MLB: Another who misses Opening Day with Giants; he is a three time All Star and three Gold Glove with Rays

The San Francisco Giants announced this Monday night that the veteran third baseman Evan Longoria will have surgery to repair a ligament in his right index finger. His schedule is unclear, but the team noted that his finger is expected to be immobilized for at least 10 days.

More will be known about how long the Giants will be without Longoria in the coming days, but at least he is scheduled to open the year on the disabled list. Opening Day is eight days away, which means his finger will likely be immobilized by the time games start:

He’ll likely need some time between then and his return to MLB action to participate in some baseball activities and perhaps embark on a minor league rehab assignment.

It will be the fifth straight season with a stint on the disabled list for Longoria, who hasn’t reached 600 plate appearances in a year since 2017. He missed a couple of months last year with a shoulder problem, but the three-time All-Star enjoyed an offensive resurgence when he was healthy.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. This is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
