Burrell on DL with neck strain

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Tampa Bay Rays placed designated hitter Pat Burrell on the 15-day disabled list yesterday due to a neck strain.

The move is retroactive to May 11, and Rays manager Joe Maddon said he doesn't expect it to be an "extended DL" stay.

Burrell hasn't ruled out returning next week.

The former Phillies leftfielder is hitting .250, with just one home run and 17 RBI in 108 at-bats.
