Sal Romano rejects an outright assignment in favor of free agency

Former Cincinnati Reds right-handed pitcher Sal Romano rejected an outright assignment in favor of free agency, the New York Yankees announced Monday.

Romano signed a minor-league contract last month with the Yankees. It was his second stint with the team this season.

In two appearances for the Yankees in July, Romano struck out three of the 10 batters he faced, and allowed three hits.

New York Yankees starting pitcher Sal Romano (68) throws a pitch during the sixth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on July 29.

The Milwaukee Brewers announced in August that they designated Romano for assignment.

In his debut for the Brewers, Romano allowed four runs - three of them earned - in a 9-6 home loss to the San Francisco Giants in 11 innings.

The Brewers had claimed Romano off waivers from the Yankees.

In July, the Yankees announced that pitcher Asher Wojciechowski was designated for assignment, and the team selected Romano from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Both pitched for the Reds in 2017, Wojciechowski's only season in Cincinnati.
