Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez will miss at least 10 more days following a positive COVID-19 test on Tuesday, according to Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo.

Hernandez, 28, has mild symptoms that are improving, Montoyo said, and will quarantine. He had been on the COVID-19 list since Friday after having had close contact with someone outside the organization who had tested positive.

Hernandez is coming off the best of his five previous big-league seasons, having slashed .289/.340/.579 in 50 games with 16 home runs and 34 RBIs in 2020.

In his seven games this season, Hernandez is batting .207 with a home run and two RBIs.

The Blue Jays were set to host the New York Yankees in the second game of a three-game series on Tuesday night.
