As expected the Rays placed C Jose Lobaton on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to Friday) after tonight’s loss and purchased the contract of C Chris Gimenez from Triple A Durham.

Gimenez will start this afternoon against the Red Sox.

Lobaton suffered what is being called a sore right shoulder during Thursday’s game against the Tigers in Detroit.

“It’s not awful,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said of the injury, but Lobaton can’t throw.

Gimenez, who played two games for the Bulls, suffered a testicle contusion and has been on the 7-day Triple A disabled list this past week.
