Mateo (COVID-19) could be activated ahead of Monday's game against the Rockies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Both Mateo and Jurickson Profar (COVID-19) were spotted playing catch on the field prior to Monday's matchup, and manager Jayce Tingler stated that he's hopeful both players will return from the injured list in time for the series opener. The team has yet to make an official announcement on Mateo's status.
Mateo (COVID-19) was a close contact of Fernando Tatis, who tested positive for the virus Tuesday, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports. Unless he tested positive himself, Mateo figures to return in a few days if he can produce negative tests.
Mateo was placed on the injured list Tuesday due to health and safety protocols. The extent of his stay on the IL will depend on COVID-19 test results. Mateo has been a top pinch-hitting option for the Padres this season, having recorded just one plate appearance in 13 of his 22 games thus far.
