Expect to see Evan Longoria in the lineup Tuesday.

The Rays third baseman took batting practice and ran the bases prior to Monday's game with the Boston Red Sox, and reported no problems.

Both Longoria and manager Joe Maddon have said that barring any setbacks, he would play Tuesday in Port Charlotte when Tampa Bay welcomes the Houston Astros.

Longoria missed three days of camp last week to be with girlfriend Jaime Edmondson as the couple welcomed their first child.
