      Report: Ricky Romero undergoes knee surgery

      The career of once-productive Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero took another step backward this week when he underwent knee surgery, Sportsnet has reported. Romero, who has struggled with knee problems for two years, could end up requiring surgery on both knees. He will be evaluated in six weeks to determine the best course of action. The 29 year old made nine starts at Triple-A Buffalo this season with a 5.50 ERA and 42 walks in 37 2/3 innings. His fine seasons with Toronto from 2009 and 2011 are becoming a distant memory.

      Ricky Romero could be subject of disagreement in Toronto

      John Gibbons and his front office might not be seeing eye-to-eye on the immediate future of Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero, the National Post has speculated. Romero was dispatched to Triple-A Buffalo after walking five and giving up three runs in 2 2/3 innings against Detroit on Tuesday. "It didn't help," Gibbons said about the mauling by the Tigers. "But we just feel [he needs] more work. As far as Ricky moving in the right direction, we really like what he did in this camp. Just go down there and polish it up." Blue Jays management, however, had suggested that based on previous outings, Romero could land a spot in the starting rotation. He boasted a 1.29 spring ERA heading into that game. The rotation now appears set with R.A. Dickey as the ace, followed by Mark Buehrle, Brandon Morrow, Drew Hutchison and J.A. Happ. The most likely to falter and allow Romero to sneak back in is Happ, who has struggled with his control and effectiveness since 2010.
