Stammen's placement on the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday was the result of him experiencing flu-like symptoms, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Since Stammen hasn't tested positive for the virus and was merely placed on the IL as a precaution, he'll be eligible to rejoin the Padres before the season ends Sunday. In 65 appearances (four starts) spanning 85.2 innings this season, Stammen has gone 6-3 with seven holds, one save and a 2.94 ERA.
