Tampa Bay Rays place slugger Randy Arozarena on COVID-19 injured list

The Tampa Bay Rays on Friday introduced that outfielder Randy Arozarena has been positioned on the COVID-19 injured checklist. The announcement stated it was as a consequence of “shut contact” so it seems like he did not check constructive for the virus and it is a contact-tracing scenario. There is no such thing as a minimal stint on the injured checklist with regards to virus-related strikes, so it is completely doable Arozarena might be again very quickly, even on Saturday. 

As a corresponding transfer, the Rays referred to as up outfielder Jordan Luplow, who was acquired from Cleveland on commerce deadline day. 

Arozarena, 26, noticed his star rise final September and October, when he took the league by pressure and set information within the playoffs. He hit .377/.442/.831 in 20 playoff video games, accumulating 29 hits, three doubles, a triple, 10 homers, 14 RBI and 19 runs. 

Up to now this season, he is hitting .268/.344/.458 (128 OPS+) with 20 doubles, two triples, 16 homers, 52 RBI, 66 runs, 11 steals and a couple of.9 WAR in 99 video games. He is been actually sizzling of late, although, hitting .404 with 5 doubles, a triple, six homers and 11 RBI in his final 14 video games. 

On condition that and the actual fact the Rays have constructed a 1 1/2 recreation lead within the AL East, the timing of this stinks for Tampa Bay. Happily for them, the probability right here, assuming he hasn’t examined constructive, is he will not miss a lot time. 

The Rays on Friday night time start a nine-game street journey the place they’re going to face the Orioles, Red Sox and Twins. The Crimson Sox sequence is the large one, presumably, relying upon how this weekend goes for each groups, being a battle for first place. Final weekend, the Rays swept the Crimson Sox to seize first.
