Blue Jays pitcher Yimi Garcia has been on fire this season for a struggling bullpen which has many questioning if he should be the main closer.

Garcia has been putting up incredible numbers for the Jays with a 0.53 ERA and 0.59 WHIP in 17 innings pitched.
While Jordan Romano seems to still be the main closer for the Jays, since coming back from injury in late April, he has a 5.06 ERA but has managed to get 6 saves.
While Garcia has been better this season, it is hard to not look at the fact that Romano has been one of the best relievers in the MLB since 2021 with 101 saves.
Most Saves in MLB since 2021:

122 — Emmanuel Clase (23 BS)
115 — Kenley Jansen (17 BS)
108 — Josh Hader (11 BS)
101 — Jordan Romano (11 BS)

"Romano is an unreliable Closer." 🤦‍♂️

Luckily the Jays have at least two solid options for closers as the rest of their bullpen has been quite awful this season.
