Scott on the DL with oblique strain, Ramos recalled to help bullpen

ST. PETERSBURG The Rays placed designated hitter Luke Scott on the 15-day disabled list today with a mild oblique strain.
Left-hander Cesar Ramos was recalled from Triple A Durham to take Scott’s spot on the roster and add a fresh arm to a bullpen that picked up 6 1/3 innings in Friday’s 4-3, 14-inning victory against the Mariners.
Scott heads to the DL for the second time in as many months. He missed 17 games in June with back stiffness.
Scott said he injured himself during the ninth inning Friday when he tried to check his swing during an at-bat that ended with a line drive to left field. He was replaced in the 10th inning by Hideki Matsui and said after the game that he didn’t think the injury was serious.
But an MRI this morning told a different story.
“It’s a tough injury to play through,” Scott said.
He also said he expects to return within 15 days, minor league rehab included.
