Longoria named AL Player of the Week

Rays third baseman Evan Longoria was named American League Player of the Week on Monday.

Longoria hit .464 with three homers and 11 RBI, including a two-run walkoff homer in Saturday's 8-7 win.

Manager Joe Maddon said Longoria has been at the top of his offensive game, and it's shown, as the three time All-Star is among the top-10 in the league in batting average, on base percentage and slugging percentage.
