Before starting a two-game streak in Kansas City, the Cardinal made a series of roster moves that included promoting AAA Memphis’ Juan Ypez, with Edmundo Sosa appearing on the infected list with no designation but presumably linked to COVID.
Post-Dispatch baseball writer Rick Hamill writes of the football field in Kansas City, Missouri, that the Cardinals made the swap on Tuesday afternoon.
Cardinals assess the spread of the virus within their flight. The cardinal has five people who have shown symptoms of the virus and have tested positive for COVID-19. This group also includes three medical officers and one club host. The Cardinals intend to replace members of the medical team as long as necessary during a road trip to two cities.
The trip here will be shorter than expected. The finale of the Wednesday series was broadcast from 6:10 pm. Until 12:10 PM due to bad weather forecast here later Wednesday.
Yadier Molina woke up on Tuesday morning feeling ill, but the test result came back negative. It’s likely to pick up on Wednesday, Hummel reports.

The Cardinals also added left-wing Stephen Matz to the list of bereavement due to a death in his family. He was replaced on the roster by left-wing Bucky Naughton, who had just been selected in the AAA Memphis class on Sunday. He didn’t get out of St. Louis before he was called up to join the team.
The Yepees scored their ninth home game of the season during Tuesday’s game with Memphis in Memphis. It was upgraded after a few minutes. During his first 22 games of the season for the Redbirds, Yepez fought 0.279 with 651 hits and 26 RBI. The first starting player is the Cardinals Organizing Player of the Year.
Yepez was listed as the Cardinals in the Wild-Card playoff at Dodger Stadium but did not appear in the loss.
