    World Baseball Classic - Semifinals - Puerto Rico v Japan

    J.C. Romero‘s work as a late-inning reliever for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic convinced the Nationals to sign him to a minor-league contract.

    Tim Keown of ESPN suggests  that Bud Selig should drop the hammer on A-Rod so as to make an example out of him. In his words, to “make an honorary sacrifice” out of him. Among his suggestions: … could A-Rod be suspended from the game long enough to effectively end his career? Just spitballing here,…

    miguel tejada a's

    Baltimore’s Triple-A roster is littered with big names and former big leaguers, including Miguel Tejada, Jamie Moyer, Lew Ford, Pat Neshek, J.C. Romero, Joel Pineiro, Bill Hall, and Nate McLouth. Some of them, like Ford, are thriving as they try to make it back to the majors one last time, but the 38-year-old Tejada is…

  6. Not done yet: 49-year-old Jamie Moyer signs with Orioles

    Jun 6, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    Apparently being released by the Rockies last week won’t be the end of the line for Jamie Moyer, as the Orioles have signed the 49-year-old left-hander to a minor-league contract. Moyer will report to Triple-A and join the rotation in Norfolk, which has amassed quite an amazing collection of former big leaguers. In addition to…

  7. Orioles sign well-traveled J.C. Romero to minor-league deal

    May 24, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v St. Louis Cardinals

    At this point J.C. Romero is running out of teams for which he hasn’t already played, but the Orioles are one of the few holdouts and today they signed the 35-year-old reliever to a minor-league contract. Romero was released by the Cardinals two weeks ago and spent time in four different organizations last season, bouncing…

  8. Dodgers release veteran reliever Mike MacDougal

    May 14, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    This is a tough day to be a 35-year-old reliever who can’t throw strikes. First the Cardinals released left-hander J.C. Romero and now the Dodgers have released right-hander Mike MacDougal, whom they designated for assignment last week. MacDougal had a nice-looking 2.05 ERA in 69 appearances for Los Angeles last season, but it came along…

  9. Cardinals release veteran reliever J.C. Romero

    May 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v St. Louis Cardinals

    J.C. Romero coughed up multiple runs Saturday for the third straight appearance and he won’t get a chance to snap that streak with the Cardinals, as they released the veteran left-hander this morning. Romero, who was signed to a one-year, $750,000 deal in December, finishes his time in St. Louis with a 10.13 ERA and…

  10. Running down the rosters: St. Louis Cardinals

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    The World Series champion Cardinals will go it without Albert Pujols, but the additions of Adam Wainwright (back from Tommy John surgery) and Carlos Beltran should sufficiently make up for that. On paper this year’s team looks just as good as the one that won it all. Of course, last year’s winners wouldn’t have sniffed the postseason…

  11. Dan Patrick clarifies his comments about Ryan Braun being “innocent”

    Jan 24, 2012, 1:32 PM EDT

    NLCS Cardinals Brewers Baseball

    In law school they teach you the difference between “innocent” and “not guilty” pretty quickly. Dan Patrick didn’t go to law school, so forgive him for not having that down pat. Today — Via Tom Haurdricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel — he clarifies his comments from yesterday regarding Ryan Braun and “innocence”: “I want to clarify something…

    Florida Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    J.C. Romero was suspended for 50 games in 2009 following a positive drug test in 2008.  He claimed at the time that the supplement he was taking — which he purchased at a GNC store — was tainted.  And he sued the supplement’s manufacturer and distributor.  The New York Daily News reports that he has…

  13. Cardinals finalize one-year deal with reliever J.C. Romero

    Dec 15, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Florida Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    J.C. Romero has bounced around a ton over the past few seasons and his latest home is St. Louis, as the Cardinals have finalized a one-year deal with the left-handed reliever. Romero’s terrible control and inability to consistently get right-handed batters out make him a poor fit in a setup role, but he remained death…

    romero ap

    From FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal comes word that the Cardinals are nearing a one-year contract agreement with left-hander J.C. Romero. Romero posted a pedestrian 4.01 ERA and 19/15 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings this year between the Phillies and Rockies. But he was effective against left-handed batters, holding them to a .231/.318/.231 slash line, and…

  15. Phillies decline $4.5 million option on J.C. Romero for 2011

    Oct 26, 2010, 5:16 PM EDT

    Romero

    In a no-brainer move, the Phillies have declined their $4.5 million option on reliever J.C. Romero for 2011. He’ll get a $250,000 buyout instead. Philadelphia signed Romero to a three-year, $12 million deal after he posted a 1.24 ERA in 36 innings down the stretch in 2006. He was reasonably solid in Year 1 of…
