2017

Romero missed the 2015 season following Tommy John surgery, but he wasted no time last year reminding people of the promise he had flashed in rookie ball. He posted a 1.93 ERA (2.00 FIP) in 11 starts at High-A Fort Myers after posting similarly dominant numbers at Low-A. Romero has more upside than any other Twins pitching prospect, thanks to a monster fastball that can hit 100 mph and a hard wipeout slider that led to a 26.9 percent strikeout rate. He is 6-foot, 215 pounds, and while he is not as tall as a traditional starter, he is broad enough to conceivably handle a starter's workload. If his changeup continues to come along and he can be more consistent with his command, Romero could someday pitch near the top of a rotation. He has a nice floor as a power reliever. This season will be an important opportunity for Romero to build on the 90.1 innings he logged last season, as his injury history and height will always tempt evaluators to peg him as a future reliever.
