The Colorado Rockies will be without manager Bud Black, first base coach Ron Gideon and several players for Friday night’s game due to COVID-19 contact tracing protocols, the team announced.

Colorado placed right-handed pitcher Yency Almonte, right-handed pitcher Jhoulys Chacin, outfielder Yonathan Daza and right-handed pitcher Antonio Senzatela on the injured list.

Senzatela was slated to start Friday night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Chi Chi Gonzalez will get the start in his place.

Bench coach Mike Redmond will assume managerial duties and Major League Data & Game Planning Coordinator Doug Bernier will serve as the first base coach.

The Rockies also recalled left-handed pitcher Ben Bowden, outfielder Sam Hilliard and right-hander Antonio Santos from Triple-A Albuquerque, and have selected the contract of left-handed pitcher Zac Rosscup as a replacement player.
