The Philadelphia Phillies placed right-handers Chase Anderson and David Hale on the COVID-related injury list Sunday.

To replace them on the active roster, the team reinstated right-handed closer Hector Neris from the paternity list and recalled left-hander Cristopher Sanchez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Anderson, 33, is 2-4 this season with a 7.34 ERA in 11 games (eight starts) with 29 strikeouts, 17 walks and seven home runs allowed in 38 innings.

Hale, 33, is 0-2 with a 5.64 ERA in 13 appearances (one start) with 18 strikeouts, eight walks and four homers allowed in 22 1/3 innings.

Neris went on the paternity list on Saturday and was expected to be away from the team for up to three days. The 31-year-old is 1-3 with a 1.96 ERA and nine saves in 24 games. He has struck out 27 batters and walked eight in 23 innings.

Sanchez, 24, has never pitched in the major leagues. He is 1-1 with a 3.74 ERA in six games (five starts) this season at Lehigh Valley.
