Rays | Evan Longoria away from team

Updating a previous item, Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria did not attend the Thursday, Feb. 21, workout, and manager Joe Maddon said he wasn't sure when Longoria would return to the team. Longoria's girlfriend, Jaime Edmondson, gave birth to the couple's first child the night before. "Just wanted to know that he was well, obviously, that she was well and the baby was well and everything was fine," Maddon said. "That's all I wrote. I didn't say when he needed to be back. I didn't ask him when he will be back. I just told him take care of what he has to do and let us know. He told me everything was great."
