"He has a bursitis problem that requires attention quickly," Maddon said before the AL East-leading Rays played second-place Boston. "It may be up to a four-week gig depending on the severity."

As Maddon spoke before the game, he said he thought Riggans might have already been in surgery.

Riggans had been listed as day-to-day, playing only once in the last six games. He has started 38 games this season and is batting .222 with six home runs and 24 RBIs.
