Rays put Niemann on DL

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Jeff Niemann was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a small fracture in his right fibula.

He suffered the injury during Monday's 7-1 win against Toronto when he took a line drive off his leg from Adam Lind in the first inning.

Niemann, who could be out four to six weeks, is 2-3 with a 3.38 earned run average in seven starts this season.

The Rays also recalled right-handed pitcher Josh Lueke from Triple-A Durham.
