Romine has made the Mariners' Opening Day roster, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. As expected, Romine will break camp with the Mariners in a super-utility role. Manager Scott Servais plans to use Romine liberally in order to keep his starters fresh, so the 32-year-old should see his fair share of action. Over 124 games with the Tigers in 2017, Romine hit a lackluster .233/.289/.336 across 348 plate appearances.
Romine is slated to be on the Mariners' Opening Day roster, although he's yet to be officially informed, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. The jack-of-all-trades' versatility is apparently too good to pass up for manager Scott Servais, who plans to deploy Romine liberally in order to keep his starters fresh. The 33-year-old hit an uninspiring .225 with one home run and seven RBI over 45 spring plate appearances, but his considerable major-league experience and defensive versatility appear to have won him a spot to open the season.
Romine (shoulder) is in the lineup at shortstop against Milwaukee on Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Romine has been sidelined for the past week with a partially dislocated left shoulder. The club was hopeful that he would only need a little time to recover from the injury, and it appears as though that was a sound line of thinking. There shouldn't be any concern over Romine's availability moving forward.
The Mariners hope Romine (shoulder) will be available for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Romine has been held out of exhibition play since March 13 while contending with the partially dislocated left shoulder. The Mariners don't appear too concerned about the injury and hope a week of rest will take care of the issue. Romine is competing with Taylor Motter this spring for the Mariners' top utility gig.
Romine doesn't expect to miss much time after incurring a shoulder subluxation in Tuesday's spring game, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. The super utility man reportedly has dealt with this issue before, and the team isn't overly concerned since he missed just a handful of games the last time it happened. The plan is for Romine to simply rest for now and get evaluated again at a later date. A firmer timetable for his return should emerge once he's re-examined.
