ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Evan Longoria irritated the plantar fasciitis in his right foot Friday night, the Tampa Bay Rays said. He will be reevaluated Saturday. Longoria grounded out to second base in the second inning of a game between the Rays and Detroit Tigers at Tropicana Field and appeared to wince in pain as he passed first. Infielderoutfielder Kelly Johnson replaced Longoria at third base in the third. On June 14, Longoria revealed that he had suffered from plantar fasciitis for about two weeks. As a precaution, the Rays slotted him as a designated hitter on occasion before he made a return to third base on June 18 against the Boston Red Sox. Plantar fasciitis, a common basketball injury, includes the inflammation of connective tissue on the sole of a foot. On June 14, Longoria said he had no experience with the condition, but he described the sensation as "pretty painful." He said he felt decent at the beginning of a game, but the pain was strong by the end. "I'm kind of getting to the point where I don't feel like I'm doing any good to go out there and run around on it," Longoria said then. Longoria entered Friday hitting .299 with 17 home runs and 47 RBI. You can follow Andrew Astleford on Twitter @aastleford or email him at aastleford@gmail.com.
