Kelly Shoppach to the 15-Day Disabled List: John Jaso Recalled from Durham


Per @TBORays

Kelly Shoppach was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 11th with a right knee sprain. This  explain Dioner Navarro's presence in the lineup versus a lefty in Brian Matusz tonight. John Jaso was recalled from Durham.

Jaso provides a serviceable left-handed bat with good on-base skills. There have been some concerns over his defensive ability. The twenty-six year-old is in his third season at Durham where he has posted a slash line of .271/.356/.396. I would expect to see him in the lineup tomorrow for the day game, but I'd expect Navarro to handle the bulk of the catching duties. Get well Shoppach!

In other news, the Rays made the signing of Cuban defector, Leslie Anderson official. It took nearly a month before the signing was confirmed, presumable due to visa issues. Anderson will report to extended spring training.
