Urshela (illness) could rejoin the Yankees prior to the end of the current series against the Red Sox that runs through Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Urshela was one of six confirmed positive cases for COVID-19 among the Yankees last week, but he's apparently tested negative now since he's traveling to meet the team in Boston. The 29-year-old should reclaim his role as the primary third baseman once he's cleared to return, but DJ LeMahieu and Tyler Wade should continue to fill in while he's sidelined.
Urshela is on the COVID-19 injured list after testing positive for the virus Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Urshela is one of six confirmed positive cases for the Yankees coming out of the All-Star break. He'll be out for at least 10 days and will need to clear the health and safety protocols before being able to rejoin the team. DJ LeMahieu figures to see more action at third base in Urshela's absence, which should lead to more opportunities at the keystone for Rougned Odor and Tyler Wade.
Urshela is going through the league's COVID-19 protocols Thursday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.
The Yankees already had three players test positive for the virus and land on the COVID injured list earlier in the day, and Urshela, Aaron Judge and Kyle Higashioka could follow to the shelf if positive tests are confirmed. Thursday's matchup with the Red Sox has already been postponed due to the outbreak. Urshela will be away from the team for at least 10 days if he returns a positive result.

According to Boone, Urshela is merely tending to some soreness in the shin after he was struck by a pitch in the seventh inning of Tuesday's loss.
