Neris was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Phillies initially didn't reveal the reason why Neris and three other players were placed on the injured list, but it's since been revealed that they're all on the COVID-19 injured list, rather than the regular 10-day injured list. That doesn't necessarily mean that any of them have caught the virus, however, as players can also be placed on the list simply for having had contact with someone who has since tested positive. With players' medical information being closely safeguarded in this area, it's not clear when Neris is expected to rejoin the team.
