The Philadelphia Phillies placed third baseman Alec Bohm, right-handers Aaron Nola and Connor Brogdon and left-hander Bailey Falter on the COVID-related injured list Sunday morning.

Left-handers Damon Jones and Christopher Sanchez, right-hander Mauricio Llovera and infielder Nick Maton were recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Nola, 28, had been scheduled to start Sunday afternoon’s contest in Boston, the Phillies’ final game before the All-Star break. Instead, right-handed reliever Brandon Kintzler (2-1, 7.54 ERA) will serve as the opener against the Red Sox for the rubber match of the three-game series.

Nola is 6-5 with a 4.53 ERA in 18 starts this season, his seventh with Philadelphia. He has struck out 126 batters in 101 1/3 innings.

Bohm, 24, is batting .243 with six homers and 41 RBIs in 85 games in his second season with the Phillies. He played seven innings in Philadelphia’s 11-2 win against the Red Sox on Saturday before leaving the game, which manager Joe Girardi later said was related to COVID-19 protocols.

Brogdon, 26, is 5-2 with one save and a 4.19 ERA in 37 appearances out of the bullpen in his second season with Philadelphia.

Falter, 24, made his major league debut on April 25 and is 1-0 with a 4.58 ERA in eight relief appearances.

Brogdon and Falter also appeared in Saturday’s game.
