Warren was activated off the COVID-19 injured list Monday. Warren has been out since late August. He was cleared to return to the team nearly two weeks ago but has been limited to simulated games since then. He's now ready for game action, with Cooper Criswell heading to the minors to clear a spot in the bullpen.
The Angels plan to have Warren toss one more simulated game early in the week before reinstating him from the COVID-19 injured list, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. After completing a 17-pitch sim game earlier this weekend, Warren initially looked on track to rejoin the Angels' active roster ahead of Monday's series opener with Houston. Instead, the Angels will delay his return by a few days and have him get stretched out a little more by throwing a second sim game. Once reinstated, Warren should factor into the setup mix for Los Angeles after he struck out 10 over nine scoreless innings across his last six appearances with the big club before landing on the COVID-19 IL in late August.
Warren (undisclosed) isn't expected to be activated until at least Monday, per MLB.com. Manager Joe Maddon had previously indicated that Warren could return Sunday against Oakland, but the right-hander is now likely to remain on the injured list until the team's series opener against Houston on Monday, at the earlier. Warren has been out due to COVID-19 protocols since Aug. 25.
Warren (undisclosed) said Tuesday that he's been throwing bullpens and is expected to face live hitters within the next few days before being activated during the upcoming homestand, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Warren rejoined the Angels last week after spending nearly two weeks on the COVID-19 injured list. The right-hander has been getting his arm back in shape, and based on his update, he could be activated during the upcoming weekend series against Oakland. Once reinstated, Warren will resume his major-league campaign with a 1.69 ERA and 17:4 K:BB.
Warren (COVID-19 protocols) is back with the Angels but hasn't yet been activated, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Warren recently spent 10 days in Baltimore while on the COVID-19-related injured list, but he has apparently cleared protocols and is now back with the club. Fellow pitchers Reid Detmers and Jose Marte also recently rejoined the team after landing on the COVID-19-related IL, but it isn't clear when any of the trio will be activated.
