Longoria back in Rays camp after birth
February 23, 2013
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) - Rays third baseman Evan Longoria returned to camp after missing three days due to the birth of his daughter.
Longoria, and girlfriend Jaime Edmondson, welcomed Elle Leona Longoria, who was born more than a month premature, on Feb. 20. The All-Star 27-year-old returned to the Rays training facility Saturday morning and spoke about become a first-time father.
``It was pretty miraculous,'' Longoria said. ``I've experienced a lot of things in this game and that was like nothing I'd ever experienced.''
Longoria did not play in the split-squad game against the Pirates on Saturday, but manager Joe Maddon said he may make his spring debut Tuesday against Houston.
``There's no rush,'' Maddon said.
Longoria missed 13 weeks in 2012 due to a hamstring injury.
