Here are this morning’s updates on the injured Rays:

3B Evan Longoria (swollen right hand) said he will likely return to the lineup Tuesday.

“Maybe tomorrow, probably Tuesday for sure,” he said.

LHP Matt Moore
(mid lower abdomen strain) said his bullpen Saturday went well.

“It was like back to normal,” he said. “(Saturday) was really, really good.”

Moore is scheduled to throw another bullpen Monday and a round of live BP on Thursday. He’s not sure when he will pitch in a game, but it could be next weekend.

1B Carlos Peña, who is being afforded more time to get ready, is scheduled to take live BP on Monday morning. Rays manager Joe Maddon said he expects Peña to play by Wednesday.

“I’ll play before that,” Peña said. “Wednesday seems too far.”

Also, RHP Kyle Farnsworth, who is only scheduled to make seven appearances this spring, and RHP Brandon Gomes (back) are scheduled to throw live BP on Monday morning to Peña, DH Luke Scott (shoulder), minor league catcher Mark Thomas and possibly OF Sam Fuld (wrist).

Maddon said he expects Scott and Fuld to play in games by the end of the week.
