Romero (hand) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Monday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

Romero underwent minor surgery at the end of August to put a pin in his broken non-throwing (right) hand, and he'll officially be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season as a result. Monday's move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Paolo Espino, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move. Romero has reportedly been able to participate in a throwing program while he recovers, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him ready for spring training in 2021.
