Rays manager Joe Maddon said that he "would bet" Evan Longoria (oblique) is headed to the disabled list.
It's expected to cost the slugger a minimum of three weeks. Longoria said Saturday after straining his left oblique that he didn't expect to be out longer than a week, but it was just him being overoptimistic. The Rays put him through tests and had him visit with the team trainers Sunday and evidently felt a DL stint was probably the wisest move. Sean Rodriguez will play third while Longo is out, while Ben Zobrist moves to second and Matt Joyce right field.

Pun point.
S-Rod and Felipe Lopez play 3B, with Rodriguez getting the lions share.
