Boston Red Sox Sign Former Yankees Pitcher

In a maneuver aimed at fortifying their pitching arsenal, the Boston Red Sox have signed former New York Yankees pitcher Sal Romano to a minor-league contract.

Romano, a seasoned right-hander with five seasons of MLB experience, brings a wealth of skills and potential to the table.

Despite his recent absence from the majors, Romano's journey, spanning stints with various teams including the Cincinnati Reds, Milwaukee Brewers, and Seattle Mariners, underscores his resilience and determination in the face of adversity.

Over his five-year career, the 30-year-old holds a 5.23 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, with 211 strikeouts across 275.1 innings and 88 appearances.

With Romano's arrival, the Red Sox aim to bolster their pitching depth, especially in their farm system represented by the Triple-A Worcester team.

His impressive repertoire, featuring a sinking fastball averaging 93.6 mph and a sharp slider at 87.3 mph, presents an intriguing option for the organization.

Whether utilized as a starter or reliever remains uncertain, but Romano's presence adds seasoned experience to the roster, offering a potential pathway to redemption and success for the 30-year-old pitcher. Photo Credit: Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports
