ST. PETERSBURG -- Jeff Niemann (right shoulder soreness) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday night. Now the right-hander is scheduled to accompany the team to Texas to have a second opinion on his shoulder.
"I'm sure there's going to be tests involved to draw some conclusions," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "But that's where it's at right now."
Meanwhile, Luke Scott (right calf strain) said he ran on the underwater treadmill and he has hit off a tee the past two days.
"I'm feeling good," Scott said.
