Romano was forced out of Friday’s win over the Baltimore Orioles after experiencing numbness in his finger. Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo says the team is still awaiting results of the 27-year-old’s MRI.
The Markham, Ont., native has enjoyed a breakout season in 2020, allowing just two earned runs in his 15 appearances out of the bullpen. He has struck out 21 batters and walked five over his 14.2 innings.
Romano’s emergence as a high-leverage arm has helped Toronto weather an injury to closer Ken Giles on opening weekend.
Right-hander Sean Reid-Foley was recalled to take Romano’s spot on the active roster.
