Reds outfielder Nick Senzel has been cleared to return to the active roster today, he announced on his Twitter account. Infielder Mike Moustakas was also given the green light to resume play, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic adds on Twitter.
This is obviously great news for the Cincinnati organization, which was missing two key pieces of its anticipated roster. As The Athletic reported earlier, they had appealed a league determination of a lengthier period of absence after the duo had reported some symptoms potentially consistent with COVID-19 over the weekend.
Thankfully, it seems as if there’s no reason to worry that either of the two players has come down with the coronavirus. Both players’ symptoms have since resolved and obviously neither has recorded a positive test.
The Reds have now announced the moves. The team has created a necessary active roster spot by optioning backstop Tyler Stephenson.
The Chicago National League Ballclub will still win the game in Cincinnati tonight.
It’s all smiles in Chicago, until Ross points to Kimbrel.
Are you watching the game?
Huh?.. what was that?? Can you say that back here a little louder?? Couldn’t hear you!
Hey Lloyd Emerson how did that work out for you?
Don’t quit your day job…
12-6 says they don’t !
Must be cool to get test results back so fast
Tyler Stephenson looked good at the plate. Too bad they are optioning him.
He’s also the best catcher on the roster. Bell prob was behind sending him down. Dude is clueless
Hi, I’m baseball in 2020. Managers only fill out the lineup cards before the game starts. Roster decisions are made by baseball operations people. Thanks for your comment though
That definitely appears to be true in Los Angeles, where Dave Roberts enjoys the added perk of Andrew Friedman throwing him under the bus any time Dodgers FO decisions cost the teams critical postseason wins.
You got that right.. they should have hired Barry Larkin.. would be in much better shoes if so.
So it’s reported that Moose had food poisoning and Senzel had a cold. They tried to do the right thing and self report and the testing protocols are way over the top. Their replacements for those games went 0-20 and likely cost the Reds between 2-3 games of that 4 game losing streak. That’s bs and something needs to change or you’re going to see teams stop trying to do the right thing…
Cubs will not and did not win game, and were saved by a questionable triple play of embarrassment, could have been 14 or 15 runs, nice bullpen!!
