MLB One more victim Pirates Pitcher is affected by Covid 19

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced today Monday that they placed the right Chad kuhl on the Covid-19-related injured list and selected the right-handed pitcher’s contract Shea spitzbarth in a corresponding move.

Kuhl, 28, has tested positive for Covid-19, according to the Pirates, so he will be out of the game for a minimum of 10 days under this year’s health and safety protocols. The right-hander has been a useful starter for the Bucs, pitching a 4.43 ERA in 67 innings this year:

The 26-year-old Spitzbarth will make his MLB debut the first time he enters a game with the Pirates. He had spent his entire professional career with the Dodgers prior to the 2021 season, joining the organization as an undrafted free agent in 2015. Generally speaking, he has struggled in the upper youth ranks, at least through the 2021 season.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
