Yankees call up reliever Sal Romano, DFA Asher Wojciechowski

Asher Wojciechowski, we hardly knew ye. The Yankees have really taxed their pitching staff since the second half began last Friday, and the cast of characters coming out of the bullpen has been peculiar to say the least, even at the start of ballgames. Wojciechowski was the team’s surprise starter on Wednesday night against the Phillies, and it seemed like a long shot that he would stick around.

Reds' Sal Romano: DFA'd by Cincinnati

Romano was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday. The 27-year-old had a 5.23 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 12:9 K:BB through 20.2 innings this season, leading to his removal from the 4-man roster. Romano could remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Reds' Sal Romano: Off to poor start

Romano has allowed at least a run in his last four outings and five of seven so far, including a two-run homer to Jordan Luplow on Sunday. Romano is out of options, which helped him make the Reds' roster out of spring training, but his roster slot could be precarious. He has allowed four homers in 12.1 innings already, and has struck out only six batters.

Reds pitcher Sal Romano is different than he used to be

When the Cincinnati Reds were going through “The Rebuild (TM)”, much of the success and failure of that stretch was the reliance on the farm system to produce starting pitching. Robert Stephenson, Amir Garrett, Brandon Finnegan, Tyler Mahle, and Sal Romano were the guys the organization was counting on to produce and get them to where they wanted to be. Things didn’t quite work out that way for the organization. It’s led to new pitching coaches and instructors and philosophies throughout the entire organization. Only Mahle remains a starting pitcher from that group. Over the weekend, Romano learned that he had made the team as a reliever.

Cincinnati Reds notes: Sal Romano feels like new pitcher; Tyler Naquin has 'electric' swing

GOODYEAR, Arizona – It was just a little more than a year ago the Cincinnati Reds put Sal Romano on waivers to clear space on their 40-man roster. Romano remained in the organization after he cleared waivers, but he was confident that he deserved to be in the Major Leagues. He proved that when he made two appearances out of the bullpen for the Reds during the end of the 2020 season, and then he proved himself again this spring when he earned a spot on the club’s Opening Day roster.

Reds' Sal Romano: Given roster spot

Romano has made the Reds' Opening Day roster in the bullpen, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Romano was hitting 96 mph with the fastball and 89 mph on his slider this spring, both a little faster than in previous years. "I really do feel like I'm not the same pitcher that I used to be, confidence-wise, the way that I throw, the arsenal I have," Romano said. Romano is out of options, which gave him an advantage to make the team despite a 6.48 ERA in 8.1 spring training innings.
