  • Jordan Romano Shut Down For Six Weeks Following Arthroscopic Elbow Surgery

    Blue Jays right-hander Jordan Romano underwent arthroscopic surgery today to repair an impingement in his throwing elbow.

  • Jordan Romano Has Surgery On His Right Elbow

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano (elbow) underwent arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday to fix an impingement in his right elbow, according to manager John Schneider. Romano won't pick up a baseball for at least six weeks, making a return this season uncertain. It's a tough break for any fantasy managers that drafted Romano this year and had been stashing him in an injured-list spot. Given the uncertainty around whether he'll actually pitch again in 2024, he'll most likely be dropped at this point. Yimi Garcia (elbow) is also on the IL and is looking to go on a minor-league rehab assignment soon. Until then, veteran right-hander Chad Green remains first in line for saves in Toronto. When Garcia returns, it's unclear exactly how Schneider will handle the team's save opportunities.

  • Jordan Romano Shut Down From Throwing

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Jordan Romano (elbow) has been shut down from throwing again, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet. Romano experienced more elbow discomfort when throwing on Friday and will now seek further medical evaluation. The Toronto closer has been on the 15-day injured list since June 1 with right elbow inflammation and has faced numerous setbacks in his recovery process. Before the injury, the 31-year-old struggled this season with a 6.59 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 4:13 BB:K ratio in his limited 13 inning sample size. He tallied only eight saves. While Romano remains sidelined, Chad Green should continue to be expected to serve as the primary ninth-inning option, but 33-year-old Yimi Garcia (elbow) could also become a candidate when he returns from the injured list sometime in July.

  • Jordan Romano Back Up To 120 Feet

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano (elbow) is back to throwing out to 120 feet on flat ground. The Blue Jays are still working toward getting Romano on a mound, which will begin a more formal rehab schedule, but it's encouraging to hear the hurler is back to where he was at in his throwing program before it was slowed down a week ago due to right elbow inflammation. Although he has a chance to resume throwing off the mound sometime during this weekend's series against the division-rival New York Yankees, Romano is unlikely to rejoin Toronto's bullpen until early July at this point. With Yimi Garcia (elbow) joining Romano on the sidelines, Chad Green is the Jays' favorite for ninth-inning work for the time being and belongs on the majority of fantasy rosters for those who need saves.

  • Jordan Romano, Yimi Garcia Playing Catch

    Headshot for Yimi Garcia

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano (elbow) played some light catch on Monday. Meanwhile, fellow reliever Yimi Garcia (elbow) was throwing from 120 feet. Romano is already playing catch again after reporting some soreness in his right elbow while throwing long toss last Friday. The 31-year-old isn't close to a return, though, especially since he can't seem to shake his right-elbow issues since they first cropped up in spring training. When he has been available, he's been shaky with a 6.59 ERA, a 1.46 WHIP, eight saves and 13 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings. Still, he should be stashed in all fantasy formats as Toronto's primary closer when he's healthy. Garcia has filled in nicely for Romano this year and already has five saves. Until one of Romano or Garcia can return from the injured list, Chad Green will serve as the Jays' first option in save situations.

  • Jordan Romano Shut Down From Baseball Activities

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays reliever Jordan Romano (elbow) was shut down from baseball activities by the team after experiencing soreness in his right elbow while throwing long toss on Friday. The shutdown is only expected to be for a few days but it marks a setback in Romano's recovery. The 31-year-old has been on the injured list since June 1st and missed the start of this season with elbow inflammation, adding to the Blue Jays' need to be cautious with any setbacks. Romano did not perform well while healthy, posting a 6.59 ERA in just over 13 innings while still leading the Blue Jays in saves with eight. In his absence, and with Yimi Garcia being placed on the injured list, Toronto has turned to Nate Pearson for their closer role. Fantasy managers in need of a closer should consider Pearson, though his 4.13 ERA isn't exactly appealing on the surface.

  • Jordan Romano Could Be Back On A Mound On Wednesday

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano (elbow) is long-tossing from 90 to 120 feet on Monday, and if all goes well with his throwing session, he could get back on a mound as early as this Wednesday. Romano has yet to throw off a mound again since landing on the 15-day injured list on June 1 with right-elbow inflammation. The 31-year-old right-handed closer has already been on the IL twice this year with arm injuries and hasn't been as effective when on the field for the Jays, posting a 6.59 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with eight saves and 13 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings out of the bullpen. Romano will likely have to go on a minor-league rehab assignment before coming off the injured list, but it will probably be a short one. Keep Romano stashed, as he'll return to primary closing duties in Toronto when he's healthy. Chad Green is next up for saves this week for the Jays with Yimi Garcia dealing with an elbow injury of his own now.

  • Jordan Romano Throws From 90 Feet On Friday

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano (elbow) threw from 90 feet on Friday before the team's contest against the visiting Cleveland Guardians. Romano is getting stretched out after landing on the 15-day injured list with right-elbow inflammation. It's been an injury-plagued year to this point for Romano, as he's already been on the injured list two separate times. And when he's been healthy, he hasn't been in All-Star form like he was in 2023, going 1-2 with a 6.59 ERA (6.15 FIP), a 1.46 WHIP, eight saves, four walks and 13 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings out of the bullpen. Romano should return to closer duties in Toronto when he comes off the injured list after recording 95 combined saves the previous three seasons. But in the meantime, Yimi Garcia should see most of Toronto's save opportunities. Keep Romano stashed in all fantasy formats.

