DH. He will play OF if injuries decimate them, but otherwise he was signed to DH.

I'm not a believer. I have watched him play in Philly for the last 10 years or so and I don't expect serious stats from him in the Devil Rays lineup. Over the last few years he has had trouble reaching 30 HRs surrounded by a high octane lineup that out-hit the Devil Rays in the World Series. He was playing in a super friendly hitters' park and a lot of those HRs would have been flyouts in other parks.

Admittedly there is some upside- He had a nice spring, he knows how to take a walk, and he may hit better as a DH if he doesn't have to worry about fielding.

But I think he's one to pass on unless he really falls in your draft.

Just goes to show this guy doesnt know what he is talking about it, when he refers to them as the Devil Rays.

Ouch...I honestly think he sounded like a disappointed Philly fan...remember the hype that came with Burrell when he first arrived in Philly. He's a good player and will fit in nicely in "Tampa".
