The Rays are talking to free agent Pat Burrell about coming to Tampa to fill their DH spot. Tampa Bay has considered several possibilities for either outfielder or DH, including Bobby Abreu, Jason Giambi, Milton Bradley, Garrett Anderson and Ken Griffey Jr. but Burrell looks like a real possibility for them.

The Rays are looking to enhance their offense, and the righthanded-hitting Burrell hit 33 home runs and has 86 RBIs with a .250 batting average for the World Champion Phillies, who beat the Rays in the World Series. Burrell originally sought a three-year deal, but in a tough outfield/DH market he might have to settle for a one-year deal. Burrell's outfield defense has slipped in recent years, but the Rays are mostly looking for offense.
