Arroyo is not starting Tuesday against the Orioles, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Arroyo appears to be behind Jose Iglesias on the depth chart, as he's out of the lineup again Tuesday despite appearing to have a favorable matchup with lefty Bruce Zimmermann taking the mound for Baltimore. With Iglesias being ineligible for the postseason roster, however, Boston will likely look to get Arroyo a start or two later this week in order to get him back into the flow of things. The infielder has had just four at-bats since returning from the COVID-19 IL last Wednesday.
Arroyo was activated from the COVID-19 list Tuesday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. The 26-year-old last played in the majors Aug. 26 prior to testing positive for COVID-19. The platoon player suffered more severe symptoms than his teammates and thus missed almost a month. Arroyo has posted a career-high six home runs and 25 RBI in 53 games this season. Jack Lopez was optioned to Triple-A Worcester in a corresponding move.
Arroyo (illness) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Arroyo began working out in Worcester early in the week, and he'll progress to minor-league game action Thursday. The 26-year-old has been out since he tested positive for COVID-19 in late August but should be able to rejoin the Red Sox as a depth option after a few rehab appearances.
Arroyo (illness) is working out with Triple-A Worcester and is expected to begin a rehab assignment within the next couple days, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Arroyo has been sidelined since testing positive for COVID-19 in late August, but he was cleared to rejoin the team for workouts last week and is close to being activated. The 26-year-old is expected to fill a depth role upon his activation, which should occur after he appears in a few rehab games with Worcester.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Arroyo (illness) rejoined the team for workouts Wednesday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. Arroyo is back in Boston after he completed a quarantine period and regained strength after being hit particularly hard by a case of COVID-19. Since Enrique Hernandez has beaten him back from the COVID-19 IL, Arroyo looks like he'll have to settle for a depth role upon returning, so the Red Sox may not rush activating him. Expect Arroyo to complete at least a few workouts and potentially head out on a minor-league rehab assignment before being reinstated from the IL.
