Romero 100% a Money Move, Mills Success Likely Cost him a Roster Spot
100% money move. If you take a look at the stuff, spring results and comments surrounding both Cecil & Mills you would come to the conclusion that both should be in the rotation come April. This leads to my most discussed topic…
I’m beginning to repeat myself. Sorry. But the fact is that contract control is absolutely key in this and most prospect decisions these days. Take Matt Weiters for instance. Is he ready? Hell yeah. But the Orioles are holding off until a little over a month into the season to gain an extra year of contract control. The same thing is definitely happening with Cecil and is most likely happening with Mills. In-fact, I’d say that Mills would have made the team if he was LESS impressive. Brad upped his stock so much this spring that the Jays want another year of control.
What does this sudden boost in stock say about the Jays feelings about Romero? I see it as a sign that they don’t think as much about him long-term as they do Cecil & Mills.
