Tampa Bay Rays DH Pat Burrell out with neck problem; Brignac may be on way



UPDATE, 1:04: Indications late Friday were that INF Reid Brignac would be called up from Triple-A, giving the Rays an extra position player (they have an open roster spot by optioning RHP Jeff Bennett to the minors) while a decision is made on how long Burrell might be out.

DEVELOPING: Tampa Bay Rays DH Pat Burrell left Friday's game when he had a recurrence of the neck problems that sidelined him earlier this season.

Manager Joe Maddon said they don't know how serious the situation is but Burrell will be re-evaluated on Saturday. He missed 29 games earlier this season.
