BOSTON – Den red Sox placed prisoner Christian Vazquez and infielder Jonathan Arauz on the COVID-19 injury list Tuesday, joins the catcher Kevin Plaweckiwhich was placed at COVID IL on Monday.

On Monday, Plawecki and two unnamed employees tested positive for COVID-19, prompting the Red Sox to call Connor Wong from Triple-A Worcester in case of emergency.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Vazquez and Arauz have been vaccinated, allowing them to return to play faster after being tested negative.

“This is the world we live in. It’s very different from ’20 and last year,” Cora said. “I have been in a hotel for several days because one of my children tested positive. We made some adjustments, for example on the road, we want to go from three buses to five buses. We want to protect our families, our organization and the group. “

After Vazquez landed on IL, Wong was the only catcher on the Red Sox list before recalling Ronaldo Hernandez from Worcester. In the corresponding move, the Red Sox placed the left-handed player Rich Hill on the death / family medicine emergency list. Hill, who threw 4 2/3 innings in Monday’s loss to Minnesota twinswill be on the list for at least three days and no more than seven.

To replace Arauz and Vazquez on the list, Red Sox reliever called Tyler Danish and infielder Rob Refsnyder.

Vazquez has hit .208 through his first seven games of the season. He beat his first home run in 2022 against the Twins on Monday.
