Stiff back lands Rays DH Luke Scott on 15-day DL
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 RBIs in 51 games this season.
The Rays plan to announce a corresponding move on Friday.
