PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Phillies placed shortstop Didi Gregorius on the COVID-related injured list on Friday.
Bench coach Rob Thomson said the move was taken as a precaution and did not indicate what caused the decision.
Manager Joe Girardi missed the game to attend his daughter’s college graduation.
Gregorius is hitting .250 with two home runs and 14 RBIs this season. The Phillies recalled catcher Rafael Marchan from the alternate site in Allentown, Pennsylvania before Friday’s game against the Mets.
