  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Draws walk, scores winning run

    Longoria entered as a pinch hitter, walked and scored a run in Saturday's 7-6 extra-innings win over the Cubs.

    Longoria pinch hit for Alek Thomas in the bottom of the 13th inning and eventually made it to second base, from where he raced home on a Gabriel Moreno single to score the game-winning run. Longoria adjusted his slide at the last moment to avoid the catcher's tag. It was a rare highlight in the third baseman's recent performance. Longoria is 7-for-43 over 16 games since returning from a back injury in August, and Saturday's run is the only one he's scored during that stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Late addition to lineup

    Longoria started at designated hitter and went 1-for-3 in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Orioles.

    Longoria was a late addition to the lineup after Tommy Pham (finger) was scratched. It's unclear if Pham's swollen pinky finger will keep him sidelined for Monday's series opener against Colorado. Longoria is 4-for-21 with three walks, one RBI and eight strikeouts over eight games since returning from the injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Returns as DH

    Longoria served as the designated hitter and went 1-for-3 in Monday's 4-3 extra-innings win over the Rangers.

    Longoria was activated from the injured list earlier in the day and found a spot in the lineup against a left-hander. The third base position has changed since the last time Longoria was active. Gone is Emmanuel Rivera and in are Jace Peterson and Buddy Kennedy, the latter starting at the hot corner Monday. The lefty-swinging Peterson has been getting most of the work, as manager Torey Lovullo likes to platoon the position.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Activated from injured list

    Longoria (back) was activated from the injured list Monday.

    Longoria began a rehab assignment last Thursday, and the Diamondbacks decided he was ready to rejoin the big club after appearing in three games over the last four days. Based on his usage earlier in the season it's unlikely he will play every day, but with an .803 OPS and all kinds of Diamondbacks manning the hot corner in during his absence, Longoria should jump right back into the mix.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Starts rehab assignment

    Longoria (back) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

    Longoria went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks in his first game with Reno. The veteran third baseman has been out for all of August due to a back injury but appears to be close to activation.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Suffers setback

    Longoria (back) returned to Arizona on Thursday for more treatment, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Longoria traveled with the team to San Francisco, suggesting a return after the minimum 10-day requirement on the injured list, but he woke up Wednesday feeling stiff and was sent back to Arizona. The 37-year-old Longoria could still return at the 10-day minimum, but back issues are notoriously difficult to predict.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Placed on IL

    The Diamondbacks placed Longoria on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a strained lower back, Alex Weiner of reports.

    Manager Torey Lovullo noted he doesn't expect Longoria to be on the IL longer than the minimum 10 days, so it doesn't seem like the back injury is too severe. Josh Rojas will come up from Triple-A Reno to take Longoria's roster spot.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: On bench Friday

    Longoria is not in the lineup Friday against the Reds.

    Emmanuel Rivera will make another start at third base, his fifth start there in the Diamondbacks' last six games. Longoria is in a 2-for-19 (.105) rut since the beginning of July.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Covering hot corner

    Longoria is starting at third base and batting sixth Friday in Toronto.

    Emmanuel Rivera started three of the last four games before the All-Star break at third base, but it will be Longoria there to kick off the second half as Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo continues to mix and match with the two at the hot corner. Longoria has an .828 OPS in 2023 but finished the first half hitless in his last three starts.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Day off Saturday

    Longoria isn't in the Diamondbacks' lineup Saturday against the Pirates.

    Longoria is hitless in nine plate appearances since the beginning of July, so he'll get a day off Saturday to regroup. Emmanuel Rivera will fill start at third base in Longoria's place and bat sixth.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Sitting again Sunday

    Longoria is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    Longoria will head to the bench for the third time in Arizona's past four games, as Emmanuel Rivera appears to be manager Torey Lovullo's preferred option at the hot corner. The pair will likely continue splitting playing time at the position going forward, though Rivera has a slight leg up for now.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Takes seat Thursday

    Longoria is out of the lineup Thursday against the Mets.

    Emmanuel Rivera will start at third base and bat sixth. Longoria seemed to gain a leg up on the position toward the end of June, but he and Rivera have largely been splitting playing time over the last week or so.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Takes seat Tuesday

    Longoria is not in the lineup Tuesday versus the Mets.

    Longoria caught fire toward the end of June while taking over as the Diamondbacks' primary third baseman, but he'll grab some rest Tuesday as Emmanuel Rivera gets a turn at the hot corner.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Sitting Saturday

    Longoria is not in Saturday's lineup against the Angels.

    Longoria had started four of the team's last five games and has a three-game hitting streak. However, he'll hit the bench Saturday, with Kyle Lewis entering the lineup while hitting second and serving as the designated hitter.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Playing time on uptick

    Longoria started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 6-2 win over the Angels.

    Longoria started for the fourth time in the last five games and has experienced an uptick in playing time since Arizona demoted Josh Rojas to Triple-A Reno. For a time, it looked like Emmanuel Rivera moved ahead of him on the depth chart, but the 37-year-old Longoria has been one of the team's hottest hitters of late, posting a 1.178 OPS since June 12.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Goes yard in win

    Longoria went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Rays.

    Longoria isn't seeing consistent playing time, but he's swatted six of his 11 homers this year over his last 13 games. In that span, he's gone 12-for-39 (.308) with 13 RBI, three doubles and a 6:10 BB:K. The veteran third baseman remains stuck in a part-time role, though he continues to make the most of his opportunities. He's up to a passable .244/.301/.569 slash line across 40 contests this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Smacks 10th homer

    Longoria went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 8-5 loss against the Giants.

    Longoria is on a four-game hit streak and is slashing .320/.379/.800 in the month of June. That's the good news; the bad news is he's started just six of 21 games during the month. The longtime veteran is on pace to hit his most homers in a season since 2019, when he launched 20 as a member of the Giants. The demotion of Josh Rojas to Triple-A Reno benefits Longoria, but the Diamondbacks have mostly rolled with Emmanuel Rivera (.316 average, .372 BABIP) at third base. Additionally, the return of Alek Thomas from Reno crowds the outfield, which has moved Lourdes Gurriel to the primary DH spot.
