Despite not having as many save and closing opportunities this season due to the Toronto Blue Jays not having many leads, Canadian closer, Jordan Romano is still staying sharp when his name is called.

Despite fewer save chances, Romano trying to stay sharp.

Because the Toronto Blue Jays have been struggling to win games and keep leads, beloved Canadian closer Jordan Romano hasn't pitched in 5 games. and has only faced 1 batter in the last 9 days.
A pitcher needs reps and live action in order to stay sharp and on top of their game. It makes it difficult when your job is to only come into to the game when they hold a lead and need someone to close it out.
When he was called on in the 8th inning against the Tigers, he was out of his element as the situation is different than what he is used to. But it was a needed outing.

Schneider wants to use Romano with the accustomed adrenaline generated by entering a save situation, but needed to bring him into a game just to keep him sharp.

"It's a close ballgame and I really wanted to just keep the score at what it was, right?" said Romano. "It's a one-run game and you know with our guys coming up to bat in the ninth, that is well within reach. So I just got into those good counts and see what happens. It was five days off, and I don't like to go more than that, That's just what I'm trying to do when I get out there," Romano said. "It's ‘attack the zone and get in good counts.' And today worked out, so the plan was executed." - Romano
