RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Romero finished 2013 with Triple-A Durham, but it was pretty clear that he needed another year of seasoning in the minor leagues, so he returned to the International League where he had mixed results as a 23-year-old. His 4.50 ERA and 1.43 WHIP are a bit unsightly, but he showed significant improvement down the stretch. In eight starts after the All-Star break, he posted a 2.32 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 39:14 K:BB ratio in 42.2 innings. His dominant fastball/curveball combo from the left side might be best suited in a high-leverage role out of the bullpen. However, Romero certainly has the body of a starter (6-foot-3, 210 pounds), and his success in the final five weeks of the season offers hope that he can stick in a rotation. It is not clear when or in what role Romero will join the Rays in 2015, but he is ready to contribute to the big league club in some capacity this season.
Romero made a meteoric rise in the Rays' organization, ultimately landing in Tampa Bay to make a spot start in September. He spent most of the season with Double-A Montgomery, where he went 11-7 with a 2.76 ERA and 110 strikeouts in 27 starts. Despite a slim stature, the lefty can run his fastball consistently around 95 mph. His secondary pitches may still need some fine-tuning, but he is further evidence of how deep the talent runs in the pitching department of the Rays' system. He cut back a bit on his walk rate in 2013 and showed solid poise in his start for the Rays during a playoff chase. He could make a run at a rotation spot in the spring, but will more likely begin 2014 at Triple-A Durham, though he could end up making starts with the Rays at some point in the season.
Romero spent the 2012 season at High-A Port Charlotte and is rising up the ranks of top prospects in the Rays' farm system. On the season, Romero went 5-7 with a 3.93 ERA and 107 strikeouts over 25 appearances (23 starts). He is a lefty with a big fastball and is developing his curveball and changeup. He continued to struggle with control in 2012, as he walked 5.4 BB/9. Romero is still a few years from the majors and will need to improve his control and location to continue moving up the ranks. He will likely begin 2013 at Double-A Montgomery.
Romero had a season of mixed results for Low-A Bowling Green, finishing with a 4.26 ERA and 1.509 WHIP. However, his 140 strikeouts in 114 innings are evidence of the amount of upside the youngster has when he can control his pitches. This was his first full professional season which is something to consider and as he matures he should fill out his lanky 6-foot-3 frame. Look for Romero to work on improving his control when he likely starts the season at High-A Charlotte. He's someone to keep an eye on as he could develop into the Rays' next big pitching prospect.
