Longoria (illness) is back in the lineup Friday against the Rangers, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Longoria went 2-for-3 with two homers, two walks and three runs scored Wednesday against Boston.

Generally a feared power hitter, Longo had homered just once in his first 27 games, which had to have fantasy owners feeling leery after he slumped to just 22 homers last season. He's not out of the woods yet, but Longoria's outstanding 18:20 BB:K points to a significantly improved approach -- and a .400 OBP.

Longoria (hip) is batting fourth and serving as the designated hitter for Friday's game against the Yankees, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune reports.

Longoria left Thursday's game against the Blue Jays after a pitch hit his hip, but the diagnosis came back as nothing more than a bruise. While the Rays will take a cautious approach by keeping their star third baseman out of the field, Longoria should return to the hot corner within the next few days, assuming he doesn't aggravate his hip.
