Evan Longoria Aggravates Hamstring During Rehab Assignment

Evan Longoria gave the Rays a .329/.433/.561 triple-slash with four home runs and seven doubles in 82 at-bats in a torrid start to his 2012 season. Since sustaining a torn hamstring, though, he's given them nothing, and has been slow to recuperate. Monday night is part and parcel with that trend, as Longoria left a rehab assignment and suspended his recovery after aggravating the injury, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Longoria felt soreness while running to first base in a game for triple-A Durham, and was removed for a pinch-runner. He will rejoin the Rays in Washington on Tuesday and continue his rehab with the team.

Tampa Bay was 15-8 before Longoria's injury, which has kept him out since May 3. Since then, the Rays have gone just 22-21, and sit four games behind the streaking Yankees in the AL East and in second place in the AL Wild Card standings.
