Josh Naylor placed on COVID-19 IL

Josh Naylor was placed on the COVID-19 IL on Friday. Richie Palacios was recalled from Triple-A to take Naylor's place on the roster.

Fantasy Impact

The Guardians are dealing with a significant COVID-19 outbreak which led to the cancellation of their game against the White Sox on Thursday. It's unclear yet if Naylor had a positive test, but it seems likely given how many other members of the team have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Stays on the IL can last from as little as a day to well more than a week, so managers rostering Naylor will need to be patient.

Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor had a huge night in a 12-9 win over the White Sox in 11 innings on Monday. Naylor went 3-for-5 with two homers, a walk, and eight RBI in the comeback win.

Naylor not only had a huge night, but he also played the hero on two occasions. His ninth-inning grand slam tied the game at 8-8 sent the game into extra innings. He wasn't done there, however, as he swatted a three-run homer in the top of the 11th to give Cleveland a 12-9 lead and the eventual win. Naylor is on a tear at the plate, hitting .338 with four homers, nine runs, and 21 RBI over 68 at-bats. He needs to be picked up across all fantasy formats going forward.
