Almonte (COVID-19 injured list) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday at the Rockies' spring training facility in Arizona, the Associated Press reports.

After being placed on the COVID-19 IL on July 16, Almonte has seemingly cleared all health and safety protocols, so he's now in the process of ramping up again following his brief shutdown. Assuming Almonte checks out fine following Tuesday's bullpen session, the Rockies could have him pitch in a simulated game or head out on a brief minor-league rehab assignment before activating him. Almonte has struggled mightily this year, though, posting a 10.67 ERA and 1.93 WHIP across 27 innings out of the Colorado bullpen.
