Rays designate Pat Burrell for assignment; select Hank Blalock

The Rays have designated DH Pat Burrell for assignment, and selected Hank Blalock from Triple-A Durham.

Burrell, who signed a two-year, $16 million deal before last season, had been a disappointment, with his struggles continuing this season (hitting .202). Blalock is expected to be at Tropicana Field around gametime.
