  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Dealing with illness

    Romano was unavailable to pitch in Monday's game against the Mariners due to a non-COVID-related illness, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Romano will be considered day-to-day moving forward and was spotted pacing the bullpen during Monday's matchup. "He's not gonna stay in the clubhouse, he's a gamer," said manager Charlie Montoyo. "And it's not COVID, so he's not contagious." The team will likely re-evaluate the closer Tuesday morning before determining his availability for the second game of the series.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Unavailable Monday

    Romano will not be available to pitch in Monday's game against Seattle and is currently being evaluated by the team's medical staff, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    The location and nature of Romano's injury remain a mystery at this point, and the Blue Jays will excercise caution by holding him out of the series opener. He'll be considered day-to-day until more information becomes available. Adam Cimber could serve as the team's closer if the situation presents itself Monday evening, as he's seen three save chances so far this season.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Blows second save Tuesday

    Romano (1-2) blew the save and took the loss Tuesday as the Blue Jays were downed 6-5 by the Yankees, giving up three runs on one hit and two walks in one-third of an inning with the out coming via strikeout.

    Called upon to protect a 5-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth, Romano fanned Isiah Kiner-Falefa before issuing walks to Jose Trevino and DJ LeMahieu, setting the stage for the first walkoff homer of Aaron Judge's career. It's the first time Romano has walked multiple batters this season, and he sports a 3.29 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB through 13.2 innings while going 12-for-14 on save chances.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Snatches 12th save

    Romano pitched a scoreless ninth inning on his way to a save in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Yankees. He allowed two hits and walked one while also registering a strikeout.

    Romano had to work his way out of danger in this one, loading the bases in the ninth inning before getting Isiah Kiner-Falefa to ground out to end the contest. The 29-year-old has a league-high 12 saves on the season and now has a 1.35 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with 15 punchouts over 13.1 innings. With only one blown save in 13 attempts, he appears to be one of the best closer options for 2022 moving forward.

    Romano gave up a one-out double to Kyle Tucker on Sunday, marking the first extra-base hit he's allowed in his last four outings. However, the right-hander preserved the one-run lead to earn his league-best 11th save.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Ties league lead in saves

    Romano tossed a scoreless ninth inning and picked up his 10th save of the season in Saturday's victory over the Astros.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Logs ninth save

    Romano recorded the save Thursday, allowing one hit while striking out one over a scoreless inning in a 1-0 win over the Red Sox.

    Thursday's performance was a nice bounceback for Romano, who recorded his first blown save of the season earlier in the week. Currently his nine saves have him ranked second in the league, trailing only Milwaukee closer Josh Hader's 10.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Blows first save

    Romano (0-1) allowed two runs (one earned) in Sunday's loss to Houston. He struck out one batter and was charged with a loss and the blown save.

    Dating back to last season, Romano had converted 31 consecutive save chances before he coughed up a walkoff homer to Jeremy Pena on Sunday. Despite the poor outing, the 29-year-old has registered a 2.16 ERA with a 10:2 K:BB over 8.1 innings. He's still locked into Toronto's closer role barring an extended slump.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Racks up eighth save

    Romano gave up two hits and struck out three in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his league-leading eighth save of the season in a 4-3 win over the Astros.

    A leadoff single by Yuli Gurriel put some pressure on Romano, but the Toronto closer answered the challenge. His saves streak now stands at 31, with his last blown opportunity coming more than a year ago, and Romano's 1.13 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 9:2 K:BB through eight innings to begin 2022 are elite.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Earns save despite shaky outing

    Romano earned the save after allowing one run on one hit during the ninth inning of Thursday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox. He walked one and didn't record a strikeout.

    Romano came on in the ninth inning in relief of starter Kevin Gausman, who allowed a leadoff single to Trevor Story. Romano proceeded to walk the first batter he faced and allowed an RBI double to the subsequent hitter Xander Bogaerts. However, the closer was able to lock down his seventh straight save to start the season after getting three consecutive groundouts to end the game.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Dominant stretch continues

    Romano walked one batter in a scoreless ninth inning and earned a save over Oakland on Sunday.

    Romano walked Kevin Smith with two outs but managed to lock down the 4-3 win for Toronto with no issue. The 28-year-old righty is already 6-for-6 in save chance with a 6:1 K:BB this season. He's yet to allow a run, and he's notched a save in each of Toronto's wins so far this season.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Racks up fifth save

    Romano struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his fifth save of the season in a 4-1 win over the A's.

    The right-hander has an early lead in saves across MLB, as he's seen a save opportunity in all five of his appearances so far and has yet to stumble. Romano's 0.00 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and 6:0 K:BB through five innings are excellent, and the 28-year-old could be ready to ascend to the ranks of elite closers in 2022.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches another save

    Romano gave up one hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to collect his fourth save of the season in a 6-4 win over the Yankees.

    Romano has now saved all four of Toronto's wins so far and appears set to join the ranks of elite closers after posting a 2.14 ERA with 23 holds last year. The 28-year-old has yet to walk a batter through four innings of work and has racked up four strikeouts.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Nails down third save

    Romano gave up two hits and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to collect his third save of the season in a 3-0 win over the Yankees.

    That's three wins for the Blue Jays and three saves for Romano, as the right-hander looks set to join the ranks of elite closers this season. Monday's two hits were the first baserunners he's allowed in his three innings so far to go along with a 0.00 ERA and 3:0 K:BB.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Collects second save

    Romano earned a save against the Rangers on Saturday by throwing a perfect ninth inning.

    Romano was summoned to protect a one-run ninth-inning lead and did so with ease, needing just eight pitches (six of which were strikes) to set the side down in order. The right-hander has earned a save in each of Toronto's first two games and has yet to allow a baserunner in two innings of work.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches first save

    Romano struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his first save of the season in a 10-8 win over the Rangers.

    It didn't look like Toronto's closer would get in any work when the team fell behind 7-0 in the early going, but Romano wound up finishing out the largest comeback by a team on its Opening Day in 72 years. The right-hander is the clear top dog in the Blue Jays' bullpen after racking up 23 saves in 24 attempts with a 2.14 ERA and 33.6 percent strikeout rate in 2021.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Cleared for minor-league game

    Romano (ankle) is scheduled to pitch in a minor-league game Sunday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Romano recently suffered a mild ankle sprain when he slipped while walking his dog, but he missed only a day of workouts before he was able to get back on the mound Friday. After completing a bullpen session without incident, Romano will face hitters Sunday, which seemingly clears up any concern about his availability for Opening Day. Manager Charlie Montoyo has yet to formally name a closer ahead of Opening Day, but Romano looks like the best bet for saves out of the Toronto bullpen after posting a 2.14 ERA while converting 23 of his 24 save chances in 2021.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Throws successful bullpen

    Romano (ankle) threw a successful bullpen session Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Romano has been dealing with a mild left ankle sprain, but the issue doesn't seem to be bothering him too much with just under a week remaining until Opening Day. He was able to exert full effort with normal velocity and movement Friday. The right-hander is scheduled to pitch in a minor-league game Sunday before appearing in a Grapefruit League matchup Tuesday, and it seems likely that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season as long as those two throwing sessions go well.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Dealing with mild ankle sprain

    Manager Charlie Montoyo said Thursday that Romano is dealing with a mild left ankle sprain, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Romano recently slipped while walking his dog, but the injury isn't expected to affect his availability for Opening Day. Assuming the 28-year-old is fully healthy once the regular season gets underway next week, he's in line to serve as the Blue Jays' closer after he converted 23 of 24 save chances with a 2.14 ERA and 1.05 WHIP across 63 innings last year.
