Longoria optimistic Rays can be better in 2017

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) Evan Longoria is sporting a new look in spring training and feeling better about what the Tampa Bay Rays have done in hopes of giving themselves a better chance to win.

The 31-year-old third baseman still isn't a fan of last month's trade that sent second baseman and close friend Logan Forsythe to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a pitching prospect; however, the three-time All-Star isn't letting his personal displeasure cloud his overall view of efforts to improve the Rays' roster.

"We were all a little bit upset by the loss of Logan. I was about as vocal as I've ever been on any given topic or move being made. But that said, I think some of the additions we did make are really good," said Longoria, preparing for his 10th big league season and rocking a full beard he began growing three months ago.
