The Tampa Bay Rays are trading third baseman Evan Longoria to the San Francisco Giants, according to multiple reports.

Longoria has five years remaining on a six-year, $100 million contract that also includes a seventh-year club option.

The Rays will be getting infielder Christian Arroyo, minor league pitchers Matt Krook and Stephen Woods and must take on the last year of outfielder Denard Span's contract. He will earn $9 million.

The 32-year-old Longoria is a three-time All-Star who has spent his entire 10-year career with the Rays and in many ways was the face of the franchise. He helped lead the team to a World Series appearance in 2008.

He won Rookie of the Year honors in 2008 and has also earned three Gold Gloves.

Longoria hit .261 with 20 homers and 86 RBIs last season. He has played at least 156 games in each of the past five seasons.

The Tampa Bay Times first reported the trade.
