Longoria is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Longoria will take a seat for the first time all month as manager Bruce Bochy looks to rest the veteran third baseman with the Giants out of playoff contention. Alen Hanson is starting at the hot corner and hitting sixth in his stead.
Longoria went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 4-2 win over the Padres. Longoria currently leads all Giants with 16 homers despite missing six weeks with a broken hand. Outside of decent power totals, the veteran third baseman has otherwise been a disappointment from a fantasy perspective with a .249/.289/.429 slash line over 114 games.
Longoria went 1-for-4 with a triple and a trio of RBI in Monday's loss to Colorado. Longoria has gotten off to a strong start in September, providing a triple, a homer and four RBI in three starts. The 32-year-old is currently sitting at 15 homers through 102 games, and has an outside shot of reaching the 20-homer mark despite missing six weeks with a broken hand earlier this year.
Longoria went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Mets on Saturday. The moonshot to left-center field was his 15th of the season, his second in his career off Steven Matz, and his third in his last 10 games. The 32-year-old is hardly the power threat he used to be and resides in a tepid lineup, but he's still a heart-of-the-order asset who should serve as useful corner-infield depth in many mixed leagues. Longoria is slashing .244/.282/.427 with 46 RBI in 412 plate appearances.
Longoria is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. It appears to be a rare day off for Longoria, who had started 25 consecutive games heading into Wednesday, slashing just .222/.264/.394 over that stretch. Alen Hanson is starting at third base in the series finale.
