Yankee Released Lefty Reliever J.C. Romero

The Yankees signed J.C. Romero a few weeks back as a possible lefty reliever out of the bullpen, but after a few weeks pitching for Triple-A Scranton the Yankees have decided to release the lefty veteran, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Romero, 35, appeared in 11 games for Scranton. He had a 2.92 ERA over 12.1 innings to go along with 10 strikeouts and five walks. Nothing overly impressive or poor, but the Yankees must not have liked what they have seen from him. This makes it the third time he has been released since June.
