Longoria (illness) was feeling better and returned to workouts Wednesday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran third baseman had been dealing with a high fever recently, forcing him to miss the past two days of camp. Although he didn't miss much, he missed some conditioning and him and manager Kevin Cash will have to figure out when he's physically ready to make his Grapefruit League debut.

Longoria (illness) missed a second straight day of workouts Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although he made an appearance in the clubhouse, Longoria was subsequently sent home due to the high fever he still was saddled with. He remains firmly day-to-day, and his availability for Friday's Grapefuit League opener would get murkier with each additional day he's sidelined.

Longoria, who hit a career-high 36 homers in 2016, did a lot less hitting this offseason than in years past, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead, the veteran third baseman opted for a heavy dose of pilates alongside his wife, and feels the reduced workload this offseason was natural byproduct of him shortening his swing last season. Considering the standout campaign he enjoyed, that adjustment paid considerable dividends. Longoria remarked that his swing "has probably felt as good as it's ever felt coming into spring" and is excited about the upcoming season, despite the fact he'll no longer have close friend and former teammate Logan Forsythe in the clubhouse. "I think we were all a little bit upset by the loss of Logan, I was about as vocal as I've ever been on any given topic or move that we've made, but that being said some of the additions we did make are really good.''
