Rays Longoria's rehab stint suspended indefinitely



Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria's rehab assignment was suspended indefinitely Monday night after he experienced some discomfort in his partially torn left hamstring. Longoria will join the Rays in Washington D.C. Tuesday and continue his rehab there with no timetable for his return. The Rays say Longoria, in the second game on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham, didn't want to push it after feeling soreness running to first base in Rochester so he was lifted in the third inning for a pinch-hitter. It's a setback for Longoria, a three-time All Star who has been out since May 3 but had hoped to be back with the Rays this week. He felt good after Saturday's first rehab game with Durham, going 1-for-4 with a single as designated hitter. He was off Sunday and was DH Monday, before he felt discomfort and was pulled.
