Madison Bumgarner Arizona Diamondbacks

Madison Bumgarner (P) AZ - Jul. 03

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742325

Bumgarner didn't work out with the Diamondbacks on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bumgarner is still waiting for clearance from the league's COVID-19 test protocols, so he was part of a group of players that wasn't present for Friday's workouts. The results from his test are still unknown, and it's unclear when the southpaw will join the team.

Charlie Blackmon Colorado Rockies

Charlie Blackmon (OF) COL - Jul. 03

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742322

Blackmon (illness) won't be available for the Rockies when camp starts Saturday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Blackmon tested positive for COVID-19 in late June along with teammates Phillip Diehl and Ryan Castellani, but he apparently hasn't cleared the league's protocol and won't be able to join the team for the start of camp. It's unclear whether he is still showing symptoms or how much extra time he'll need to recover.

Yordan Alvarez Houston Astros

Yordan Alvarez (DH) HOU - Jul. 03

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742304

Alvarez (knee) didn't join the Astros for their workouts in Houston on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Manager Dusty Baker said he couldn't say why Alvarez was unavailable due to "league mandates," so it sounds as though his absence is unrelated to the lingering knee issues that he battled before play was paused in March. It's not clear when he's expected to return.

Archie Bradley Arizona Diamondbacks

A fascinating run of comments, Peter. None more so than Archie Bradley.

I'm seeing that he had a 1.71 ERA and 1.07 WHIP Post All-Star.

Another interesting split.

Post All-Star a 0.78 G0/AO. Before that 1.41.
