Evan Longoria not ready to return from bruised hand

0 Comments

Evan Longoria had been hoping to rejoin the Rays’ lineup tomorrow after taking a Matt Bush fastball off his hand Thursday, but it looks like the bruise will keep him sidelined longer.

Longoria told Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune that he had to cut today’s batting practice session short and “shut it down” after just a couple swings because his swollen hand was still a problem.

He’s still aiming to see game action by the end of this week, but in the meantime Bush will probably continue to feel guilty.
