|Ricky Romero pitches well in relief Wednesday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Blue Jays starting pitcher Ricky Romero, who is vying for a spot in the team's rotation, had another strong outing Wednesday against the Rays. Pitching in relief of Marcus Stroman, Romero allowed one run on two hits and two walks, while striking out three in four innings.
The only run Tampa Bay scored off Romero came on a Hak-Ju Lee single with two outs in the sixth inning. It was the first run all spring Romero has allowed. He has a 1.29 ERA in seven innings.
|Ricky Romero hoping stem cell treatments lead to success |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/3/14) Ricky Romero -- in competition for the fifth spot in the Blue Jays rotation -- had stem cell procedures in October, in hopes of fixing his ailing knees. According to the National Post, Romero had bone marrow extracted from the back of his pelvis and injected into his knees.
Romero contends that it has been a slow process, although it seems to be working (albeit slowly). And while Romero struggled with control in an intrasquad game, his velocity has been fine.
From 2010 to 2011, Romero had a 3.31 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. He fell apart in 2012, posting a 5.77 ERA and 1.67 WHIP, as the pain in his knees intensified. Last season, Romero appeared in four games, giving up nine earned runs over 7 1/3 innings.
|Ricky Romero can't find strike zone in debut |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Blue Jays pitcher Ricky Romero struggled to find the strike zone in his first start of the spring Saturday against the Orioles, a sign he has not quite worked out his issues.
Romero pitched just one inning and needed 15 pitches to get out of it. He walked two straight batters to open the frame, but bounced back to retire the side on three straight pop ups. He threw 15 pitches in the frame, just five of which went for strikes.
Romero was a disaster last season, walking 71 batters in 128 innings between the majors and minors.
|Ricky Romero 'moving in the right direction' |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(2/26/14) Blue Jays pitcher Ricky Romero threw two innings of batting practice Monday, and while he was erratic at first, he settled down as the session elapsed, MLB.com reports.
"I like the way he's throwing," manager John Gibbons said. "I think he's moving in the right direction. To me, he looks confident. He's feeling good about himself. He's not where he needs to be or where he wants to be yet, but he's going in the right direction."
Romero is looking to recapture his 2011 form, when he finished 15-11 with a 2.92 ERA in 32 starts.
|Blue Jays outright Ricky Romero |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(10/4/13) The Blue Jays have outrighted pitcher Ricky Romero to Triple-A Buffalo, MLB.com reports. Romero was awful in 7 1/3 innings with Toronto, as he posted an 11.05 ERA and a 2.59 WHIP.
|Ricky Romero fell apart in 2013, taking his 5.77 EA in 2012 and nearly doubling it (11.05) over four appearances. Things didn't get much better in the minors, as Romero posted a 5.52 ERA in 23 games. However, after making adjustments to his delivery -- essentially wiping out many of the tweaks the Blue Jays made -- Romero showed some signs of hope, going on a run of non-disaster starts in June and July. He was still erratic, and it remains a mystery as to what went wrong and how to fix it, but Romero could have some single-league value with a strong spring.
