Angels' Matt Duffy: Nearing rehab assignment

Duffy (back) will begin a rehab assignment next week, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Duffy has been out with lower-back spasms since late June. His late-July move to the 60-day injured list means he can't return until near the end of August, so his rehab assignment won't be a particularly brief one.

Angels' Matt Duffy: Resumes baseball activities

Duffy has progressed to light baseball activities but is being conservative with his recovery in hopes that his back spasms don't flare up, per MLB.com. Angels head athletic trainer Mike Frostad indicated July 15 that Duffy has been able to play catch and swing a bat, but the veteran infielder hasn't yet started a rehab assignment. He last played June 26 before departing with what was later diagnosed as lower back spasms. Duffy slashed .261/.308/.291 with no homers, seven runs and five RBI over 143 plate appearances before landing on the IL.

Angels' Matt Duffy: Moves to COVID-19 IL

The Angels placed Duffy on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Duffy was initially in line to start at first base Sunday against White Sox southpaw Dallas Keuchel, but the lefty-hitting Jared Walsh was instead a late addition to the lineup after Duffy was scratched. The Angels haven't indicated whether Duffy's placement on the COVID-19 IL was the result of a positive test or due to contact-tracing concerns, but he'll head into isolation until the team gets more clarity on the matter. Jack Mayfield was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake to provide an extra option off the bench while Duffy is on the IL.
