  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Back at third base for Game 5

    Longoria is starting at third base and batting eighth Wednesday in Game 5 of the World Series against the Rangers.

    Emmanuel Rivera handled the hot corner in Game 4 on Tuesday, but the Diamondbacks will turn back to Longoria for Game 5 as they aim to avoid elimination. Longoria went 2-for-8 with an RBI and two runs scored over the first three games of the best-of-seven Fall Classic.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Takes seat for Game 4

    Longoria is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the World Series on Tuesday versus the Rangers.

    Emmanuel Rivera will start at third base and bat eighth as Tommy Pham occupies the DH role and hits fifth. Longoria went 0-for-2 with a strikeout in the Diamondbacks' Game 3 loss Monday and is slashing just .156/.220/.200 through 51 total plate appearances this postseason.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: In lineup for NLDS Game 3

    Longoria (hand) will be in the lineup Wednesday for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Longoria was removed from Game 2 on Monday after taking a pitch off his right hand in the top of the ninth inning, but X-rays turned up negative and the veteran third baseman is good to go for Wednesday's potential NLDS clincher at Chase Field. He is 3-for-15 with a double and two RBI through four postseason games.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Lifted after HBP

    Longoria is being considered day-to-day after being struck on the hand by a pitch during Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Longoria was drilled during the top of the ninth inning and was lifted in favor of a pinch runner, but his X-rays returned negative. The team will likely keep a close eye on the veteran third baseman over the next few days to determine whether he can play in Game 3 on Wednesday.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Remains in lineup Monday

    Longoria is starting at third base and batting eighth Monday in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    While Longoria's playing time during the regular season wasn't consistent, he's now started each of the Diamondbacks' four postseason contests (three against right-handers and one versus a lefty). The veteran infielder drove in a pair of runs in Arizona's Game 1 blowout victory.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Gets call at hot corner again

    Longoria is starting at third base and batting eighth Wednesday in Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Brewers.

    The Diamondbacks are sticking with the same lineup after they captured a Game 1 victory in Milwaukee. Longoria went 1-for-4 with a single Tuesday and made a few excellent defensive plays at the hot corner. The veteran infielder's playing time during the regular season was hit or miss, but it looks like manager Torey Lovullo trusts Longoria the most of his third base options for the playoffs.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Playing third base in Game 1

    Longoria is starting at third base and batting eighth Tuesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Brewers.

    Longoria and Emmanuel Rivera are Arizona's two options at third base with Jace Peterson being left off the roster for the best-of-three series versus Milwaukee. Longoria gets the call in Tuesday's opener as Rivera rides the pine. Both players struggled offensively over the final month of the regular season.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Draws walk, scores winning run

    Longoria entered as a pinch hitter, walked and scored a run in Saturday's 7-6 extra-innings win over the Cubs.

    Longoria pinch hit for Alek Thomas in the bottom of the 13th inning and eventually made it to second base, from where he raced home on a Gabriel Moreno single to score the game-winning run. Longoria adjusted his slide at the last moment to avoid the catcher's tag. It was a rare highlight in the third baseman's recent performance. Longoria is 7-for-43 over 16 games since returning from a back injury in August, and Saturday's run is the only one he's scored during that stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Late addition to lineup

    Longoria started at designated hitter and went 1-for-3 in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Orioles.

    Longoria was a late addition to the lineup after Tommy Pham (finger) was scratched. It's unclear if Pham's swollen pinky finger will keep him sidelined for Monday's series opener against Colorado. Longoria is 4-for-21 with three walks, one RBI and eight strikeouts over eight games since returning from the injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Returns as DH

    Longoria served as the designated hitter and went 1-for-3 in Monday's 4-3 extra-innings win over the Rangers.

    Longoria was activated from the injured list earlier in the day and found a spot in the lineup against a left-hander. The third base position has changed since the last time Longoria was active. Gone is Emmanuel Rivera and in are Jace Peterson and Buddy Kennedy, the latter starting at the hot corner Monday. The lefty-swinging Peterson has been getting most of the work, as manager Torey Lovullo likes to platoon the position.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Activated from injured list

    Longoria (back) was activated from the injured list Monday.

    Longoria began a rehab assignment last Thursday, and the Diamondbacks decided he was ready to rejoin the big club after appearing in three games over the last four days. Based on his usage earlier in the season it's unlikely he will play every day, but with an .803 OPS and all kinds of Diamondbacks manning the hot corner in during his absence, Longoria should jump right back into the mix.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Starts rehab assignment

    Longoria (back) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

    Longoria went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks in his first game with Reno. The veteran third baseman has been out for all of August due to a back injury but appears to be close to activation.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Suffers setback

    Longoria (back) returned to Arizona on Thursday for more treatment, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Longoria traveled with the team to San Francisco, suggesting a return after the minimum 10-day requirement on the injured list, but he woke up Wednesday feeling stiff and was sent back to Arizona. The 37-year-old Longoria could still return at the 10-day minimum, but back issues are notoriously difficult to predict.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Placed on IL

    The Diamondbacks placed Longoria on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a strained lower back, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Manager Torey Lovullo noted he doesn't expect Longoria to be on the IL longer than the minimum 10 days, so it doesn't seem like the back injury is too severe. Josh Rojas will come up from Triple-A Reno to take Longoria's roster spot.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: On bench Friday

    Longoria is not in the lineup Friday against the Reds.

    Emmanuel Rivera will make another start at third base, his fifth start there in the Diamondbacks' last six games. Longoria is in a 2-for-19 (.105) rut since the beginning of July.
