News: Romine is currently battling food poisoning, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Romine was supposed to join the team on its current trip, but he's been scratched with the illness. He could miss a few days but should return to action next week, or perhaps even over the weekend.

News: Romine went 1-for-3 in Saturday's Grapefruit League action against the Tigers.
Impact: Romine entered spring training with a chance to win a spot on the big league roster backing up Brian McCann, but John Ryan Murphy was believed to be the favorite for the second catcher on the roster. Murphy's spring struggles -- he's hitting just .111 -- have opened the door for Romine to win the competition, but he'll likely need to show something more than his 3-for-12 start if he wants to avoid beginning the year in the minors.
