Rays Evan Longoria May Avoid DL

[1]Evan Longoria felt so much better Sunday that manager Joe Maddon said putting the third baseman on the disabled list may no longer be a necessary option.

Longoria, who left Friday’s game after irritating the plantar fasciitis problem in his right foot, might be available at least to pinch-hit as soon as tonight, and he could return to full duty soon.

“He actually felt pretty good (Sunday),” Maddon said. “It’s kind of encouraging. A lot of the pain was different. It wasn’t nearly as severe, so we’ll see. We might be able to use him in Houston like we had thought.”
