After designating him for assignment yesterday, the Blue Jays have outrighted pitcher Justin Germano to Triple-A, tweets Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca. The move allowed for the return of one-time ace Ricky Romero to the big league club.
Germano, a 30-year-old journeyman, signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays early in the offseason. He has made just one relief appearance with Toronto this year, allowing two earned runs over two innings. Germano started twelve games for the Cubs last season, but struggled to a 6.75 ERA during his stint with Chicago.
