Blue Jays | Ricky Romero to take Josh Johnson's turn

Toronto Blue Jays SP Ricky Romero is scheduled to start on Friday, May 3, in place of Josh Johnson (triceps).

Fantasy Tip: Romero couldn't hang on to a rotation spot in spring training thanks to troubles with control and command while attempting to come back strong following an awful 2012 marred by a knee injury and that ended with elbow surgery. He's been working on some mechanical adjustments since sometime in March and had an encouraging outing (six hits, one run, no walks and four K's) for advanced Class A Dunedin last week. Still, it's far from certain that the changes will stick, so Romero is definitely a risky pickup. Those in very deep leagues may want to give him a look, though, especially if Johnson's injury turns out to be serious and Romero is regaining his pre-2012 form.
