Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Panik will likely be reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, when Miami's roster expands from 26 to 28 men, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Since Panik is on the COVID-19 IL, the Marlins may need to remove a player from the 40-man roster to facilitate a spot for the veteran utility man, even though nobody will have to be optioned off the active roster. Panik was placed on the COVID-19 IL on Aug. 13, but despite having not completed a minor-league rehab assignment, the 30-year-old looks to be healthy at this point.
