The Yankees activated Luis Cessa (COVID-19) off the injured list Wednesday morning.
Cessa missed the first two weeks of the season following a positive COVID-19 test. He'll rejoin the team prior to Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Luis Cessa (COVID-19) remains at the Yankees alternate training site.
The good news is Cessa is getting ready to go. He threw a 40-pitch bullpen on Saturday and could be game ready this week. He's still unsure when he might rejoin the team, however.
Luis Cessa remains on the COVID-19 injured list and is not part of the Yankees' initial 30-man roster according to the team's website.
Cessa returned to the team Saturday after clearing intake protocol, but he has yet to be removed from the injured list and is not part of the Opening Day bullpen. The right-hander threw a 31-pitch bullpen session Monday that reportedly went well, so he's likely close to being game-ready.
Luis Cessa (illness) appears to be headed to New York to rejoin the Yankees, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.
Cessa was placed on the 10-day injured list July 8 as a result of testing positive for COVID-19, though he was reportedly asymptomatic. The 28-year-old righty will have to be cleared once he arrives and does not look like he will be ready for Opening Day.
Luis Cess (illness) is now asymptomatic and "feels really good," but he must produce two negative COVID-19 test results before reporting to camp, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
Cessa tested positive for COVID-19 last week and was showing mild symptoms, but he appears to be trending toward full clearance. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates concerning the 28-year-old to see if he will be ready for Opening Day on July 23.
