Toronto Blue Jays Closer Jordan Romano Suffers Minor Ankle Sprain

Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith reports that Toronto Bule Jays pitcher Jordan Romano has a mild left ankle sprain.

Jays’ manager Charlie Montoyo revealed that Romano sustained the injury after he slipped while walking his dog. It’s expected that Romano will be ready for Opening Day and will resume his closing role with the Jays in 2022. In 2021, he had 23 saves, a 2.14 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, and 85 strikeouts in 63 innings.

Romano was Toronto’s tenth-round pick, 294 overall, from the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft. He missed the entire 2015 season due to undergoing Tommy John Surgery. In 2018, Romano was taken third overall in the Rule 5 draft by the Chicago White Sox and then traded to the Texas Rangers. He was returned to the Jays in March 2019 and made his MLB debut that June.

Last season, the Blue Jays finished fourth in the stacked American League East with a 91-71 record, one game back of the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees for a Wild Card spot.

Over at FanDuel Sportsbook, the Toronto Blue Jays are +950 to win the 2022 World Series.
