Wasn’t there some info a few weeks back about them being able to put players with COVID-19 in a vague/non-disclosed IR category? Could they give a misleading category like ‘back strain’? I’m curious whether it’s worth the squeeze to speculate when seemingly healthy players end up on the 10 day IR during an outbreak.

Danny Serafini
07-28-2020, 03:57 PM
There's no minimum length of stay on the COVID list, in theory you could bring somebody off it after one day, so if the team announces 10 day IL it's an actual injury, not COVID related.

There's no minimum length of stay on the COVID list, in theory you could bring somebody off it after one day, so if the team announces 10 day IL it's an actual injury, not COVID related.

I think you need 2 negative tests at least 24 hours apart so it would seem that would dictate the shortest time being at least 2 days (unless there was a negative test which was done after the positive test was done but before results came in for the positive.)

Danny Serafini
07-28-2020, 04:17 PM
I believe you can go on the COVID list without a positive test. If someone is showing symptoms and you want to remove them from the team you can place them on the list while they're being tested.

Bell sounded um sad or tired or something during the q and a session this afternoon.

Hopefully we can win today and make him feel better tomorrow.
Mahle is the projected starter, kind of crazy to say this, but this might be the biggest start of his career to date.

MikeS21

I don’t think we need to panic every time someone is not feeling 100%. Right now they are just being cautious. It is far better for a player to have a head cold or sore throat and be tested, than to dismiss it as non-virus. Feeling bad does not necessarily equal being infected with the virus.

I have extreme sinus issues and every time I reach for a tissue, everyone looks at me like I have the plague. I just tell them that if I truly have the COVID virus, then I have had the virus for the last twenty years. Believe me, the old sinuses are bad right now because it has been so dry and the recent rains and wind have kicked up the dust.

If any of these guys have Covid, and actually have symptoms, it will be a while before they are 100%. I believe this can affect you for a long time, way past the contagious period. It could eat up a lot of this season recovering. Especially in the current heat wave. Letís hope everyone has something else going on.

HRHRHR

When you have a pitcher that pounds the strike zone, a game plan to make him work results in you being down 0-2 every AB.

A pitcher throws a lot of pitches when he doesnít have the best control but induces swings and misses.

You need to adjust your game plan based on the type if pitcher you are facing.

They never tried it. Reed’s begun every year in the minors. Usually starting. Last year he was on track as a reliever then got hurt.

If Reds have room for Brooks Raley and Nate Jones they can finally give Reed a full shot.

Only a 60 game season, but keep running him out there. Has good stuff, seemingly.
