Top Tommy Romero News

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Sent down Sunday

    Romero was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Romero made his major-league debut as a starter Tuesday against the Athletics and allowed three runs on two hits and five walks while striking out one in 1.2 innings. He pitched the final two innings of Sunday's win over the White Sox and allowed a run on a hit and no walks while striking out three. While the 24-year-old was more effective Sunday, he'll head to the minors after the Rays traded for Javy Guerra on Saturday. Although he was sent down Sunday, he remains one of the team's top prospects and should be in the mix to rejoin the Rays at some point.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Following opener

    Romero is expected to throw multiple innings behind opener J.P. Feyereisen on Sunday against the White Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Romero struggled in his MLB debut Tuesday against the Athletics, giving up three runs and walking five batters while recording just five outs. The Rays will hope for more from him this time around but won't rely on him as a conventional starter. The fact that he'll follow an opener means he won't have to last five innings to earn a win.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Covers 1.2 frames in debut

    Romero allowed three runs on two hits and five walks across 1.2 innings during Tuesday's 9-8 extra-inning win over the A's. He had one strikeout and didn't factor in the decision.

    The 24-year-old and opposing starter Adam Oller both made their major-league debuts, and neither pitcher was able to make it through the second inning. Romero is one of Tampa Bay's top pitching prospects, but he struggled with his control and threw just 31 of his 59 pitches for strikes. The Rays are down Luis Patino (oblique), Ryan Yarbrough (groin) and Shane Baz (elbow) in the rotation, though that doesn't necessarily mean Romero will receive another chance to start following Tuesday's poor performance.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Call-up official

    The Rays recalled Romero from Triple-A Durham in advance of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Athletics in Tampa Bay.

    Tampa Bay placed Luis Patino (oblique) on the injured list in a corresponding move. With the Rays now down three members from their projected Opening Day rotation in Patino, Ryan Yarbrough (groin) and Shane Baz (elbow), Romero could have a decent amount of leash in the Tampa Bay rotation, provided he doesn't lay an egg Tuesday in his MLB debut. Though the Athletics erupted for 13 runs in a blowout win Monday, the lack of established bats in their lineup makes for a soft landing spot for Romero, who dazzled in the minors last season with a 2.61 ERA and 145:31 K:BB across 110.1 innings. He'll make for an intriguing streaming option this week.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Slated to start Tuesday

    The Rays announced that Romero will start Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Romero resides on the Rays' taxi squad for the time being, but he'll be officially added to the 28-man active roster following Monday's series opener with Oakland. As expected, he'll slot into the rotation as a replacement for Ryan Yarbrough (groin), who was placed on the injured list earlier Monday. The 24-year-old Romero was one of the Rays' top arms in the upper minors in 2021, as he finished the season with a 2.61 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 145:31 K:BB across 110.1 innings between stops at Triple-A Durham and Double-A Montgomery.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Part of taxi squad, for now

    The Rays added Romero to their taxi squad Monday, setting the stage for a potential call-up at some point during the team's four-game series with Oakland.

    Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reported Sunday that Romero was en route to joining the Rays' active roster, but the 24-year-old right-hander will remain in limbo for the time being as a member of the taxi squad. Tampa Bay recalled reliever Ryan Thompson from Triple-A Durham on Monday and placed Ryan Yarbrough (groin) on the injured list in a corresponding move, but the move might have been made as a means of having a fresh arm out of the bullpen for the series opener with the Rays. Yarbrough's turn in the rotation is scheduled to come up Tuesday, so Tampa Bay could still formally recall Romero from Durham to start that day in what would be his MLB debut. Romero produced a 2.61 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 110.1 innings between Durham and Double-A Montgomery in 2021.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Recalled by Rays

    Romero was recalled by the Rays on Sunday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Romero sustained a right tricep contusion during spring training, but he made a start at Triple-A Durham on Thursday and tossed 3.2 scoreless frames. The right-hander made 23 appearances (21 starts) between Double-A and Triple-A last year, and he posted a 2.61 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 110.1 innings. Passan notes that Romero's big-league stint may not be a long-term one, but he'll have a chance to prove himself with the Rays since Ryan Yarbrough (groin) will be placed on the 10-day injured list. Romero tentatively lines up to make his major-league debut at home against the Athletics on Tuesday, but it's not yet clear whether he'll start or pitch behind an opener, John Romano of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Optioned to Triple-A

    Romero (triceps) was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Romero worked with the major-league club early in spring training but sustained a right tricep contusion when he was struck by a comebacker during his lone Grapefruit League appearance. He'll report to Triple-A Durham to begin the year, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him available once the regular season gets underway.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Struck by liner Wednesday

    Romero was removed from his relief appearance in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against Atlanta due to a right tricep contusion, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Romero picked up the injury when he was struck in his pitching arm by a line drive. The 24-year-old appeared to be fine when he was checked out by the Rays' training staff, so his removal from the contest may have been precautionary more than anything else. Assuming the bruise doesn't provide too much pain in his subsequent throwing sessions, Romero should be ready to make regular starts for Triple-A Durham when the affiliate begins its season April 5.

  • Rays' Tommy Romero: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Romero was added to the Rays' 40-man roster Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 24-year-old righty is one of the more underrated pitching prospects in the minors. He logged a 3.18 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 62.1 innings at Triple-A last season and should spend a good chunk of next season working in the majors, either as a starter or reliever.
