Romine exercised his opt-out clause Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Twins' Andrew Romine: Signs on with Minnesota
Romine agreed Tuesday with the Twins on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training.
After letting Marwin Gonzalez and Ehire Adrianza walk in free agency this winter, the Twins were short on utility options, so Romine could get the chance to help fill the void if he impresses the coaching staff in spring training. While Romine likely won't be counted on to play regularly unless the Twins are without multiple everyday players over a prolonged stretch, he offers value off as a bench piece thanks to his switch-hitting and ability to play every position except pitcher and catcher....

White Sox's Andrew Romine: Back in action Friday
Romine is starting at second base and batting ninth in Friday's intrasquad game.
The veteran infielder was held out of Thursday's intrasquad action due to a sore shoulder, but his quick return to the field indicates it was a minor concern.

White Sox's Andrew Romine: Nursing sore shoulder

The White Sox announced Monday that Romine will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.
Romine's positional flexibility should come in handy for the White Sox, though the 34-year-old probably isn't a serious candidate to see everyday at-bats at any point during the abbreviated season.

Romine signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Monday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Andrew Romine: Hits open market
Romine was granted his release Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Phillies' Andrew Romine: Lands in Philadelphia
Romine signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Romine is the classic journeyman utility player. He's gotten at least some big-league time for nine straight seasons with three different organizations but owns just a .235/.291/.301 career line and has only once received at least 300 plate appearances. The only time he's posted a wRC+ greater than 71 came in just 21 plate appearances back in 2012. He's played all nine positions at some point in his career, giving him multiple avenues onto the roster, but he's unlikely to play a significant role in Philadelphia this season.... See More ...
