I guess I'd dump Keppinger...


ya... I would say FOR SURE. The upside is huge and you're not going to miss keppinger.


What is the upside/ceiling we're talking about?
500ab 20 hr 85 rbi .275
or is that far too optomistic?

I thought they were keeping him down for a month?
Will they save any dough keeping him down for 2 weeks?
Oh well I'm happy, I've got him in one league.

I wonder if they are just bringing him up till aybar comes back. Then send him down to save on arbitration?

Does it work that way or does he come up and it starts?

Longoria is pretty much lined up to be a Super 2 now for sure barring any kind of injury. If he hits the ball any at all with Aybar hurt, he is not going anywhere. I really don't think the Super 2 worries the Rays though, as they will probably do anything possible to lock up Longoria for the long term when that time comes.

So if he is in the lineup today who is starting him. And who are you benching to play Longoria. My problem is I have Arod and Aram at 3rd and CI. And i have been starting the relatively hot jorge cantu at util. im probably going to bench him for the first day and the moment he shows life ill bench my revolving Util player for him.

I own him in every league, but one and I am starting him in none of them. Right now I have too many est players playing well in my lineup. If he hits the way he should, I will move someone for him

You will want to play Evan over Cantu very soon

I'm taking the chance and starting him today, but only because the circumstance makes it ok. I have Figgins at 3B and a starting OF of Holliday/Rios/Swisher, however Swisher is not playing today and my backup CF/RF players are Michael Bourn (playing poorly) and Johnny Damon (playing poorly). So I'm moving Figgins to CF. GO EVAN GO

I would take on Daniel Cabrera with him.
The only problem in my Longoria team is that nearly everyone is hot right now (awesome problem to have).
I benched Cust (vs Carmona) to squeeze in Longoria.

Per CBS:

Evan Longoria, 3B TB
News: Tampa Bay prospect Evan Longoria was recalled from Triple-A Durham and will make his much-anticipated major league debut Saturday against the Orioles. Longoria, sent back to the minors despite having an outstanding spring training, replaces third baseman Willy Aybar. The Rays placed Aybar on the 15-day disabled list Friday night after he missed his second straight game with a sore left hamstring that may sideline him up to four weeks. "We've been decimated by injuries. It's not necessarily the ideal way that we wanted to call him up," Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. "But we're confident in his ability to adjust at the plate, and what he brings to us defensively is something that we felt was very important to where we're going. We'll see what happens and reassess when Willy is ready to come back. We'll let things play out."

Analysis: By spending 13 days in the minors so far this season -- thus not qualifying for a full season -- the third baseman's eligibility for free agency is pushed back an extra year until after the 2014 season. Longoria was the third pick in the June 2006 draft. In seven games at Durham this season, he hit .200 with no homers and five RBI. Pick up the elite prospects in all leagues at this point. He is available in 39 percent of CBSSports.com leagues. He could be this year's Hunter Pence or Ryan J. Braun impact call-up.


So, I'd assume, as long as he doesn't suck, he'll stay up and be their everyday third baseman? Or, at least, that's what I hope! :-D
