Steven Matz placed on COVID-related IL by Toronto Blue Jays

BOSTON -- Steven Matz was placed on the COVID-related injured list by the Toronto Blue Jays before Sunday's game against Boston, one day after the left-hander beat the Red Sox.

Matz (7-3) allowed one run and four hits in 5⅔ innings Saturday.

"He's still going through additional testing,'' manager Charlie Montoyo said. "The guys that were around him that are vaccinated came back negative, and that's good news.''

Right-hander Jeremy Beasley was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, a day after he was optioned.
