ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Devil Rays shut down center fielder Rocco Baldelli's rehabilitation because of soreness.
Baldelli was shut down after sitting out Class-A Vero Beach's game Wednesday. Baldelli has felt soreness since his rehab stint began August 18.
Baldelli said before his rehab that trainers have been helping him change his running mechanics in an attempt to avoid aggravating leg injuries.
Manager Joe Maddon said Baldelli will be reevaluated Monday, and there is no time table on his return to action.
``We're being cautious about the whole thing,'' Maddon said. ``We're just concerned with this overall body soreness.''
Maddon said he believes Baldelli's soreness is due to the change in his running mechanics.
's no need to.''
Baldelli, who's been on the DL since May 17 because of a hamstring injury, started two games at designated hitter, going 0-for-5 at the plate.
