Almonte (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday.

Almonte landed on the COVID-19 IL on July 16, but he threw a bullpen session in late July and recently made two rehab appearances at Triple-A Albuquerque. During his rehab outings, he allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one in two scoreless innings. The right-hander will serve as a late reliever once again, but he's unlikely to see many high-leverage chances since he's posted a 10.67 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 27 innings across 31 relief appearances this year.
