Latest Update Longoria drives in three runs in win over Sox Sat Jul, 26, 05:20 AM
Is one of the game's best all-round performers at the hot corner. Is a power hitter that can also maintain a solid batting average. He's great defensively. Performs well under pressure.
Flaws: : If he has one main flaw at the plate, it's a reasonably high strikeout rate. Also, he can go into prolonged hitting slumps at times. Isn't really much of a base-stealing threat, either.
Longoria has picked up the pace in the second half, hitting .280 with five extra-base hits (1 HR), nine RBI and three runs scored. After an underachieving first half, his recent production has to have fantasy owners pleased, despite hitting just .242 for the month. If the Rays keep playing like hey have been expect Longoria to continue trending in the right direction as we get deeper into the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
It's been quite a lackluster season for Longoria, but he has been known to be strong in the second half. Even with his struggles this season, he remains one of the better options at third base.Analyst: David Kerr
With the two doubles, Longoria broke former Ray Carl Crawford's franchise mark for doubles (216) and the RBI on Sunday gave Longo 592 for his career which puts him in a tie with Crawford for that team record as well.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Although Longoria may only be batting .244 in the month of July, his 10 RBI puts him on track to have his most productive month in that category. He is now sporting a .260 average with 11 home runs and 47 RBI through 377 at-bats while sitting on a career-worst 34.3 AB/HR. Those who are optimistic that he will bounce back in the second half will want to buy-low now in the event it does happen, but we have been waiting a long time now and the more time that passes makes it seem like we may have to wait until next season to him to return to the level of production we have grown to expect from him.
