Evan Longoria traded to San Francisco Giants

Rays will receive four players in return, including Denard Span

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Well, despite what many of us had thought possible, it appears as though the Rays are trading Evan Longoria to the San Francisco Giants.

The report comes from Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times:

And Ken Rosenthal is saying the same thing:

The potential return could include Christian Arroyo, the #89 prospect in baseball before the 2017 season. He is a 22-year-old infielder with an OPS of .548 in 34 career MLB games. Denard Span may be included as well.

If the report is true, it would leave Evan Longoria with 1,435 glorious games in a Tampa Bay Rays uniform.
