Romero leaves with sore knee

Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero was removed from Saturday’s game against the host Yankees after three innings because of soreness in his left knee.

Manager John Farrell and assistant trainer Hap Hudson came to the mound after Romero missed high on a 2-2 pitch to Andruw Jones in the third and hopped around the mound in pain. After a few practice pitches, Romero stayed in the game to strike out Jones.

Farrell said Romero wanted to come back for the fourth, but the manager had other ideas.

Romero left the stadium to undergo additional tests.
