Evan Longoria Injury Update: All-Star Could Rejoin Rays Tuesday

The Tampa Bay Rays look like they're going to get a major boost to their lineup early next week. Evan Longoria could be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, when the Rays return home to open up a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Longoria has been on the disabled list since May 1 with a partially torn hamstring. Prior to being injured, Longoria was enjoying an excellent year, hitting .329/.433/.561, with four home runs and 19 runs batted in.

Longoria will make his third straight start in Durham on Saturday night, and will take Sunday off. Per Roger Mooney, Longoria will be reevaluated on Monday, and if all goes well, he could be activated on Tuesday.

The Rays desperately need a healthy Longoria the rest of the season, as the club battles for a playoff spot. Through Friday's games, the Rays rank 29th in team bating average (.231) and 22nd in team on base percentage (.313).

Orioles Vs. Rays: Tampa Looks To Push Their Winning Streak To Four

After the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night at Tropicana Field, the Rays brought their winning streak to three-consecutive games. Tampa will look to bring that number to four in the second of their three-game weekend series with Baltimore.

Jeremy Hellickson will start on the mound for the Rays, his first since battling dehydration in his last appearance against the Los Angeles Angels on July 29th.

In that game, Hellickson fought through nausea and even threw up in the dugout and had to get an IV after the game even though he pitched six scoreless innings and struck out five batters in the Rays 2-0 win.

Tampa Bay pitchers have struck out 10 or more batters in 10 of the team's last 14 games.

Orioles Vs. Rays Recap: Tampa Takes Series Opener On B.J. Upton's 100th Career Homer

The Tampa Bay Rays opened their weekend series against the Orioles on Friday night with a big 2-0 shutout win. The Rays took a series from the O's last week in Baltimore and their looking to duplicate the feat again this weekend. Matt Moore got things off on the right foot Friday to put the Tampa one game ahead in the standings. Moore went 5.1 innings, giving up six hits and issuing three walks but he danced around trouble to hand the ball off to his bullpen.

The pen came through for the young starter, as four relievers combined to keep the shutout in tact. Kyle Farnsworth and Joel Peralta each pitched an inning and were credited with holds. Peralta allowed two hits but struck out the side to keep Baltimore off the board. Fernando Rodney then came on to convert his 32nd save without incident.

On offense, the Rays struck twice with two solo homers that would be all Moore and the bullpen would need. B.J. Upton blasted career homer No. 100 in the bottom of the fourth. It was a mammoth 425-foot blast and incredibly enough, it came on the same night that his brother Justin smashed his 100th career shot. He also became just the 8th player to get 100 career homers and 200 career stolen bases before the age of 28.

Two innings later, Desmond Jennings caught a Tommy Hunter offering and drove it over the left field wall to make it 2-0. Hunter was solid for the Orioles but those two mistakes proved to be the difference.

Orioles Vs. Rays Preview: Three-Game Series Will Greatly Impact Postseason Hopes

With back to back victories, the Tampa Bay Rays are in a tie with the Baltimore Orioles for the second spot in the AL East and can take over that spot with a victory in game one of the three-game series between the two teams starting Friday.

The Rays have won five of the last seven matchups between the two teams and couldn't pick a better time to try and keep the success against the Orioles going. Ahead of the Rays and Orioles for the second wild card spot are the Angels by 1.5 games and any win streak or losing streak any team puts together at this point in the season will greatly influence their playoff hopes.

For the Rays on Friday, Matt Moore will take the mound after winning his last start and two of his last three. His only loss of the last three starts was an eight inning performance in which he allowed just two runs, but didn't get much run support in a loss to the Mariners. But he bounced back with a win in the next start, shutting the Angels out in to the seventh inning.

Pitching for the Orioles will be Tommy Hunter, who hasn't earned a win since July 18 and will make the start despite making an appearance as a reliever on Wednesday against the Yankees.

The first pitch at Tropicana Field is scheduled to be thrown at 7:10 p.m. and will be televised on Sun Sports and MASN.
