ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Devil Rays placed backup catcher Shawn Riggans on the 15-day disabled list Monday with an injured right elbow and purchased the contract of catcher Raul Casanova from Triple-A Durham.
Riggans, recalled from Durham May 24 when catcher Josh Paul went on the DL with a strained left elbow, went 1-for-10 with two RBIs in three games.
Casanova hit .258 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 29 games at Durham. He has played all or parts of seven seasons in the majors, with the last stint coming with the Chicago White Sox in 2005.
To make room for Casanova on the 40-man roster, minor league left-handed pitcher Chris Seddon was designated for assignment. He was with Double-A Montgomery.
