Indians’ Reyes cleared
CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland outfielder Franmil Reyes was cleared by the team’s medical staff to return to the field after being isolated for attending a party over the July 4 weekend.
The Indians kept Reyes away from Progressive Field after he attended a holiday gathering without wearing a mask. The Indians learned of Reyes’ off-field actions on a social media post.
Manager Terry Francona said Reyes was re-tested and now can participate in the team’s training camp.
Also, Indians outfielder Delino DeShields Jr., who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, is traveling to Cleveland after he had one negative test. He will be tested again when he arrives.
“He was obviously excited. Said he was planning on traveling like the Michelin Man today through the airport,” Francona said.
DeShields is in his first season with the Indians, who acquired him in December from Texas in the trade involving ace Corey Kluber.
