Top Austin Romine News

  • 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.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Starting Sunday

    Romine will start at catcher and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Romine will give Robinson Chirinos a breather in the series finale after the latter started the past three games behind the plate. Romine is slashing just .200/.200/.314 this season with a single home run, so he doesn't offer a ton of fantasy appeal when he's in the lineup.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Slugs first homer

    Romine went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during Game 1 of Wednesday's twin bill versus the Rockies.

    Romine notched his first homer and first two-hit performance in the early game of the doubleheader before going 0-for-1 in the nightcap. The veteran catcher has seen limited playing time this season, slashing .207/.207/.345 across 30 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Starting Sunday

    Romine is starting at catcher and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Royals.

    With Robinson Chirinos getting the day off in the series finale, Romine will slide into the lineup. Chirinos has become the team's primary catcher with Willson Contreras (knee) on the injured list. That's elevated Romine to the backup role, which doesn't give him a ton of fantasy value, though he'd see an uptick if anything happened to Chirinos.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Reinstated from 60-day IL

    Romine (wrist) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Romine had been sidelined since April 25 due to a significant left wrist sprain, but he appeared in four rehab games across the last several weeks. The 32-year-old went 4-for-10 with two doubles, two runs and a strikeout in his rehab stint, and he'll now serve as a depth option at catcher after Willson Contreras (knee) was placed on the 10-day IL.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Rehabbing in ACL

    Romine (wrist) began a rehab assignment Monday with the Cubs' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate. He started at catcher and went 1-for-2 with a double.

    The rehab appearance marked Romine's first game action since April 25, when he suffered a significant left wrist sprain that sidelined him for three months. Because of the lengthy layoff, Romine will likely be in store for an extended rehab assignment that spans multiple minor-league affiliates. Once reinstated from the 60-day injured list, he could supplant Robinson Chirinos as the No. 2 catcher behind top backstop Willson Contreras.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Romine was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Romine was placed on the injured list with a "significant" wrist sprain April 26, and he'll be sidelined until at least late June. Tony Wolters should continue to serve as the backup catcher behind Willson Contreras.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Out several weeks

    Romine is dealing with a "significant" wrist sprain and will miss several weeks, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Romine was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, and he'll miss more than the minimum amount of time while he recovers. He doesn't yet have an established timetable to return to game action, but Tony Wolters should serve as the primary backup behind the plate while Romine is out.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Placed on injured list

    Romine was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left wrist sprain Monday.

    Romine struck out in each of his two at-bats in Sunday's loss to Milwaukee, and he apparently sustained a wrist injury that will force him to miss time. Tony Wolters' contract was selected in a corresponding move, and Wolters should serve as the primary backup to Willson Contreras while Romine is sidelined.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Activated and starting

    Romine (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list and will start Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    Romine missed the start of the regular season due to a right knee sprain, but he'll now serve as the Cubs' backup catcher after Tony Wolters was designated for assignment Wednesday. Romine will bat eighth while starting behind the dish for the series finale against Milwaukee.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Officially placed on 10-day IL

    Romine (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Romine has been sidelined since early March due to a right knee sprain, and he'll be forced to miss time to begin the regular season. Tony Wolters will serve as the backup catcher behind Willson Contreras while Romine is unavailable.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Doing light work

    Romine (knee) is doing "some baseball activity" but remains unlikely for Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Romine has completed light hitting and throwing, but he is still experiencing some mobility issues with his sprained right knee. If the veteran is not ready for Opening Day, P.J. Higgins will likely serve as the backup catcher behind Willson Contreras.

  • Cubs' Austin Romine: Looking iffy for Opening Day

    The Cubs have offered no concrete timeline for Romine (knee) to return and are considering other options for their Opening Day roster, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Romine has been out since March 6 with a right knee sprain, and manger David Ross said Wednesday that the catcher is still dealing with soreness. If Romine is unavailable come Opening Day, Chicago will likely use either P.J. Higgins or Jose Lobaton as the backup to Willson Contreras.
