ST. PETERSBURG - The Tampa Bay Rays have placed catcher John Jaso on the 15-day disabled list with right oblique strain, retroactive to July 10. To take his place on the active roster, catcher Jose Lobaton will be recalled tomorrow from Durham (AAA) and will be in uniform for tomorrow's game against Boston. In addition, the Rays will recall left-handed pitcher Jake McGee tomorrow from Durham. The Rays active roster had been at 24 players since outfielder Brandon Guyer was optioned to Durham following Sunday's game.

Jaso, 28, is batting .222 (40-for-180) with 12 doubles, three home runs and 17 RBI in 65 games this season. He has started 50 games at catcher and last appeared on Sunday at New York.

Lobaton, 26, was hitting .293 (54-for-184) with eight home runs, 31 RBI and a .410 on-base percentage in 54 games at Triple-A Durham. He had a two-day stint on the active roster for the Rays in April 2010 but did not appear in a game. He was recalled again on August 31 and immediately transferred to the 15-day disabled list with a right foot contusion, where he spent the remainder of the season. He appeared in seven games for the San Diego Padres in 2009, his only major league action to date. The Venezuelan native has a .257 career batting average over nine seasons in the minor leagues.

McGee, 24, started the season with the Rays and had a 5.14 ERA (7.0-IP, 4-ER) in 11 appearances before being optioned on May 1. Since then, he has gone 4-2 with a 2.70 ERA (33.1-IP, 10-ER) in 24 appearances at Durham, including a 0.77 ERA (11.2-IP, 1-ER) in save situations with nine saves in 10 opportunities.
