Matt JoyceHere's a new injury for you -- "post-injection soreness." That's what's keeping Tampa outfielder Matt Joyce out of Friday's game against the Orioles.

Joyce had a cortisone shot in his left shoulder in Los Angeles on Thursday after the shoulder had bothered him for two weeks. If you've never had a cortisone shot, you may not know it's a pretty big (as in diameter) needle and it burns for awhile after you get it. It can hurt for a couple of days, even though it feels like magic after that.

"We figured we had an off day and tried to take advantage of it," Joyce told reporters, including the Tampa Tribune's Roger Mooney. "Came in today and it was still really sore. It was sore from the shot, not from the injury. I don't know if you can call it an injury."

He said he could still pinch-hit on Friday and could be back in the lineup on Saturday.

Joyce had a cortisone shot in the shoulder in January.

The Rays do get Evan Longoria back after the third baseman missed three games with strep throat.
