Giants acquire Evan Longoria in five-player deal with Rays
The San Francisco Giants have acquired third baseman Evan Longoria from the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Rays get back third baseman Christian Arroyo, outfielder Denard Span, and pitchers Matt Krook and Stephen Woods. Longoria is going back to his native California, which could help jumpstart the 32 year-old veteran's average at the plate. The Rays are expected to eat some of the $68 million still owed to Longoria as part of the deal.
Longoria had a .261/.313/.424 slash line in 2017, with 20 home runs, 86 RBI, and 71 runs scored over 613 at bats.
