Peralta to DL, Beliveau recalled



UPDATE, 5:57: Peralta was sent back to St. Petersburg to be seen by team physician Dr. Michael Reilly, and to have bloodwork done to confirm that he has the chikungunya virus. Governmental health departments and the CDC are tracking such cases. The virus is not contagious nor treatable, with the symptoms - fever, tiredness, achiness and rash - lasting 7-10 days.

DEVELOPING: The Rays placed RHP Joel Peralta on the disabled list as he deals with the tiredness and achiness from the chikungunya virus, which he believes he contracted when bitten by a mosquito during the All-Star break in the Dominican Republic.

LHP Jeff Beliveau was called up from Triple-A for the fifth time this season. Beliveau has a 1.50 ERA for the Bulls with 11 saves, striking out 51 in 36 innings.
