Longoria is out of the lineup against the Nationals on Wednesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria will take a seat following seven straight starts as the Giants wrap up a series against Washington with a matinee prior to Thursday's day off. Pablo Sandoval will get the start at third base in his stead, while batting fifth in the order.

Longoria went 1-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria went deep for his fourth home run of the season Sunday and has recorded a hit in four of the last five games. After a slow start to the year, he's beginning to improve his production at the plate, slashing .243/.263/.500 in 19 games for the Giants. The 32-year-old third baseman will look to stay hot as San Francisco starts a three-game series with Washington on Monday.

Longoria fell a triple short of the cycle Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in a 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria sat out Tuesday's contest with an ailing left ankle. The day off worked wonders for the veteran third baseman, as he reached base four times and provided a much-needed spark for a struggling San Francisco offense. The 32-year-old has snapped out of his early slump, batting .435 (10-for-23) with six extra-base hits and five RBI over his last six games.

Longoria (ankle) is hitting fifth and playing third base Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

"Longo" was scratched from Tuesday's contest due to a left ankle injury, but it seems like the night off was all he needed to get back into the lineup. He'll resume his normal spot in the lineup as he looks to improve upon his lowly .204 batting average.

Longoria was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks due to an ankle injury, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

An ankle issue that bothered Longoria during spring training resurfaced Tuesday, so Pablo Sandoval will now start at third base. Manager Bruce Bochy reported that Longoria would likely need a couple days to rest, so look for Sandoval to fill in at the hot corner in the meantime.

Longoria went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored Saturday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria took Clayton Richard deep in the fourth inning for his second home run of the season. He's been largely ineffective at the plate with his new team, highlighted by 17 strikeouts and one walk in 51 at-bats. He has shown some signs of life of late, posting two multi-hit games over his past three appearances so he may be in for a nice run soon.

Longoria is slashing a meager .163/.182/.302 through 11 games in his first season with San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Padres, but useful stat lines like those have been few and far between at the onset of the 2018 campaign. Longoria saw his production tail off last year (.261/.313/.424 with 20 home runs and 86 RBI) from his impressive 2016 season, but even those totals weren't far off from what he provided in 2014 and 2015. It is still early, so owners shouldn't jump ship and assume that this anemic production will stick all year. Longoria's teammate, Andrew McCutchen, proved that players can turn their early season slump around in just a game or two, so practice patience with your proven vets this early.

Longoria is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria has just one hit to his name this season (albeit a homer in Tuesday's tilt), so he'll head to the bench for a day off. Pablo Sandoval will make his first start of the season to replace him at the hot corner.

Longoria went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Tuesday's 6-4 loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran went 0-for-15 through his first four games with the Giants, so the monkey might finally be off his back after spending the first 10 years of his career with Tampa Bay. While the 32-year-old third baseman is probably past his prime, Longoria has also proven to be one of the more reliable mid-range assets at the hot corner over the past five years. He projects to turn in another serviceable campaign, and this could also end up proving to be a potential buy-low opportunity.

Longoria (ankle) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria had been battling ankle soreness since Saturday. Barring any setbacks, he should have enough time to be fully up to speed by Opening Day.
