RotoWire News: Romero allowed one hit and struck out one in a shutout inning of relief during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves. (3/22/2017)

Profile: Baseball America ranked Romero the fourth-best prospect in the Tampa Bay system in 2014. He was the highest ranked lefty hurler in the system, 10 spots ahead of Blake Snell and 13 spots ahead of Felipe Rivero. He enters '17 as a hurler out of options with a big fastball that he struggles to command from batter to batter. Romero is at his best when he gets ahead of the hitters and gets them to swing over the cutter, which has an elite swinging strike rate. However, those type of plate appearances are too infrequent. There were five outings in which he walked two or more batters and 10 in which he allowed at least two earned runs. ERA, FIP, xFIP, DRA... the results all look particularly bad. He might be better served going with the cutter full time if the fastball command continues to lag. (Jason Collette)

The Quick Opinion: Romero's bad command offsets his big fastball. He is rarely used in high leverage because of his issues, so saves and wins are mostly acquired rather than earned. Still, that cutter is a nasty pitch when he is on.
