MILWAUKEE — Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks was scratched just minutes before his start on Tuesday against the Brewers. According to the team, Hendricks was not feeling well and made the decision to postpone his start out of an abundance of caution.
The Hendricks news came just hours after the team placed infielder Matt Duffy on the COVID-19 related injured list. The team announced that bullpen coach Chris Young tested positive for COVID-19 and placed three players on the COVID-19 related injured list on Monday.
Infielder Ildemaro Vargas was recalled from the alternate site as the team’s replacement player.
