Cubs reliever Kyle Ryan not at Summer Camp due to protocol 'technicalities'

Cubs reliever Kyle Ryan not at Summer Camp due to protocol 'technicalities'

Cubs reliever Kyle Ryan hasn’t arrived at Summer Camp yet due to a “process-based delay” that manager David Ross referred to as protocol "technicalities.”

Ryan has been working out on his own and throwing remotely. He threw a live batting practice session on Saturday and is scheduled to throw a bullpen on Tuesday. The Cubs said they hope he can join the team at camp by the end of the week.

Last week, Ross indicated no Cubs have tested positive for COVID-19. They're believed to be the only team, at least in the National League, with no positive tests.

Ryan is the Cubs bullpen's top lefty. Last season, he posted a 3.54 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 73 outings.
