MLB - Scoop Du Jour

Evan LongoriaTampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria(notes) is rehabbing a strained left oblique muscle and is feeling just fine about his progress.

"I feel really good," Longoria said, according to the Tampa Tribune. "This is the point in time where the trainers kind of have to do their job in forcing me to back off of it, but I feel like there is an opportunity to push a little more."

Even though Longoria can come off the disabled list Monday, the Tribune reports that he'll miss "a minimum of three weeks" from when he went on the DL on April 3.

The 4-8 Rays likely cannot wait for the guy who batted .294, popped 22 homers, and knocked in 104 runs last year to be back in the lineup.
