The Tampa Bay Rays have reached an agreement with outfielder Pat Burrell on a two-year, $16 million contract, SI.com has confirmed. Burrell had spent his entire nine-year career with the Philadelphia Phillies, which culminated in the team's World Series triumph over the Rays last October. Burrell batted .250 with 33 home runs and 86 RBIs in 2008, his fourth 30-home run season. A leftfielder in Philadelphia, Burrell is likely to be the designated hitter for the Rays.

Tampa Bay is unlikely to add another hitter from the list of players they had considered, including Ken Griffey Jr, Jason Giambi and Bobby Abreu
