Analysis: General manager Bobby Evans says the 30-year-old Romero will begin at extended spring training in Scottsdale, Arizona. Romero last pitched for the Blue Jays in 2013, when he made four appearances with two starts. An All-Star four years ago, the pitcher was released by Toronto last month. He underwent season-ending left knee surgery last June because of inflammation in his quadriceps tendon. He is 51-45 with a 4.16 ERA in parts of five major league seasons.
