Rays' Longoria leaves with soreness, day to day

CBSSports.com wire reports

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Rays All-Star third baseman Evan Longoria left Saturday night's game against Baltimore because of muscle soreness on the left side on his upper body.

Longoria will have his oblique muscle re-evaluated on Sunday. He is hopeful of missing no more than a week.

Sean Rodriguez replaced Longoria at third to start the sixth inning of the Rays' 3-1 loss to the Orioles.

Longoria felt some soreness during batting practice and it continued into the game.

"It had been sore leading into the game," Longoria said. "I wanted to test it out during the game and as it progressed, it just got more and more sore."

Also, Orioles left fielder Luke Scott left in the seventh with a right groin injury, which occurred while running out a grounder. He is day to day.
