Rays place Wigginton on DL
NEW YORK -- The Tampa Bay Devil Rays placed All-Star pitcher
Scott Kazmir and infielder Ty Wigginton on the 15-day disabled list
Kazmir went on the DL, retroactive to July 24, with soreness in
his left shoulder. Wigginton has a broken bone in his left hand.
The Devil Rays also recalled left-hander J.P. Howell from
Triple-A Durham. Howell will start Tuesday against Detroit in
Wigginton was injured when he was hit by a pitch from Shawn
Chacon in the fourth inning of Saturday's 19-6 victory over the New
York Yankees. He will see team orthopedist Dr. Koco Eaton on Monday
for further evaluation.
Tampa Bay did not immediately fill Wigginton's spot on the
roster and played Sunday's game against the Yankees one man short
on the bench. Tampa Bay lost 4-2.
