  • Reds' Austin Romine: Activated by Cincy

    The Reds activated Romine on Thursday.

    Cincinnati acquired Romine in a deadline deal Tuesday with the Cardinals, but the team waited two days before properly clearing room for him on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster. Fellow backstop Mark Kolozsvary was optioned to Triple-A Louisville to clear room for Romine, who could be deployed in a timeshare with Michael Papierski behind the dish for Cincinnati.

  • Reds' Austin Romine: Heading to Cincy

    Romine was traded from the Cardinals to the Reds on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations.

    Romine signed with St. Louis in June after beginning the season with the Angels, and he'll now be moving on to the Reds. The 33-year-old has a .428 OPS in 37 plate appearances this year and should provide organization depth behind the plate for Cincinnati.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Activated by Cardinals

    Romine (personal) was activated from the restricted list Friday.

    Romine was unable to travel to Canada for the Cardinals' two-game series against the Blue Jays this week due to his vaccination status, but he'll be available for the team's weekend series against the Nationals. He'll reclaim his spot as the No. 2 catcher behind Andrew Knizner until Yadier Molina (knee) returns from the injured list.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Placed on restricted list

    Romine (personal) was placed on the restricted list Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Romine is one of three players on the Cardinals that is ineligible for the two-game series in Toronto due to his vaccination status. He will likely be reinstated ahead of the team's three-game set with the Nationals on Friday. Ivan Herrera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday to replace Romine on the active roster.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Won't travel to Toronto

    Romine won't travel with the Cardinals for the two-game series against the Blue Jays this week due to his vaccination status, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Romine will be placed on the restricted list ahead of Tuesday's series opener, as he can't cross the border into Canada since he's unvaccinated. The Cardinals will need to promote another catcher to serve as the backup to Andrew Knizner.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Not in Monday's lineup

    Romine isn't starting Monday against the Phillies, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Riding pine Saturday

    Romine isn't starting Saturday's game against Philadelphia, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Looks like new No. 1 catcher

    Romine will start at catcher and bat ninth in Thursday's game against Atlanta, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Romine is behind the plate for the third time in four games, and at least for the time being, he appears to have unseated Andrew Knizner as the Cardinals' preferred option at catcher while Yadier Molina (knee) remains on the injured list. In his first two games with St. Louis, Romine has gone 1-for-7 with a walk.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Romine is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    After getting called up from Triple-A Memphis on Monday, Romine started behind the plate in the first two games of the Cardinals' series with Atlanta and went 1-for-7 with a walk. Andrew Knizner will step in behind the dish Wednesday, but Romine looks as though he'll at least be part of a timeshare at catcher until No. 1 backstop Yadier Molina (knee) is ready to come off the injured list.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Called up by Cardinals

    Romine was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    Romine signed with the Cardinals in mid-June, and the Cardinals decided to add him to the big-league roster Monday. Romine and Andrew Knizner figure to share the duties behind the plate with Yadier Molina (knee) sidelined.

  • Cardinals' Austin Romine: Catches on with Cardinals

    Romine signed a minor-league contract with the Cardinals on Friday.

    He will report to Triple-A Memphis. Romine, 33, played in three games with the Angels last year and 28 games for the Cubs in 2021. Yadier Molina (knee inflammation) is on the injured list, so Romine could see time in the majors once he knocks some rust off.

  • Austin Romine: Cut loose by Halos

    The Angels released Romine on Wednesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Romine and the Angels may have mutually agreed to the release, given that the 33-year-old backstop was recently reassigned to Triple-A Salt Lake and was buried on the organizational depth chart at catcher behind Max Stassi, Kurt Suzuki, Chad Wallach and Matt Thaiss. While Stassi and Suzuki spent time on the COVID-19-related injured list in May, Romine saw action in three big-league games and went 2-for-8 at the plate.

  • Angels' Austin Romine: Heads back to minors

    Romine returned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Romine gave the Angels' added catching depth when both Max Stassi and Kurt Suzuki hit the COVID-19 injured list in early May. He got into three games, going 2-for-8 at the plate, and will return to the minors with Suzuki now back on the active roster.

  • Angels' Austin Romine: Joins big-league club

    Romine had his contract selected by the Angels on Tuesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    The 33-year-old joined the Angels on a minor-league deal in mid-March, and he'll now join the big-league club with Max Stassi (undisclosed) and Kurt Suzuki (undisclosed) on the COVID-19 injured list. Romine and Chad Wallach should split catching duties until Stassi or Suzuki can return.

  • Angels' Austin Romine: Joins Angels camp

    Romine signed with the Angels as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    The veteran probably fits best as a third catcher at this point in his career. His lifetime .238/.277/.358 slash line is far from impressive, but his .232/.254/.316 line over the last two seasons is even worse.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Lands on injured list

    Romine was placed on the injured list Thursday for an unspecified reason, which likely means that he's on the COVID-19 IL, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Romine had started just one of the last four games, but he'll now be away from the team. It's not yet clear whether he could return during the final series of the regular season, but catcher Erick Castillo's contract was selected by the Cubs to serve as catching depth behind Willson Contreras.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Playing time dwindling

    Romine remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

    Both Romine and Robinson Chirinos are expected to see few opportunities to play in September after top backstop Willson Contreras was reinstated from the injured list Saturday. In the five games since Contreras returned, Chirinos has started once, while Romine has yet to crack the lineup.
