The Tampa Bay Rays placed RHP Brandon Gomes on the 15-day disabled list Friday afternoon with a right lat strain and recalled RHP Josh Lueke from Triple A Durham.

Lueke has had a solid start to his season. In 13-2/3 innings over 10 games he has struck out 20 batters, walked three, allowed 11 hits and has a 1.32 ERA. He has six saves.

Lueke worked two innings and threw 29 pitches Thursday night against Syracuse, so it is unlikely he will be available Friday night against the San Diego Padres.
