Long went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two stolen bases in a loss to the Astros on Monday.

Long continues to make a solid impression in his first taste of big-league action. The rookie's production Monday pushed his line to .244/.380/.390 (50 plate appearances), and although RBI opportunities have been limited at the bottom of the order, his speed has helped six of his 10 hits go for extra bases (all doubles). Dee Gordon (wrist) is getting closer to a return from the injured list, however, and it remains to be seen if there will still be a place for Long on the big-league roster once that comes to pass.
