Longoria found himself on the shelf right when he was catching fire at the plate. Through nine games in July, the 32-year-old was hitting .400 with six home runs. He hasn't played since July 14.

In his second season with the Giants, Longoria is batting .241 with 13 home runs and a .764 OPS. He'll bat fifth in his return to the lineup against the Rockies.
