Evan Longoria aiming to return from bruised hand Monday

1 Comment

Evan Longoria went for X-rays yesterday after taking a Matt Bush fastball off his right hand, but he was diagnosed with merely a bruise and is now hoping to resume playing Monday.

Longoria told Bill Chastain of MLB.com that as soon as the swelling goes down and he’s able to pick up a bat he’ll “be back out there.”

And he also said he feels sorry for Bush, the former No. 1 overall pick now trying to make it as a reliever, because “I know he was pretty nervous about the whole situation.”
