Devil Rays third baseman Evan Longoria left Tuesday’s game after being hit in the left elbow by Double-A West Tenn righthander Doug Fister. Though the hit by pitch extended Longoria’s on-base streak to 33 games, the elbow swelled throughout the game and forced the third overall pick in 2006 to the bench after the third inning.
In other prospect injury news, Deolis Guerra is currently shut down with minor shoulder tendinitis. Though he is only expected to miss posibly two turns in the high Class A St. Lucie rotation, the Mets are being understandably cautious with the 18-year-old righthander.
“He came up with a little tendinitis in the shoulder and we decided to be careful with it,” Mets vice president of player personnel Tony Bernazard said. “We’re going to take our time.”
Brewers third baseman Ryan Braun’s wrist and groin injuries appear to be worse than originally expected. Braun, Milwaukee’s 2005 first-rounder, hasn’t played since May 5. The 23-year-old was hitting .358/.426/.716 with eight homers in 95 at-bats before going down.
