The Tampa Bay Rays have placed designated hitter Luke Scott on the 15-day disabled list because of back stiffness.
The move, retroactive to June 9, was announced after the Rays' 9-6 loss to the New York Mets on Thursday.
Scott has made just one pinch-hit appearance over the past eight games. He is hitting .220 with nine homers and 35 RBI in 51 games this season.
The Rays plan to announce a corresponding move on Friday.
