2022 Player Outlook
When it seemed like every other day a Blue Jays potential closer suffered an injury early last season, Romano emerged to anchor their bullpen. He relied on his fastball a bit more than in the past, but it was his hard slider that generated more swings and misses (36.5 Whiff %). The Jays will probably eclipse last season’s 91 win total. Romano will be the Blue Jays’ primary closer, and he’ll reap the benefits.
