    • Romero was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left elbow sprain Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Romero's fastball velocity dipped to 94.3 mph Wednesday after averaging 95.7 mph over his previous two appearances, so it's perhaps no surprise to learn that something was wrong with his arm. The severity of the injury and his expected return date are not yet clear. Fellow lefty Ranger Suarez was recalled in a corresponding move.

    • The Phillies recalled Romero from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday. Romero will provide the Phillies with another fresh arm out of the bullpen after Archie Bradley (oblique) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Over his 12 appearances out of the Philadelphia bullpen as a rookie in 2020, Romero gave up nine earned runs on 13 hits and two walks in 10.2 innings.

    • The Phillies optioned Romero to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Though Romero made his big-league debut in 2020 as a reliever, the Phillies may not be ready to pull the plug on developing the 24-year-old as a starter. Since there wasn't going to be a spot available for him in the Phillies' Opening Day rotation, Romero will instead move to Triple-A in order to pick up regular innings. The Phillies could still keep him near the top of the list for a promotion if the team needs a mop-up man or another lefty option out of the bullpen.

    • Romero was recalled by the Phillies on Friday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The 23-year-old was optioned to the alternate training site after serving as the 29th man for Thursday's doubleheader, but he'll quickly rejoin the team with Jose Alvarez (groin) placed on the injured list. Romero has yet to make his major-league debut and had a 6.88 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 40:35 K:BB over 53.2 innings at Triple-A in 2019.
