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
The Angels have signed pitcher Matt Harvey to a one-year contract, MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports. Fancred’s Jon Heyman reports that the contract is for $11 million with an additional $3 million available through performance incentives.
Harvey, 29, spent 2018 with the Mets and Reds, posting an aggregate 4.94 ERA with a 131/37 K/BB ratio in 155 innings. He started off poorly with the Mets, so they traded him to the Reds in early May. He pitched much better in Cincinnati.
Harvey should have a spot secured at the back of the Angels’ rotation, but health and performance can always change that leading up to Opening Day.
