Red Sox activate Bogaerts from COVID-19 IL
Bogaerts hasn't played since being pulled off the field on Aug. 31 following his positive test. He's one of multiple players who contracted the virus during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak inside the Red Sox clubhouse.
The 28-year-old is hitting .298/.366/.501 with 20 homers and 70 RBIs in 124 games this season.
Both Sale and infielder Jonathan Arauz were placed on the COVID IL on Friday. Arauz - the 13th Red Sox player lost to the outbreak - has repeatedly tested negative but is still experiencing symptoms and went on the IL as a precaution, according to Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic.
The Red Sox also activated pitcher Darwinzon Hernandez from the IL and selected reliever Kaleb Ort from Triple-A Worcester. Reliever Austin Davis was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding move.
