SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Padres manager Bob Melvin returned Wednesday after being sidelined by COVID-19 protocols for 11 games.

"I might be the healthiest guy that you might be around ever during this whole thing right now," Melvin said during his media session before the series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Melvin, 60, said he's been asymptomatic for the past nine days. He went into the protocols in between games of a doubleheader on June 11. He said he had a scratchy throat and tested positive. "The next day I had no symptoms. I've had no symptoms the entire time since.

"It feels great to be back. That was very unsettling to sit around like that and have to watch games for that long and feeling the way I did. It's a crazy world we live in," he added.

Quality control coach Ryan Flaherty managed 10 games in Melvin's absence and bench coach Ryan Christenson was cleared from protocols in time to manage Tuesday night. Christenson went into protocols at the same time as Melvin.

The Padres went 6-5 in Melvin's absence. They entered Wednesday's play percentage points behind the Los Angeles Dodgers atop the NL West.

Melvin also missed nine games after undergoing prostate surgery on May 11.
