Jordan Romano, 30, the Toronto Blue Jays’ backstop, 카지노 is out with an injury, and the team has a plan in place.

Toronto recalled right-hander Nate Pearson from Triple-A to join the team for a home game against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

“There’s nothing new right now,” Toronto manager John Schneider said in a pregame interview. It’s just an insurance policy,” he said, explaining that the move was made in case Romano was placed on the disabled list.

The Blue Jays later placed Romano on the 15-day disabled list with back inflammation and added Pearson to the roster.

Romano left the mound during the last All-Star Game with back problems and was removed from the game the day before after struggling in a ninth-inning save situation.

Schneider said, “It’s the same as the day before. “It’s the same as the day before. It’s just a strain,” Schneider said.

Romano has been the team’s backstop this season, posting a 2.79 ERA and an American League-leading 28 saves in 44 games.

His departure is more than just a hole for one player. Someone has to close the door.

When asked about his plans for the closer’s role in the event of Romano’s departure, Schneider hinted that it would be a group effort, saying, “We’re going to mix and match depending on who we’re facing.” He already mentioned names like Garcia, Tim Mayza, and Eric Swanson.

Swanson, in particular, made a strong impression the previous day when he came on in relief with the bases loaded in the seventh inning and pitched a scoreless inning. “He’s been good in big situations all season,” Schneider said of his performance.

Toronto announced its lineup for the day: Wee Merrifield (left field), Bo Bissett (shortstop), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (first base), Matt Chapman (third base), George Springer (right field), Danny Jansen (designated hitter), Alejandro Kirk (catcher), Santiago Espinal (second base), and Kevin Kiermaier (center field).
