The Phillies have received some bad news recently as Major League Baseball has suspended lefty reliever J.C. Romero for the first 50 games of the 2009 season due to him testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. The 32-year old lefty was a major cog in the Phillies’ bullpen last season as he worked in 81 games (0 starts) in which he was 4-4 with 1 save, a 2.75 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. In two seasons with the Phillies, Romero is 5-6 with 1 save, a 2.17 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. This will definately hurt the Phillies as Romero is the only quality lefty they have currently in the bullpen.
