Boston Red Sox: Yairo Muñoz is the latest player to land on the COVID-related IL

The Red Sox have a serious COVID-19 problem happening within the clubhouse. The team announced that Yairo Muñoz is the latest player to test positive for the virus.

Muñoz was recently called up by the Sox after Kiké Hernández was the first player to test positive for COVID-19.

During last nights loss to the Rays, the Red Sox pulled All-Star shortstop off the field. This was after they learned Bogaerts tested positive for the virus. Muñoz becomes the seventh player on the team to now miss time due to the virus.

“Boggie is such a consistent presence,” Red Sox slugger Kyle Schwarber said after the loss. “It’s unfortunate. I think your biggest concern is just the health of the individuals. This is no joke.”

Manager Alex Cora was on WEEI’s Merloni and Fauria on Wednesday afternoon. He stated that Muñoz was the latest player to test positive. Cora also added that Ryan Brasier and Danny Santana will join the club. In addition Team USA silver medalist Jack Lopez is on the taxi-squad.

Lopez could be the player to replace Muñoz on the big-league roster.

Muñoz has played five games with the Red Sox since his promotion. He is hitting .091 with one hit in 11 at-bats.

The Red Sox will turn to Chris Sale on Wednesday night to end the two-game losing streak to the Rays.
