by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' Austin Romine: In lineup for first game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine is starting at catcher and batting eighth in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday against the Reds.

So far this season, Romine has started two straight days, then gotten the third day off. Saturday was slated to be an off day, but the game was rained out and rolled into Sunday's doubleheader, which will feature two seven-inning games. Romine will likely get the second half of the doubleheader off, with Grayson Greiner entering the lineup.

Tigers' Austin Romine: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine will hit the bench Wednesday against the Royals.

Through six games so far this season, the Tigers have followed a pattern of giving Romine two straight starts followed by one for Grayson Greiner, who gets the nod behind the plate in this one. Romine has gone 3-for-13 with a homer through his first four games this year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' Austin Romine: To stick beyond 2020?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine could end up staying in Detroit past this season after making a strong impression in the offseason, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Romine agreed to a one-year, $4.15 million contract with the Tigers back in December, with the idea that he'd serve as a veteran stopgap until Jake Rogers was ready. However, the 31-year-old looked good in the spring, and now it's uncertain if Rogers will be able to continue his development in the minors this season. That could all lead to Romine returning as Detroit's starting catcher in 2021.

Tigers' Austin Romine: Slotted in as top catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine figures to serve as Detroit's top catcher when the season resumes, with Grayson Greiner or Eric Haase serving as his backup, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

The Tigers optioned Jake Rogers to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, further cementing Romine's status as the team's top backstop. The 24-year-old Rogers made his MLB debut last season and is still considered the catcher of the future in Detroit, but the veteran Romine figures to serve as a bridge in 2020.

Tigers' Austin Romine: Heads to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine agreed to a one-year, $4.15 million contract with the Tigers on Thursday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Romine saw limited action while serving as the backup catcher for the Yankees, but he had a solid year in 2019, hitting .281/.310/.439 with eight home runs and 35 RBI in 73 games. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 31-year-old serve as the primary catcher for the Tigers next season.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Rangers.

After replacing starting catcher Gary Sanchez in the sixth inning, Romine launched his eighth homer of the season with a solo shot in the ninth. Across 73 games with limited action at the plate, Romine is batting .279/.308/.438.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine will sit Wednesday against the Rays.

Romine had started six of the previous eight games behind the plate with Gary Sanchez battling a groin injury. Kyle Higashioka gets the nod Wednesday.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine will be on the bench Wednesday against the Angels.

Romine is expected to split time with Kyle Higashioka in the absence of Gary Sanchez (groin). Higashioka takes his turn behind the plate Wednesday.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Set to split catching duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine will take on a "fairly even" time split behind the plate while Gary Sanchez (groin) is out of action, Jordan Horrobin of MLB.com reports.

Romine will split time with Kyle Higashioka while Sanchez is on the shelf in an effort to protect both backup catchers from fatigue down the stretch. While Romine has enjoyed a successful season in limited duty -- he is slashing .287/.319/.446 with seven homers in 214 plate appearances -- he has started consecutive games only once since Aug. 14. Romine went 2-for-5 in Friday's win over Toronto, but Higashioka is starting behind the plate Saturday.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine is not in Saturday's lineup against the Blue Jays, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Gary Sanchez is out with a groin strain, which could sideline him for the rest of the regular season, so Romine will serve as the primary catcher for the foreseeable future. However, he'll make way for Kyle Higashioka in this one.

Yankees' Austin Romine: On base four times in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine went 2-for-2 with a solo home run, a double and two walks while scoring three times in a win over Boston on Monday.

Romine led off the scoring for the Yankees with a solo shot to right field in the fifth inning. The 30-year-old has reached based in six of his last eight plate appearances but has played only twice in September while serving as Gary Sanchez's backup. He has made the most of his opportunities this season, slashing .275/.305/.435 with seven homers and 33 RBI in 204 plate appearances.

Yankees' Austin Romine: On bench for third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine will be on the bench for a third straight game Monday against the Rangers, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Romine was behind the dish for three of the Yankees' final five games of August, but his opportunities to catch will likely fall by the wayside now following the recent return of Luke Voit from the injured list. With Voit back in the fold, the Yankees are expected to rotate Mike Ford, Clint Frazier, Aaron Judge and perhaps some of the team's infielders at the designated hitter spot, forcing the defensively challenged Gary Sanchez to handle more work behind the plate.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine is not starting Wednesday against the Orioles, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Romine has homered in back-to-back games, going 4-for-9 with four RBI and three runs scored in those contests, but he'll head to the bench for Wednesday's series finale as Kyle Higashioka gets the nod behind the dish.

August 8, 2019 12:36 AM
Yankees' Austin Romine: Posts three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a solo home run, three RBI and two runs in a 9-4 victory against the Orioles on Tuesday.

He only has six long balls this season, but that's Romine's fourth homer in the last six games. He's also 14-for-36 (.389 batting average) in his most recent 11 contests, which has raised his season average 37 points. Romine is batting .267 with 13 extra-base hits, 28 RBI and 18 runs in 146 at-bats this season.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Romine was behind the plate in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader sweep of Boston, going 0-for-3 with a walk in that contest. He'll just be getting some routine maintenance for the day game after the night game, allowing Kyle Higashioka to receive a turn at catcher.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.

He is hitting .438 with two home runs in 16 at-bats (six games) since Gary Sanchez's groin injury. Sanchez is expected to come off the injured list next week. Kyle Higashioka is starting at catcher and hitting seventh Saturday.

Yankees' Austin Romine: Delivers late two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine went 1-for-2 with walk and a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-5 win over Arizona.

Romine came through during the seventh inning to provide the Yankees with a 4-3 lead, his second straight game with a homer. The 30-year-old has a .265/.285/.394 slash line with four home runs in 43 games and should continue splitting starts behind the plate with Kyle Higashioka until Gary Sanchez (groin) can return from the injured list.

July 30, 2019 03:40 PM
Yankees' Austin Romine: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Romine and Kyle Higashioka have been alternating starts behind the plate with Gary Sanchez out with a groin injury. Higashioka takes his turn Tuesday, but Romine will likely return to the lineup Wednesday if the pattern continues.
