Shoppach leaves game with injury, should be okay for Saturday



UPDATED, 1:13: Shoppach told Maddon after the game that he was fine and could play Saturday if needed.

UPDATED, 10:54: The Rays said Shoppach left with right knee soreness and is day to day.

DEVELOPING: As if the Rays haven't had enough problems, C Kelly Shoppach left the game in the seventh inniing with an injury, possibly his knee.

Joel Peralta's pitch had gotten past Shoppach and bounced off the wall and Shoppach was apparently hurt as he played the carom and flipped the ball to Peralta, who tagged out Brent Morel. Shoppach was replaced by John Jaso.

Shoppach missed two months last season with a right knee injury.
