ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay third baseman Evan Longoria is not expected to go on the disabled list because of a sore left hamstring.

Longoria, who leads the AL in voting for this year's All-Star game, was hurt running out a grounder in the sixth inning of Tuesday night's 6-2 win over Kansas City. He underwent tests that included an MRI exam on Wednesday.

Andrew Friedman, the team's executive vice president of baseball operations, said "the report is good" and that the Rays are "very optimistic that we can avoid a DL situation. He's a little sore. I'm confident that we will get him back soon."

Longoria is hitting .322 with 13 homers and 55 RBIs in 52 games this season.
