[1]The Rays appear confident Evan Longoria (plantar fasciitis) won’t be going on the disabled list, with the All-Star third baseman hoping he can return tonight.

Longoria tested his troublesome right foot with early infield work before Monday’s game against the Astros, and he took regular batting practice with the team, saying it felt a lot better.

Manager Joe Maddon said it’s an awkward injury that is “pretty much pain tolerance,” which is why it’s a day-by-day situation. He said Longoria might have been able to pinch-hit Monday night if needed.
