One on One with Evan Longoria

5 Comments

Our own Tiffany Simons interviewed Evan Longoria and he let spill on all manner of topics, including whether he did his own stunts in that New Era commercial, his recent modeling gig (the Men’s Journal one, that is. Get your mind out of the gutter); which Tampa Bay Ray is the greatest card shark (I was surprised by his answer); and the one person who’s had the most influence on his game.  Hint: the answer to the last question is not Pat Burrell.

Oh, and we’re totally fining Tiffany for not calling out Longoria for saying that he likes to watch ESPN on the team plane instead of NBC products like “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation” or “The Marriage Ref.”

Enjoy!

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez exited Sunday afternoon’s game against the Rays in the 10th inning due to a hip/groin issue. Manager Aaron Boone said Sanchez is likely headed to the 10-day disabled list, MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports.

Sanchez went 0-for-4 with a walk before departing. He appeared to suffer the injury running to first base when he grounded into a 6-4-3 double play in the 10th inning. On the season, Sanchez is batting .190/.291/.433 with 14 home runs, 41 RBI, and 36 runs scored in 265 plate appearances.

Austin Romine replaced Sanchez in the 10th inning and will handle the bulk of the catching responsibilities while Sanchez is out.
