Blue Jays not ready to recall Ricky Romero


Despite the recent success of Ricky Romero at Triple-A the Blue Jays are not looking to recall the one-time all-star.

After a rough start at Buffalo, Romero owns a 3.45 ERA over his last five starts. Lost in those stats are the 14 walks that the left hander has given up in those 28 innings of work.

While control has never been one of Romero’s strengths but considering he baseball with 105 walks last season it is something the Blue Jays are looking at him improving. During Romero’s big league career he has allowed 351 walks in 798 1/3 innings of work.

Blue Jays general manager said on Tuesday that Romero could eventually make his way back to the teams rotation at the big league level but there is no rush.

“From a consistency standpoint, you want to see him have the results he needs to have at that level, start after start,” the GM told reporters, via National Post. “So I want to see him do it for awhile.”

Exactly when Romero returns to the Blue Jays is still being evaluated.

“Sure, if he’s performs well and he’s doing great and we have a need up here.”
