ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have placed backup catcher Shawn Riggans on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis.

Team purchased the contract of catcher Michel Hernandez from Triple-A Durham.

The move was made after a 15-5 win over the New York Yankees on Monday night and is retroactive to April 10.

Hernandez will join the Rays on Tuesday. Riggans had appeared in one game, going 1-for-4 with a solo homer in a start last Thursday at Boston.
