2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Romano was sent to repeat the Double-A level after a rough showing in Pensacola the year before, and he responded well to the assignment. In his age-22 season, Romano amassed 156 innings in 27 starts while producing a strong 3.52 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. His workload wasn't the only impressive part, as he also managed to put up a 144:34 K:BB in that span while allowing just 0.6 home runs per nine innings. The scary part is that his peripherals suggest that his numbers could've been even better; his FIP sat nearly 60 points below his ERA (2.94) and the BABIP opposing hitters produced against him sat at an unsustainably-high .332 mark. With an arsenal that features a mid-90s sinking fastball to go with a developing curveball and changeup, Romano has the dealings to make the leap to Triple-A next season and potentially reach the big leagues by late 2017 or early 2018.
