Rays Put McHugh On COVID IL

Prior to Wednesday’s game, the Rays placed reliever Collin McHugh on the COVID-related injured list.

The 33-year-old has not pitched since Saturday, when he earned the victory over Baltimore by tossing two scoreless innings of relief and striking out five.  This is the second time he has been on the injured list with the Rays this season, after missing 18 games in late April though early May with a lower back strain.

To take his place on the active roster, pitcher Chris Mazza was recalled from Triple-A Durham.
