Cooper was reinstated last Friday to start against the Tampa Bay Rays, 37 days after testing positive for COVID-19 as a part of the clubhouse outbreak. He came into the match with lots to prove as the team was winning without his talents.

And through three games, he sure has proved himself.

Cooper went 2-for-4 with a double in his return from the injured list last Friday’s loss. He followed the outing with a home run and four RBI’s, which included a three-run double in the seventh inning.

With Cooper hitting better than ever, he may have secured a universal designated hitter position for the rest of 2020.
