The Arizona Diamondbacks activated right-hander Tyler Clippard from the COVID-19 list prior to Monday's road game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Clippard was placed on the injured list on Sept. 7. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said at the time that the 36-year-old Clippard was experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

Lovullo said later in the week that Clippard tested negative for the virus.

Clippard has been serving as closer over the past seven weeks and is 1-0 with five saves and a 2.65 ERA in 17 appearances. He missed the first half of the season with an injury to his pitching shoulder.

Clippard, a two-time All-Star, is 56-47 with a 3.12 ERA and 73 saves in 794 appearances (14 starts) over 15 seasons with 10 teams. His stint with the Washington Nationals (2008-14) was his longest and includes both of his All-Star seasons (2011, 2014).

The Diamondbacks optioned left-hander Miguel Aguilar to Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move. Aguilar, 29, is 1-1 with a 6.43 ERA in nine relief appearances for Arizona.
