Rays Sign Free Agent Burrell To 2-Year Deal Worth $16 Million

Former Phillies slugger Pat Burrell agreed today to a two-year contract with Tampa Bay that will pay him $16 million, a deal that is now official after he completed a physical in St. Petersburg.

He’ll probably be used at DH and should add pop to a lineup that needs it. 150 strikeouts? Bring it.

Oh. Burrell resides in Clearwater, FL (where I grew up).

Here’s the batting order:

1. Akinori Iwamura, 2B
2. Carl Crawford, LF
3. B.J. Upton, CF
4. Carlos Pena, 1B
5. Evan Longoria, 3B
6. Pat Burrell, DH
7. Dioner Navarro, C
8. Gabe Gross/Fernando Perez, RF
9. Jason Bartlett, SS

Not bad.
