The Cleveland Indians have reinstated Mike Clevinger and Zach Plesac after both pitchers were placed on the restricted list earlier this week for violating the team's and Major League Baseball's health and safety protocols.
Meisel added that Cleveland brass met afterward and made the decision to send both pitchers to the alternate site.
Cleveland announced Aug. 11 that it had placed Clevinger and Plesac on the restricted list. Both players were required to quarantine for three days and undergo precautionary coronavirus testing after they went out with friends in Chicago on Saturday night.
Per Tom Withers of the Associated Press, Clevinger didn't admit he was out with Plesac during a team meeting Sunday and flew back to Cleveland with the team and coaching staff before the organization found out he also violated the rules.
There's no indication when either Plesac or Clevinger could rejoin the 28-man roster.
