  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Settles at $7.75 million

    The Blue Jays and Romano avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.75 million contract Thursday, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.

    The closer was eligible for arbitration for the second time. Romano has recorded 36 saves each of the last two seasons in Toronto and will operate as the Blue Jays' ninth-inning man again in 2024.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Blows fourth save

    Romano (5-6) blew the save and took the loss Saturday as the Blue Jays were downed 7-6 by the Rays, giving up two runs on four hits in two-thirds of an inning. He struck out one.

    The Toronto closer gave up three straight hits to lead off the ninth inning, but it looked like he might escape the jam with the score still tied 6-6 when he coaxed an apparent double-play grounder from Junior Caminero. Upon replay, the Tampa Bay rookie was judged to be safe at first base, and Josh Lowe followed with a walk-off hit. Romero hadn't blown a save since May 20, ending his streak of successful conversions at 26 -- a Blue Jays franchise record. On the season, the right-hander has a 2.68 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 70:24 K:BB through 57 innings while converting 36 of 40 save chances.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches 36th save

    Romano picked up the save in Friday's 6-2 win over Tampa Bay. He allowed no hits and one walk while striking out one over 1.1 scoreless innings.

    Romano entered with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth and induced a Curtis Mead grounder to escape the jam before shutting down the Rays in the ninth. The 30-year-old closer added to his current stretch of consecutive saves, pushing the mark up to 26. He hasn't blown a save since May 20 against the Orioles. Romano has produced another steady season with a 2.40 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 69:24 K:BB over 56.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Earns 35th save

    Romano picked up the save Friday against Boston. He struck out two over a perfect inning.

    Romano had uncharacteristically allowed eight baserunners and three runs (two earned) over his previous three appearances spanning four innings but slammed the door on the Red Sox with a strikeout, foulout and a trikeout to comfortably secure his 35th save of the season. The Jays' closer now holds a 2.59 ERA with 66 strikeouts in 53 innings and remains one of the top relievers in baseball.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Takes care of business for save

    Romano got the save in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Royals, pitching a scoreless ninth while allowing two hits and a walk. He struck out two.

    Romano found himself with the bases loaded and just one out but was able to escape the trouble by striking out Nelson Velazquez and getting Maikel Garcia to fly out to end the game. He's now allowed at least one baserunner in each of his last three outings but has still picked up two saves and a win during that span. The 30-year-old has put together another remarkable campaign. He sits at fourth in baseball with 34 saves and owns a sparkling 2.60 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 64:22 K:BB in 52 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Escapes jam for 33rd save

    Romano gave up a run on a hit and two walks in 1.1 innings Friday to record his 33rd save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Royals. He struck out one.

    The right-hander was called in to handle a bases-loaded, two-out situation in the eighth inning, and while he quelled that rally by the Royals, Romano created his own in the ninth by walking two of the first three batters he faced before finally escaping the jam. After a string of nine straight scoreless appearances, Toronto's closer has been tagged for a run in two straight outings, but on the season he still sports a 2.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 62:21 K:BB through 51 innings, with more wins (five) than blown saves (three).

He remains one of the top closers in the game with a 2.44 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 59 strikeouts to go along with 32 saves in 48 innings over 50 appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Grabs save in 10th

    Romano picked up the save Tuesday against Baltimore. He struck out two in a perfect inning.

    After Toronto took a 6-3 lead in the top of the 10th inning, Romano shut the door in the bottom half of the frame, striking out a pair to strand the free runner at second base and earn his 31st save. The right-hander is 3-for-3 in save chances since returning from the IL on Aug 15, allowing just one hit over three scoreless innings. Overall, Romano sports a 2.60 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and 56:16 K:BB across 45 innings this season.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Escapes with 30th save

    Romano picked up the save in Saturday's 4-3 win over Cincinnati. He allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Romano was tasked with preserving a one-run lead in the ninth inning and immediately found himself in hot water, allowing the first two batters to reach on a walk and a base hit. The All-Star closer then induced a flyout, a swinging strikeout and a groundout to end the threat and earn his 30th save. Romano has successfully converted both of his save opportunities since his return from the injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Notches save in return

    Romano (back) struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his 29th save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Phillies.

    In his first appearance since being activated from the injured list earlier in the day, Romano fired eight of 11 pitches for strikes and topped out at 99.6 mph with his fastball, fanning Bryce Harper and Nick Castellanos along the way. The right-hander appears set to immediately resume closing duties for Toronto, with Jordan Hicks and Erik Swanson slipping back into setup roles.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Makes return from IL

    Romano (back) was activated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Romano wound up being sidelined just a couple days beyond the minimum 15 with lower-back inflammation. The closer made one scoreless rehab appearance with Triple-A Buffalo to show the Blue Jays he was ready to go. Romano should immediately regain ninth-inning duties for Toronto.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Targeting Tuesday return

    Romano (back) is on track to return to the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Another bullpen Wednesday

    Romano (back) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Romano resumed throwing off a mound over the weekend and has responded well so far. Out since late July due to lower-back inflammation, he could skip a minor-league rehab assignment and return to the Blue Jays' closer role when first eligible this Sunday. Erik Swanson and Jordan Hicks have largely been sharing ninth-inning duties in his absence.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Cleared for mound work

    Romano (back) completed a bullpen session Sunday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Romano seems to be making good progress in his recovery from lower-back inflammation and looks like he'll have a chance at returning from the 15-day injured list when first eligible Aug. 13. While Romano has been sidelined, the Blue Jays have leaned on Erik Swanson (two saves) and Jordan Hicks (one save) in closing situations.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Begins flat-ground throwing

    Romano (back) played catch on flat ground Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Romano picked up a baseball for the first time since he landed on the 15-day injured list this past Saturday due to lower-back inflammation. He could advance to mound work sometime this weekend and might be able to return to the Blue Jays when first eligible Aug. 13. Yimi Garcia logged the most recent save for Toronto last Friday against the Angels, and the Jays also added Jordan Hicks from the Cardinals ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline. Once Romano is healthy, however, he shouldn't face any competition for saves.
