Jays place closer Romano on injured list due to right elbow inflammation

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed closer Jordan Romano on the 15-day injured list due to right elbow inflammation.

The 31-year-old right-hander has a 1-2 record, eight saves and a 6.59 earned-run average over 15 appearances this year.

Romano, from Markham, Ont., missed the first 17 games of the season with a similar elbow issue.

Yimi Garcia and Chad Green are expected to be the primary high-leverage relief options for the Blue Jays while Romano is out.

The move to the IL was retroactive to Thursday.

The Blue Jays also recalled left-hander Brendon Little from Triple-A Buffalo ahead of a matinee against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates.
