Rays' Longoria back at camp after 3-day leave
Rays third baseman Evan Longoria has returned to camp after missing three days due to the birth of his daughter.PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Rays third baseman Evan Longoria has returned to camp after missing three days due to the birth of his daughter.
Longoria, and girlfriend Jaime Edmondson, welcomed Elle Leona Longoria, who was born more than a month premature, on Feb. 20.
The 27-year-old All-Star returned to the Rays training facility Saturday and spoke about becoming a first-time father.
"It was pretty miraculous," Longoria said. "I've experienced a lot of things in this game and that was like nothing I'd ever experienced."
Longoria did not play in the split-squad game against the Pirates on Saturday, but said he expects to make his spring debut Monday against Boston.
Longoria missed 13 weeks in 2012 because of a hamstring injury.
