Evan Longoria injury: Rays 3B suffers setback, rehab suspended indefinitely

Tuesday June 19th, 2012

Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria has re-aggravated the left-hamstring injury that sent him to the disabled list, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reported Monday night. Topkin reported that Longoria's rehab and road back to joining the Rays has been suspended "indefinitely."

Earlier Monday, the Tampa Tribune's Roger Mooney tweeted that Longoria had taken himself out of a rehab game Monday night with Triple-A Durham because of "discomfort" in his left hamstring.

Topkin reported that Longoria will head to Washington, D.C., to join the Rays on Tuesday. He will rehabilitate with the team there, but there is no timetable for his return.

Longoria has been out of the Rays lineup since May 3rd with a partially torn left hamstring. The Rays were hoping he would be able to rejoin the major-league team on the field later this week. Monday's game was his second rehab appearance. He said he felt good after suiting up as Durham's designated hitter on Saturday.
