• Evan Longoria (left hamstring) will go accompany the team on its next road trip, even though he's on the disabled list.

"He's going to come on the road with us because he is working on baseball skills right now, not just rehabbing in the training room," manager Joe Maddon said. "That means he's getting closer. So hopefully, by the middle of the month, we'll be getting really, really close."

Maddon noted that Longoria's rehab assignment should begin in the middle of the month and that Longoria will be back in action with the team prior to the All-Star break.

• Desmond Jennings (left knee) played five innings in left field for Class A Advanced Charlotte on Thursday night and went 1-for-3 with a double and a run score. On Friday night he will begin his rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham. Maddon said that there is a chance Jennings could be with the team in time for next week's trip to New York.

• Brandon Guyer underwent surgery on his left shoulder on Thursday in Pensacola, Fla., performed by Dr. James Andrews.
