The Phillies activated Scott Kingery (COVID-19) off the 10-day injured list.
The 26-year-old dealt with symptoms and got pretty sick after testing positive. However, the good news is he's ready to go for Opening Day. Kingery has an intriguing power/speed combo and is eligible at multiple positions on most fantasy sites.
Scott Kingery cleared COVID-19 protocols and reported to Phillies' camp on Saturday.
Kingery had a tough bout with the virus, and probably won't be able to play everyday to start the season. Kingery has the prospect pedigree and the power/speed combination to be a solid fantasy option, but an keep an eye out for how the Phillies use him over the next couple weeks.
Scott Kingery says he contracted COVID-19 about a month ago but is completely recovered now.
Kingery told NBC Sports Philadelphia that he first felt symptoms on June 11th. “I know five or six people who had it and every single person was affected differently," Kingery said. "Some had a sore throat, really bad. I never had a sore throat. Some were asymptomatic the whole way. I was not.” The good news is he's feeling better and has returned 1-of-2 negative tests needed to join team workouts.
Matt Breen reports that Scott Kingery and three other Phillies are confirmed to have been placed on the COVID-19 IL.
Kingery, Hector Neris, Tommy Hunter, and Ranger Suarez were all placed on the injured list this week. The team did not announce was it was for, which made it easy to speculate. It is important to remember that this doesn't mean any of them have contracted the virus. It could simply mean they are showing symptoms or have had contact with an infected person.
The Phillies placed Scott Kingery on the 10-day IL on Wednesday with an undisclosed injury.
Kingery was in line to be the Phillies' starting 2B going into the season. It's unclear what the injury is, but with the state of everything and the inability to disclose a specific diagnosis, it's easy to speculate. Kingery will look to make sure his IL stint is only 10 days, so he can still be ready for Opening Day.
