  Does Blue Jays being over 60-man limit suggest more positive COVID-19 tests? Toronto originally announced a player pool with 58 names, so the addition of these four will put them over the limit. However, as Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi tweets, a team can exceed 60 players if exceptions need to be made due to positive COVID-19 tests. It’s likely, then, that the Jays either have had additional positives in the organization that will remove some players from the 60-man pool or that additional transactions are coming Thursday.

NFL will treat COVID-19 players as injured players

  NFL will treat COVID-19 players as injured players The NFL has a lot of issues that need to be resolved before training camp start. Here is the latest on the NFL’s efforts to finalize a new setup for the impending COVID-19-altered season. A key takeaway from Friday’s NFLPA conference call: contracts relating to the coronavirus. Once teams report to camp, players who test positive for the virus will be treated the same way — contractually speaking — as injured players, Albert Breer of SI.com tweets. They will be paid.

The Padres say they're sending him to Class A Lake Elsinore (Calif.) to get some extra rest. To some, that might be code for manipulating his major league service time, but he It's not uncommon for teams to limit the workload of young pitchers , especially those who have had major injuries in the past.

Cordero, 25, has hit .240/.306/.431 with 10 home runs and 29 RBI over 273 plate appearances over parts of the past three seasons. He put up impressive numbers at Triple-A El Paso in 2017 but he hasn’t quite translated the success to the majors yet.

Bolaños, 23, made his major league debut last year. He struggled in his 19 2/3 innings of work, yielding 13 runs on 17 hits and 12 walks with 19 strikeouts. MLB Pipeline rated him the No. 16 prospect in the Padres’ system.
