Arauz wasn't included on Boston's ALDS roster, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Arauz was on the roster for Tuesday's AL Wild Card Game but didn't appear in the contest. Danny Santana (illness) was added to the ALDS roster to serve as a utility man.
Arauz will be part of the Red Sox's wild-card roster, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Arauz will give the team added infield depth, though the Red Sox probably hope he doesn't wind up playing a significant role. In 155 career plate appearances across the last two seasons, he's hit just .219/.301/.343.
Arauz (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list and optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday. Arauz landed on the COVID-19 IL nearly two weeks ago, but he's now back to full health. The 23-year-old was initially sent down before his placement on the IL, so it's not surprising to see him head to Worcester. The infielder has slashed .234/.318/.356 with six home runs, 28 RBI, 27 runs and two stolen bases across 61 minor-league appearances this season.
Arauz was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Arauz was initially sent to Triple-A Worcester on Friday, but he'll instead land on the COVID-19 IL. The team is calling the move precautionary since the 23-year-old is experiencing symptoms but has continued to test negative. Once Arauz is activated, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sent down.
Arauz was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Arauz had started each of the last nine games for the Red Sox, but he'll head back to the minors after Xander Bogaerts (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday. The 23-year-old hit .167 with three home runs, two doubles, seven runs and six RBI in 12 games while filling in for the Red Sox during their recent COVID-19 outbreak.
