Longoria went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored during Wednesday's loss to Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has put together an encouraging stretch at the dish dating back to mid-June with a .317 batting average, six homers, 26 RBI and 21 runs through his past 32 games. For the year, Longoria still boasts a mediocre .773 OPS and projects to finish well short of last season's counting stats.

Longoria went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria extended his hitting streak to nine games with his first three-hit effort since June 10. His average has jumped to .267 in that time, putting the career .270 hitter between .265 and .275 for the fourth time in five years. The 31-year-old third baseman's .444 slugging percentage still leaves much to be desired when compared to his .521 mark from 2016.

Longoria went 2-for-4 with a double and solo home run in Friday's 2-1 extra-inning victory over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria got his second half of the season off to a fine start with a 418-foot shot to left center in the first off Ricky Nolasco and added his 23rd double later in the contest. The veteran third baseman extended the hitting streak he'd initiated back on July 4 to seven games and is now slashing .324/.316/.500 over the first nine games of July.

Longoria went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run during Sunday's loss to Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

It was a huge series against the Orioles for the third baseman, as Longoria hit two homers, drove in eight runs and scored four times. He's posting another solid fantasy campaign with 12 round trippers, 46 RBI and 43 runs, but his .253/.318/.434 slash line certainly isn't turning any heads.

Longoria went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria connected on his 11th bomb of the year to tie the game at three in the third inning of the game the Rays would go on to lose. Despite hitting in the middle of the Rays lineup, his .428 slugging percentage has made him a very disappointing player this season.

Longoria went 1-for-3 with four RBI from a two-run single, a sacrifice fly and a bases-loaded walk in Friday's 15-5 win over the Orioles. He also walked and scored twice.

EDGE Analysis

In what was a red-letter night for the Rays offense, Longoria tied Shane Peterson for the team lead in RBI. It was the veteran third baseman's second four-RBI effort of the season and represented a breakout effort in that department, considering he'd driven in only one run the previous seven games. Longoria's current .250 average represents a notable drop from last season's .273 figure, but his 17 percent strikeout rate is actually his lowest since he posted a 16.2 percent figure in 2011.

Longoria is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Reds, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Kevin Cash will take advantage of the Rays' open date in the schedule Thursday to give Longoria two full days of rest after the franchise cornerstone started the last 46 games at either third base or designated hitter. With Longoria sitting, the newly acquired Trevor Plouffe will cover the hot corner and bat fifth.

Longoria went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk and three runs in Sunday's 9-1 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria broke out of a modest 0-for-7 slump that had encompassed his last two games in fine fashion, going deep for the first time since June 10 in the process. The slugging third baseman currently sports his lowest average (.253) since 2014 but has been trending in the right direction lately, raising that figure 16 points since May 30.
