Longoria was dealt to the Giants in exchange for Denard Span, Christian Arroyo, Matt Krook and Stephen Woods on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The longtime Ray is set to move on from the organization that drafted him following 12 years with the club, and will immediately become the starter at the hot corner for the Giants in 2018. During this past season, Longoria slashed .261/.313/.424 with 20 home runs, 86 RBI and six stolen bases, and played in 156 games, which actually marked his lowest amount of appearances in a season since 2012, when he dealt with a hamstring injury for most of the year. This was also the fifth straight year that Longoria hit at least 20 home runs, and the fourth time in the past five years that he's driven in over 85 runs.

Longoria went 1-for-4 with two RBI from a fielder's choice and a solo home run in Friday's 7-0 win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria went deep for the second time in the last six contests and reached the 20-homer mark for the fifth consecutive season. The 31-year-old has seen a general power downturn in 2017, but he's at least enjoyed a bit of resurgence in that department in September. After blasting just one round tripper in August, he's tripled that figure this month.

Longoria is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Having started every game since Aug. 12, the Rays will give Longoria a well-deserved day off Sunday. Daniel Robertson will hit ninth and start at the hot corner in place of Longoria. The team has Monday off, so Longoria will likely be back in action for Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees.

Longoria went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-3 win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria's 353-foot shot to left in the third extended the Rays' lead to 5-2, serving as his first round tripper since Sept. 6. and only his third since the calendar flipped to August. The veteran third baseman has had a solid month at the plate despite the lack of pop (four extra-base hits over 80 plate appearances), hitting .284 and driving in 11 runs.

Longoria went 2-for-4 with two RBI from a run-scoring single and infield single in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria was nearly a one-man offense Sunday, giving the Rays an early 2-0 lead with his pair of timely hits. The 31-year-old has hits in four straight and five multi-hit efforts overall in September. The one notable difference in Longoria's production in the second half as compared to the first is in his power numbers, as his home run total (six) has been cut in half while his HR/FB rate has dropped from 12.0 percent to 7.8 percent.

Longoria went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The home run was Longoria's first since Aug. 1. In a season in which seemingly every MLB regular has 20 or more home runs, Longoria still sits with just 18 in 538 at-bats. He entered play Wednesday with a .164 ISO, down from .248 a year ago.

Longoria went 2-for-5 with three RBI from a pair of run-scoring singles in Monday's 11-4 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria is only 4-for-22 over his last six games, yet he's compiled six RBI over that span thanks to some timely hitting. The veteran third baseman hasn't quite been able to replicate last season's resurgent numbers, but he's only three round trippers away from reach the 20-homer mark for the fifth straight season and ninth time in his 10 major-league campaigns.

Longoria went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria provided one of only two multi-hit efforts on the afternoon for the Rays, extending his hitting streak to four games in the process. The veteran third baseman has seen a notable power downturn in August, however, as he's smacked only one home run despite still sporting a solid 31.4 percent hard contact rate. Despite Longoria putting the ball in the air at a season-best 41.4-percent clip in August, his HR/FB rate has dropped from last month's 13.8 percent to a season-low 3.4 percent.
