MLB: Jordan Romano quit all-star game with trainer


The Toronto Blue Jays have one thing to worry about with the all-star game, and that is the health of their star reliever Jordan Romano.

The latter came into the game in the seventh inning with the American leading 2-1 over the National League. He forced Will Smith to hit a fly ball to right field for the first out.

Romano then saw his former teammate Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit his fifth pitch of the game into the left field bleachers and the officials initially called it a home run. The manager of the American Dusty Baker, however, asked for a review on the game.

While the officials were checking the footage, Romano was visited by the trainer and his manager of a game on the mound and left the game afterwards accompanied by the trainer. He was replaced by Michael Lorenzen.

Baker told MLB insider Ken Rosenthal during the game broadcast that Romano felt stiffness in his lower back, which led to his leaving the mound. Toronto returns to action Friday with a series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
