Rays place Shoppach on DL
The move was announced Tuesday and is retroactive to April 11.
The 29-year-old Shoppach has appeared in four games this season. He's batting .250.
The Rays filled his spot on the roster by recalling catcher John Jaso from Triple-A Durham. Jaso appeared in five games with Tampa Bay in 2008 and was 4 for 11 in three games with Durham this season.
