08:17 AM ET 08.23 | Delmon Young's eighth-inning double, one that had B.J. Upton chasing the ball all the way into the wall Monday night, changed the game. It might also be the hit that impacts the remainder of the Rays' season, since Upton injured his right shoulder trying to make the catch and should miss tonight's game with the Tigers and maybe more with what was termed a right shoulder strain. Not that Upton has been setting the pace for the Rays offense. Without him Desmond Jennings will play center field and Sam Fuld will see more time in left field. But the Rays will lose a power bat and some speed. "I don't think it's anything too serious," said Upton, who agreed with the team's assessment that he is "day-to-day."

This is pretty bad for the Rays. Shoulder strain shouldn't keep him from hitting.

They won't miss his .227 BA. They don't lose defense with Jennings in center and Fuld in left. All in all ... Meh.
