After serving as the DH in the Tampa Bay's 5-3 win against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday, Evan Longoria is expected to return to third base tonight when the Rays begin a three-game series with the A's.

Manager Joe Maddon said Longoria will alternate between third and DH during the series and will probably play third on consecutive days with the occasional break as the DH on the upcoming road trip.

Longoria said he is "onboard" with that plan.
