Pat Burrell To Receive Cortisone Injection; Carl Crawford Expected Back Tomorrow

Good news on both fronts for the Tampa Bay Rays and injured stars Carl Crawford and Pat Burrell. Both will miss tonight's game, but could be available late in the game. In CC's case, his shoulder is still sore from his diving catch last night, but he should be able to run if needed tonight with an eye on returning to the lineup tomorrow.

Pat Burrell is also available to pinch hit tonight, but will receive a cortisone injection in his neck tomorrow and miss at least the next two games according to Marc Lancaster.  Willy Aybar will man the DH position tonight while Ben Zobrist will roam left field in Crawford's absense. Pretty good news on both.
