WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Romero is a speedy outfielder who’s been a prolific base stealer.
Romero played mostly left field, and showed speed and good plate discipline.
Back in the DSL, Romero had a remarkable season, spending most of it over .400 and being named the league’s MVP. He led the league in steals and wasn’t thrown out until four days before the season ended. He split his time between the three outfield positions.
The pandemic wiped out the season.
Romero will be in the Florida Complex League in 2021. Despite his great 2019 season, he hasn’t shown up on the prospect radar. That’s probably due to questions about his projection and the fact that he was nearly 20, which is old for a prospect in the DSL.
