Blue Jays' depth will be tested as Ross Stripling, Jordan Romano join crowded IL

Before the season, a talking point for Blue Jays front office was the team’s depth, both on the pitching and position player side.

Only two weeks into the season, it is being seriously tested.On Thursday, the Blue Jays added starter Ross Stripling and reliever Jordan Romano to the 10-day injured list, a recurring trend in recent days for the Blue Jays that brings their current IL to 10 players, with a diagnosis pending on Cavan Biggio , who exited Thursday’s 7-5 loss against the Kansas City Royals with pain in his right hand after a ball appeared to clip him.

His X-rays came back negative, the team said.

Stripling’s trip to the IL seemed inevitable after he was scratched from his start a day ago with right forearm tightness.
