Rays Vs. Royals Lineups: Evan Longoria Returns To Third Base

Good news for the Tampa Bay Rays and Rays fans: Evan Longoria is returning to the starting lineup on Tuesday night, and will start at third base for the Rays.

Since being activated off the disabled list on Aug. 7, Longoria has served as the Rays designated hitter, making it easier on his still-rehabbing hamstring. Longoria, though, is at least ready to play the field for Tampa Bay on Tuesday night.

The starting lineups for both the Rays and Royals are as follows:

Kansas City Royals

CF Lorenzo Cain
SS Alcides Escobar
LF Alex Gordon
DH Billy Butler
C Salvador Perez
3B Mike Moustakas
RF Jeff Francoeur
1B Eric Hosmer
2B Johnny Giavotella

SP Luke Hochevar

Tampa Bay Rays

LF Desmond Jennings
CF B.J. Upton
RF Matt Joyce
3B Evan Longoria
SS Ben Zobrist
1B Carlos Pena
DH Luke Scott
2B Ryan Roberts
C Jose Molina

SP David Price
