CLEVELAND – Another day, another player on the injury list.

That Detroit Tigers can not pause.

Right-hand replacement Will Vest was placed on the injury list before Friday’s series opener against the Cleveland Guardians at Progressive Field. The 26-year-old tested positive for COVID-19.

The vest must be left out for at least 10 days before attempting to produce the successive negative tests required to return.

“We think we’ve included it,” said manager AJ Hinch.

Will West enters mid-May with at least one strikeout in 10 of its 12 appearances in 2022.

Over the last few days, Hinch has been dealing with his own illness. He has taken several COVID tests, but his results remain negative. He spent Thursday’s day off in bed and did not sleep much last night.

“I feel useless,” Hinch said.

Hinch then announced that he will miss Friday’s game with a non-COVID illness, with bench coach George Lombard taking over his place as manager of the first of three games in Cleveland.
