ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays placed designated hitter Pat Burrell on the 15-day disabled list with a neck strain Sunday.
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.
Tampa Bay also reinstated reliever Jason Isringhausen from the 15-day disabled list. The right-hander, coming back from right elbow surgery, made a combined 10 rehab appearances between Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham.
