Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (foot) has plantar fasciitis in his right foot and may serve as designated hitter throughout this weekend. He's doing so Friday, June 14.
Fantasy Tip: This is just something he'll have to play through, unless it really debilitates him. Sometimes this can affect play, depending on its severity. Keep an eye out, but you should start making plans just in case he needs an extended absence. Considering Longo's recent injury history, don't write it off. It'd probably be a mix of Kelly Johnson, who's starting Friday, and Ryan Roberts, among others, at the hot corner in his stead.
