Evan Longoria will begin a rehab stint with the Durham Bulls on Saturday, June 16th. The Bulls visit Rochester on Monday for a four-game series. Unless Longoria's rehab assignment is two days or less, he will be in uniform for the Bulls at Frontier.
Longoria has been on the disabled list since May 1st with a partially torn left hamstring. In 23 games with the Tampa Bay Rays this year, he was hitting .329 with four homers and 19 RBIs. Longoria was the 2008 AL Rookie of the Year.
Jeff Keppinger is also on a rehab assignment. The 32 year old big leaguer went on the DL May 19th with a broken toe.
Both players are meeting the Bulls in Lehigh Valley.
