Top Jordan Romano News

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Undergoes offseason surgery

    Romano had surgery to repair a torn left meniscus in early November, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Romano noted that he was dealing with the injury down the stretch of the 2021 season, but he managed to pitch through it by receiving treatment. "Two weeks into the offseason I got an MRI showing the tear and we went down to Cleveland and got the surgery, got it cleaned out," said Romano. "Now we're six weeks out and it feels like a brand new knee. It's going to be nice to go out there and not have to worry about it." Romano will now turn his attention to his usual offseason throwing program in preparation for 2022.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches 22nd save

    Romano gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his 22nd save of the season in a 6-5 win over the Yankees.

    The right-hander turned in his ninth straight scoreless appearance to help keep the Jays in the hunt for a wild-card spot. Romano has been outstanding since the All-Star break, posting a 2.51 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 42:7 K:BB through 28.2 second-half innings while converting all 15 of his save chances.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Locks down 21st save

    Romano struck out three batters during a perfect four-out save in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Twins.

    Romano entered in the eighth with two men on and two outs and got Miguel Sano to go down swinging to end the inning. He came back out for the ninth and recorded two more punchouts, including a game-ending strikeout against Luis Arraez to shut the door on the Twins. Romano has emerged as one of the top-tier closes in major league baseball this season, as he's 21-for-22 in save chances and owns a sparkling 2.24 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 81:24 K:BB over 60.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Shaky in save

    Romano collected a save after pitching a scoreless inning while walking three batters and striking out two in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rays.

    The closer struck out the first two batters he faced before walking the next three. He was able to escape unscathed after getting Joey Wendle to fly out for the final out. Romano is now 20-for-21 in save opportunities with his only blown save all the way back on April 8.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Converts 19th save

    Romano struck out one and hit a batter in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-3 win over Minnesota.

    The right-hander had little trouble closing out Minnesota, stretching his scoreless innings streak to six. Romano continues to thrive in the closer role, going 19-for-20 in save chances while adding five holds, a 7-1 record, 2.33 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 76:21 K:BB across 58 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches 18th save

    Romano struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his 18th save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Rays.

    The Jays closer had a bumpy couple outings earlier in September, but for the most part Romano has been outstanding this season. He sports a 2.41 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 73:20 K:BB through 56 innings, and he's picked up a win (seven), save or hold (five) in 30 of his 56 appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Clean inning for save

    Romano pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in an 11-10 win over Baltimore in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader.

    The right-hander didn't seem likely to pitch in the contest until Toronto rallied ahead in the seventh inning. Romano got the job done with his third straight scoreless inning after allowing three runs in two innings earlier in September versus Oakland. The 28-year-old has a 2.45 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 72:20 K:BB across 55 innings this year, and he's gone 17-for-18 in save chances.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Nails down 16th save

    Romano struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his 16th save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Yankees.

    The right-hander has blown only one save all year, and that came back in early April. Romano seems to have a firm grasp on the closer job for Toronto with a 2.50 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 72:20 K:BB through 54 innings on the season, and while Julian Merryweather was activated off the IL on Wednesday, he may not be much of a threat to Romano's ninth-inning role.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Falls into seventh win

    Romano (7-1) picked up the win in Friday's wild 11-10 victory over the A's, giving up two runs on two hits in the ninth inning. He struck out two without walking a batter.

    The Jays headed into the eighth inning down 8-2 but staged a huge rally to tie the game. Romano then came out for the top of the ninth and promptly served up a two-run shot to Mark Canha, but then found himself collecting a win instead of a loss when Marcus Semien responded with a walkoff three-run blast. Romano saw his 11-game scoreless streak snapped, but he still has a sharp 2.47 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 69:20 K:BB through 51 innings on the year with 15 saves and five holds in addition to his victories.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Logs 15th save

    Romano struck out two in a perfect inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 5-4 win over Baltimore.

    The right-hander needed 17 pitches (12 strikes) to get through the inning, but he emerged with his 15th save in 16 chances. Romano remains a solid closing option with a 2.16 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 67:20 K:BB through 50 innings this season. He's currently riding an 11.2-inning scoreless streak, during which he's posted a 19:2 K:BB with two wins and six saves.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Nails down 14th save

    Romano struck out one in two-thirds of an inning to record his 14th save of the season in a 7-3 win over the Orioles.

    It didn't look like Romano's services would be needed headed into the ninth inning, but Trent Thornton gave up one run on two hits and a walk, putting the tying run on deck and prompting manager Charlie Montoyo to turn to his closer. Romano has been scored upon only once in 12 appearances in August, posting a 1.42 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 21:3 K:BB through 12.2 innings on the month with two wins and five saves.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Collects sixth win

    Romano (6-1) picked up the win in Saturday's 3-2 extra-inning victory over the Tigers, giving up one hit over two scoreless innings. He struck out two.

    Entering the game in the bottom of the ninth, Romano navigated through the heart of the Detroit order on only 10 pitches, and he needed only 10 more to finish things up in the 10th after Toronto took the lead. The Jays closer has reeled off nine straight scoreless appearances with a dominant 16:2 K:BB over 10 innings during that stretch, but he could be unavailable Sunday should the team have a late lead to protect.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Converts save No. 13

    Romano allowed a hit in a scoreless inning and earned the save in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the White Sox.

    Toronto finally took the lead with a two-run rally in the eighth inning, and Romano made it stick while throwing 12 of 17 pitches for strikes. The 28-year-old has four saves and a win in his last eight appearances, a span that's seen him pitch eight straight scoreless innings. He's up to 13-for-14 in save chances with five holds, a 2.33 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 62:20 K:BB across 46.1 innings this year.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Collects 12th save

    Romano struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Monday to record his 12th save of the season in a 2-1 win over the White Sox.

    The right-hander has been dominant in August, posting a 2.00 ERA and 18:3 K:BB through nine innings while picking up a win and three saves. Toronto's bullpen has been an issue all season, but the closer role at least seems to be in good hands with Romano.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches 11th save

    Romano gave up one hit and struck out three batters in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his 11th save of the season in a 3-0 win over the Tigers.

    The flamethrowing right-hander gave up a single to Derek Hill on the first pitch he threw, then overpowered the heart of the Detroit order to close things out. Romano has had some ups and downs this year but hasn't actually blown a save since April 8, and he sports a 2.44 ERA and 60:20 K:BB through 44.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Secures 10th save

    Romano picked up his 10th save of the season in Sunday's 9-8 win over the Red Sox, fanning two in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Romano needed 17 pitches to get the job done, with 12 of his offerings finding the strike zone. The right-hander looks to be manager Charlie Montoyo's preferred option for saves at the moment, even after Toronto acquired a proven closer at the deadline in Brad Hand.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Picks up win, fans two

    Romano (5-1) earned the win in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox. He tossed a scoreless inning, fanning two.

    Romano pitched the seventh inning and kept the game scoreless with a sharp outing, as he needed only 14 pitches (eight strikes) to get the job done. The right-hander, who has gone 9-for-10 in save chances this season, should remain Toronto's main late-inning arm going forward.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches ninth save

    Romano gave up a run on one hit and a struck out one in the ninth inning Friday to record his ninth save of the season in a 6-4 win over the Royals.

    Trade-deadline acquisition Brad Hand worked the eighth inning and also gave up a run, albeit an unearned one, so for now it looks like Romano will remain the top closing option for the Jays. The right-hander stumbles into the final day of July with an 8.10 ERA on the month, but Romano's 2.48 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 44:17 K:BB through 36.1 innings on the season are far more palatable.
