Evan Longoria’s knee injury is scary for the Rays, but Joe Maddon is calling it a day-to-day thing. Nevertheless, the Rays are taking no chances with it, so he’ll have an MRI in Tampa today.
Longoria has started the year strong, hitting .325/.432/.563 with four homers and 19 RBI. If he’s lost for any significant time, it’s bad news for Tampa Bay
Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. No makeup date has been announced yet. As Brink points out, the two clubs meet again in Pittsburgh September 21-23 and both have an off day on the 20th, so that could be a potential makeup date.
Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.
The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in third place.
