Longoria went 2-for-2 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Monday's 12-0 blowout victory over the Rockies.
Longoria made his return to the lineup after missing the prior three games with a tight left hamstring, and he picked up right where he left off. The 35-year-old singled home a run before later scoring himself during a four-run first inning, then came back the following frame to plate two more on a double to deep left field. He was then replaced on base by Jason Vosler as a precautionary measure to get him some added rest. Longoria has been excellent so far with a slash line of .316/.409/.614 over 57 at-bats. He's on pace for the best statistical season of his career while ranking among the MLB leaders in barrel rate, exit velocity and a number of other Statcast categories. Of course, it's questionable whether he'll be able to keep it up, as Longoria has finished with an OPS around .700 in each of the last four seasons.

There was no immediate reason given for Longoria's exit, though he dealt with plantar fasciitis during spring training.

The 35-year-old has now homered in three of four games to open the season, but it's been a long time since he posted particularly special power numbers.
