Evan Longoria definitely won't let a swollen right hand keep him out of the lineup. Maybe.

Longoria, who was hit in the hand by a pitch Thursday in a intrasquad game, was held out of the lineup Saturday and was expected to take a seat again Sunday. But he won't be out any longer than that.

He kinda, sorta 100 percent guaranteed it when asked Sunday morning.

"Probably Tuesday, for sure," Longoria said, according to a tweet by Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

There you have it. He's probably, for sure, absolutely, possibly going to play Tuesday.

Longoria is a popular early pick for 2012 American League MVP. He'd probably agree, for sure.
