The Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday reinstated reliever Tyler Clippard from the injured list and shipped Miguel Aguilar to Triple-A Reno.

Manager Torey Lovullo confirmed last Tuesday that Clippard was put on the COVID-19 list and that the right-hander was experiencing symptoms.

The 36-year-old has been a bright spot in the D-backs bullpen with a 2.65 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 17 innings pitched this season. He is second on the team in saves this year with five, one behind since-traded Joakim Soria.

Aguilar, 29, has played nine games with the Diamondbacks this year and allowed five earned runs and six hits in 7.0 innings pitched. He has three strikeouts and four walks.

Arizona had recalled the left-handed Aguilar from Triple-A and sent pitcher Taylor Clarke down to Reno ahead of Clippard’s appointment to the COVID-19 reserve last week.

With the roster moves on Monday, the D-backs’ roster is capped at 40 players.

Arizona faces the Los Angeles Dodgers at 7:10 p.m. Listen on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
