There was a report late this afternoon that at least one Cubs player was headed to the COVID-19 list:

Here are the names of three Cubs pitchers who are being placed on the 10-day injured list:

As Gordon Wittenmyer notes, the Cubs are not specifically saying these three pitchers are going on the COVID-19 list, but neither have they said these pitchers are injured. However:

Adam and Winkler pitched in Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh and Workman threw on Saturday and none of the three showed any sign of injury.

Wittenmyer also reports via Twitter that corresponding roster moves are TBA, but there are two pitchers on the road with the team via the “taxi squad,” and the purpose of said taxi squad is in part to provide replacements for events like this without having to fly someone in from another location.

Brad Wieck and Pedro Strop are the pitchers on the taxi squad. Wieck is on the 40-man roster (optioned), but Strop isn’t.

Regarding tonight’s game:

I’m posting this now to get the information out there and will update this post when the corresponding roster moves are announced.

UPDATE — clarification on the injured list placement:

UPDATE — it’s officially the COVID-19 list, and here are the replacements:
