BALTIMORE, MD -- Evan Longoria will begin a rehab assisgnment tomorrow for the AAA Durham Bulls.

He will strictly work as a Designated Hitter for the immediate future, and will see how it goes.

There still is no timetable for his return to the Rays, but Longoria said he's "ready as he'll ever be" offensively.It's playing defense, and accelerating on the basepaths, that will be the big adjustment.

Longoria has been on the disabled list since May 1 with a partially torn hamstring.
