Hernandez (illness) rejoined the Red Sox on Monday and could be activated from the COVID-19 injured list as soon as Tuesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Both Hernandez and relief pitcher Josh Taylor were cleared to join the team after completing quarantine periods upon landing on the COVID-19 injured list about a week and a half ago. Taylor could be activated from the IL ahead of Monday's series opener versus the Rays, but Hernandez will have to wait at least one more day to make his return to the lineup. Hernandez was able to complete a workout Monday, signaling that he's feeling well physically following his quarantine.
