SAN DIEGO (AP) — Right-hander Robert Dugger and left-hander Anthony Misiewicz were reinstated by the Seattle Mariners on Saturday, one day after they and two other relievers were placed on the COVID-19 injured list when the team reported a positive case in its traveling party.
“We’re fortunate to get those guys back in our bullpen. We’ll probably need them tonight,” manager Scott Servais said before Saturday’s game against the San Diego Padres. The Mariners lost the series opener 16-1 on Friday night.
“Obviously with the COVID issues we had yesterday, those guys have received vaccinations so they had to be out a day to make sure they were good. That test came back negative so they’re good to go and join our club.
“Again, every situation is a little bit different on the contact tracing and where guys are at, if they’ve been vaccinated or not. We were hoping they would be OK and we’re lucky to have them back.”
