Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 50 90-91 93 Heavy with some arm-side run, has some sneaky life, spots well, works low in the zone, will elevate in pitchers count.
CB 40 78-79 79 Inconsistent, when right has some mild break, 12-6 movement, will leave up and can get soft.
CH 60 82-84 84 Potential to be plus, features nice fade and tumble, good arm speed replication, quality velocity separation, will use in variety of counts, potential to miss bats especially against right hand hitters; command is inconsistent, still developing feel.

Recently traded to the Rays, the former Eastern Florida State star is a thickly built righty with the potential to be an innings eating starter. The velocity is average, but the heavy fastball pairs well with the change which has the potential to be a true out pitch. The curve development is key. Without further advancement, Romero might be destined for a bullpen role. If it can manifest into a minimum league-average offering, there is opportunity to remain a starter.
