As Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported earlier today, 3x MLB All-Star Evan Longoria has agreed to a 1-year deal worth $5 million with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Longoria was drafted 3rd overall in the 2006 MLB Amateur Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays. Longoria would make the ASG in his rookie year and took home the AL Rookie of the Year award. Longoria is also a 3x MLB Gold Glove award winner, in 2009, 2010, and 2017, and is a 2009 Silver Slugger award recipient.


Longoria was most recently a member of the San Francisco Giants, where he played 3B alongside longtime Giant Brandon Crawford.

Longoria may take the spot of Josh Rojas, who is extremely flexible position-wise, at 3B. Rojas could move back to the outfield, or Evan Longoria could split time at DH with Seth Beer.