  • Jordan Romano Receives Injection, Will Throw In 3-5 Days

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano (elbow) received an anti-inflammatory injection in his injured right elbow on Sunday, according to manager John Schneider. It was a similar injection to the one he received in spring training, and he should be throwing again in three to five days. Romano missed around three weeks when he got his first injection and was forced to start the 2024 regular season on the injured list as a result. The 31-year-old is Toronto's closer when healthy, but this is already his second elbow injury of the year, and there's no current timetable for his return. In the meantime, Yimi Garcia's fantasy stock is up considerably as the Jays' first option for saves with Romano on the shelf. Romano has eight saves this year, but he hasn't been as sharp, either, with a 6.59 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with four walks and 13 K's in 13 2/3 innings pitched.

  • Jordan Romano Placed On The 15-Day Injured List

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Jordan Romano (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured list with right-elbow inflammation on Saturday, June 1. In a corresponding move, Brendon Little was promoted from Triple-A. The closer has been dealing with soreness in his elbow since Wednesday of this week and will now be sidelined for an extended period. In addition, the 31-year-old battled a similar injury earlier in the spring, which delayed his start to the season. Romano has pitched only 13 innings this season to the tune of a poor 6.59 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 4:13 BB:K ratio. As a result, Yimi Garcia and Chad Green are both candidates to see the majority of save opportunities while Romano remains sidelined.

  • Jordan Romano Experiencing Elbow Soreness

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays manager John Schneider says that closer Jordan Romano (elbow) "didn't bounce back" from his last outing on Wednesday, so he wasn't available for Friday's series opener against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. Schneider described it as right elbow soreness for Romano, and the club will know more on Saturday. It needs to be noted that Romano's start to the season was delayed due to a bout with inflammation in the same elbow, so it's not what the Jays or fantasy managers want to hear. The hard-throwing 31-year-old right-hander has struggled to a 6.59 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB over 13 2/3 innings this year, so it's fair to wonder if he isn't fully recovered. Yimi Garcia pitched a scoreless ninth inning in a tie ballgame on Friday, and he figures to split save chances with Chad Green if Romano needs to miss additional time. Garcia and Green registered two saves apiece during Romano's absence earlier this year.

  • Jordan Romano Logs Eighth Save, Allows Homer

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano logged his eighth save of the year with one strikeout in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the hosting Chicago White Sox, but not before he allowed a solo home run in the victory. Romano served up a solo homer to White Sox catcher Korey Lee, but he still locked down the save fairly comfortably on Wednesday. The hard-throwing 31-year-old right-hander has gone 8-for-9 on save chances this season, but fantasy managers will want to see him sharpen up on his 6.59 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB over 13 2/3 innings after the hurler's late start to the campaign due to injury. While Romano is still Toronto's preferred ninth-inning man, he'll need to cut down on the homers if he wants to avoid losing out on save opportunities, as he's already given up four long balls.

  • Jordan Romano Nets Seventh Save

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano safeguarded Sunday's win over the division-rival Tampa Bay Rays, recording the final out for his seventh save of the year. After Isaac Paredes got to Zach Pop for a two-run home run, it became a save situation for Romano to handle. He needed just four pitches (all sliders) to put away Jonny DeLuca and wrap things up in the ninth inning. The 31-year-old two-time All-Star stopper has endured a rocky start to the season after also missing the early stages with an elbow problem, posting a 4.91 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over 11 innings thus far, but he's converted seven of his eight save opportunities with a 10:3 K:BB for the Jays and remains Toronto's favorite for ninth-inning work moving ahead.

  • Jordan Romano Preserves Blue Jays Win Over Twins

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Despite allowing a two-out double to Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler, Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano picked up his sixth save of the season in Saturday's 10-8 win at Rodgers Centre. Romano avoided allowing an earned run for the first time in three appearances in May, lowering his ERA to 4.15. An encouraging stat for fantasy managers is that Romano struck out two batters on Saturday, only the second time he has done so in 2024. His current 7.0 K/9 is light years from Romano's 11.0 K/9 last season. Despite the drop in K/9, Romano is a top-five fantasy closer with six saves, 4.15 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and an 8:2 K: BB across 8 2/3 innings in 2024.

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano picked up his fourth save of the season in Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. He struck out two of the three batters he faced. The 31-year-old had a late start to the season due to injuries, but he is back and locked into the ninth-inning role for Toronto. Romano is a perfect 4-for-4 on save opportunities thus far to go along with a 3.18 ERA. He has been one of the best fantasy closers over the past few seasons and should continue to be a valuable asset.

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano recorded his third save on Monday in a 5-3 victory against the Kansas City Royals. Romano allowed one hit (one homer) with one strikeout in one inning pitched. He has now recorded three saves in four games that he has appeared in while recording a 4.50 ERA with three hits (one homer), and three strikeouts in four innings pitched. He may not be flashy with the strikeouts but he is recording saves and makes for a decent option for depth across all leagues. He is worth monitoring as he came off the injured list recently with elbow inflammation and has been a high-end closer in recent seasons.

  • Jordan Romano Notches Second Save

    Headshot for Jordan Romano

    Toronto Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano nailed down his second save since coming off the IL in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres. Romano needed just eleven pitches to dispense all three batters he faced, striking out one and not allowing a hit or a walk. The 31-year-old looks like he's sliding right back into the closer role for the Jays and doesn't have any real competition for the job, as set-up man Erik Swanson has allowed four earned runs on six hits in his inning-and-a-third since coming off the IL as well. Romano tallied 36 saves for the Jays last season. Toronto closes out the series with San Diego on Sunday before traveling to Kansas City for a four-game set with the Royals starting on Monday.
