Jimenez retired all four batters he faced in a 14-pitch relief appearance in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Royals. Since being reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Jimenez has come on to deliver two perfect outings out of the bullpen. He'll remain part of the bridge to closer Michael Fulmer during the final week of the regular season.
Jimenez (illness) will be reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Jimenez recently reported to Triple-A Toledo to work out, but he'll be able to rejoin the major-league bullpen without making a rehab appearance. Across three appearances in September prior to testing positive for COVID-19, the right-hander allowed three runs in 2.2 innings.
Jimenez (illness) has reported to Triple-A Toledo to resume working out, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Jimenez tested positive for COVID-19 in early September, but he'll now begin building back up with the minor-league club. The right-hander will require at least one rehab appearance before he's activated, but it's not yet clear when he'll pitch for Toledo.
Jimenez (illness) landed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday. The move was an expected one after it was revealed that Jimenez had tested positive for the virus Monday. He'll now be out for at least 10 days.
The Tigers announced Monday that Jimenez tested positive for COVID-19, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Along with Jimenez, bench coach George Lombard tested positive for the virus, despite both having been vaccinated. It's unclear if the Tigers have a player readily available to take Jimenez's spot on the 28-man active roster for Monday's game in Pittsburgh, so the team could wait until Tuesday before placing Jimenez on the COVID-19 injured list. Jimenez will need to complete a quarantine period of at least 10 days and test negative for the virus before he's eligible to rejoin the Tigers.
