by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Doing light work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cubs' Austin Romine: Dealing with knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine has been sidelined since Saturday due to a right knee sprain, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Romine's injury isn't believed to be too serious, but the catcher has been monitored by the team while he recovers. A timetable for his return hasn't yet been established. The 32-year-old went 3-for-9 with a home run, three RBI and three strikeouts over three spring games prior to his injury.

Cubs' Austin Romine: Joins Cubs on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Cubs on Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Romine was a competent catcher in 2018 and 2019, hitting a combined .262/.302/.428 (good for a 94 wRC+) with 18 homers in 150 games. His numbers fell off a cliff with the Tigers last season, as he stumbled to a .238/.259/.323 line (54 wRC+) while striking out 34.8 percent of the time. For the majority of his career, he's looked like a backup, and that's what he lines up as in Chicago for now, though a rumored Willson Contreras trade could see him step into a starting role.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romine (wrist) is back in the lineup Sunday against Cleveland.

X-rays were negative after Romine took a ball off his left wrist during the ninth inning of Friday's game. He got a day off Saturday, and evidently the swelling has gone down enough to where Romine can return to catching duties. Romine has been in a bad way at the plate with just four hits in 34 September at-bats (.118 average).
