Red Sox ' s Alex Verdugo : Declares self fully healthy. by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire. The Red Sox were hopeful Verdugo would begin swinging this past week, but the back injury continues to delay the outfielder. Verdugo remains without a timeline for his return, leaving his status for Opening Day as

Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that Verdugo (back) has not been able to progress as quickly as the team hoped because of the shutdown, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Two weeks ago, general manager Chaim Bloom addressed the media and said

When the Boston Red Sox acquired Alex Verdugo from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Mookie Betts and David Price trade, it was understood that the outfielder wouldn’t be ready for Opening Day.

Verdugo was recovering from a stress fracture in his lower back and didn’t even start swinging a bat until March.

But that was then, before a global pandemic pushed off the start of the 2020 Major League Baseball season indefinitely.

And with all that time to nurse his rehabilitation, the coronavirus was kind of a blessing in disguise for Verdugo.

“In a weird way, this whole COVID, all that, the extended time that it took, has done my body physically wonders,” Verdugo on Saturday told media, via MassLive’s Chris Smith.

  Baseball is coming back — but it’s going to very different The mini-season of 60 games, slated to start later this month, is going to be less fun, but it's the only baseball we have.But like everything else in our COVID-19 spring, no one really knows anything.

New Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo said on Monday that he is fully healthy and he will be ready for the season -- if there is one. Verdugo has used the delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic to rehab a stress fracture in his spine he already had when Boston acquired him from the Dodgers in

“Just getting through all the stuff. I think I could have been ready to play sooner. But it’s just one of those things, you take a certain amount of swings and it’s like, ‘All right, I still feel good but how sore am I after that?’ So that’s the biggest thing I’ve kind of noticed throughout the extra time I’ve had is just that I’m getting my body extra endurance.”

Verdugo feels so healthy, in fact, that he was ready to face Nathan Eovaldi and his 99 mph fastballs in a simulated game at Fenway Park.

“I told the manager (Ron Roenicke) I wanted to see velo,” Verdugo said. “Probably the first time I’ve seen any type of pitching for 10 months or something like that. It just so happened Nathan was going out there on the bump. Let’s say that yeah, I got welcomed real quick to good, old 99, 98 (mph). But the biggest thing for me today was just to kind of see the velo, see it out of his hand. See one of the most elite, best pitchers and really go from there. I took a full swing. I swung and missed and had no pain, no discomfort. So that was really reassuring.”

MLB will begin its shortened 60-game season July 23.

Basel indoor tournament is cancelled .
The Swiss Indoor tennis tournament in Basel, scheduled from October 24 to November 1, has been cancelled in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, the organisers announced Tuesday. "The ATP has officially approved the cancellation request from Basel, even though the tournament management had already declared in mid-June that it would be irresponsible and unrealistic to organise the event because of the medical, social and economic uncertainty linked to the situation," the organisers said in a statement. The organisers had said they believed a tournament with social distancing or behind closed doors was impractical.
