Breaking News: Promotion for Romero Coming Soon
Ricky Romero

Posted Jul 25, 2005

Inside The Dome has learned that the Blue Jays organization is expected to promote LHP Ricky Romero sometime this week, and possibly as soon as Tuesday.

Romero is currently slated to pitch on Wednesday for the Doubledays, however, Inside The Dome believes he will not be making that start for Auburn. As of Monday evening there was no word as to which level Romero would be transferred to. Earlier this month Blue Jays General Manager J.P. Ricciardi said that he would like to give Romero a taste at the Florida State League before the end of the season.

Romero pitched on Saturday for Auburn in his professional debut and allowed two runs, a walk, and struck out two in two innings of work.
