Longoria reports no issues after first rehab game
ANAHEIM -- Evan Longoria (partially torn left hamstring) began his rehab assignment Thursday night for Triple-A Durham at Gwinett (Braves) and went 0-for-3 with a walk as the DH in the Bulls' 8-1 loss.

Rays manager Joe Maddon reported that Longoria felt fine on Friday morning.

"We're listening to Longo," Maddon said. "Primarily, 'Can you play tonight? How sore are you? Do you feel like you need a day or not?' That's the primary conversation between Longo and us."

When asked if Monday in Oakland would be too ambitious for Longoria to return to the team, Maddon said, "It's not out of the question."

"Would I bet on it? No," Maddon said. "But again it's based on how he feels. So, is it possible? Yes. Is it likely? Probably not.

"More than likely, I'd say once we got back [to St. Petersburg on Aug. 3 to start a series with the Orioles], that's a better bet if in fact it's going to happen that quickly."
