Rays' Upton leaves with shoulder strain

BY foxsports • August 22, 2011

Tampa Bay Rays center fielder B.J. Upton is day to day after running into the wall and straining his right shoulder.

Upton left Monday night's game against Detroit in the eighth inning with the injury. He was hurt chasing Delmon Young's double.

''I just kind of overextended the right arm,'' Upton said. ''It mostly went numb and it started to hurt a little bit.''

Upton's injury is not thought to be serious, but he is expected to sit out Tuesday's game.
