were hoping that Evan Longoria would be ready to return at some point this week, but his rehab is now on hold following a setback with his partially torn left hamstring.

  4. AL All-Star balloting update: Jose Bautista joins the leaders

    Jun 18, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

    Evan Longoria

    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…

  11. Jeff Keppinger was minding his business in the dugout …

    May 22, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    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…

  12. The error battle is heating up

    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…

  13. 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…

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

    May 1, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    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…

  15. 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.

  17. 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…

    May 1, 2012, 5:56 AM EDT

    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…

  19. 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…

    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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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.…

  25. 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…
