Whither Romero?

2014/03/21 § Leave a comment

Some people following the Toronto Blue Jays this spring started getting a bit more optimistic about Ricky Romero. But, in his last outing, he gave up five walks, three hits, and two wild pitches in less than three innings, earning himself another trip to Buffalo.

As recently as 2011, Romero was an All-Star. What happened? The Drunk Jays Fans blog has an answer: Romero isn’t effective against left-handed hitters, which is unusual, since he is left-handed. Other teams have figured this out. This makes it unlikely that he will return to form, unless he develops a new pitch.
