  • Fernando Romero: Headed to Japan

    Romero (not injury related) signed a contract with the Yokohama BayStars of Nippon Professional Baseball on Friday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander made 15 relief appearances in 2019, recording a 7.07 ERA and 2.14 WHIP over 14 innings.

    Romero (not injury related) was released by the Twins on Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. The 25-year-old spent 2020 on the restricted list after missing the entirety of spring training due to visa issues, and he's now in search of a new team.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Placed on restrictred list

    Romero, who missed all of spring training in February and March due to visa issues, was placed on the restricted list ahead of the 2020 season. Romero wasn't placed on the 60-man player pool as a result. Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said that Romero is not anticipated to arrive for training camp due to continued visa issues from the Dominican Republic. He may not be available this season as a result.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Visa issues continue

    Romero, who missed all of spring training in February and March due to visa issues traveling from the Dominican Republic, has not resolved his visa issues, Aaron Gleeman of TheAthletic.com reports. Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said that Romero is not anticipated to arrive for training camp next week. It sounds like his availability for the 60-game regular season is very much in doubt.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Placed on restricted list

    Romero was placed on the restricted list Monday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The transaction reflects the fact that visa issues have prevented Romero from reporting to camp. It's unclear what exactly those issues are or when he's expected to be able to join his teammates. Once he's cleared to do so, he'll presumably still need time to build up to regular-season shape.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Could miss spring training

    Romero could miss all of spring training due to a visa issue that has kept him in the Dominican Republic, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He's still not here and won't be joining us for the foreseeable future," said Twins manager Rocco Baldelli. Romero was not charged with a crime and isn't being penalized by the team, according to the Star Tribune. He could join the Twins when they play a spring game in the Dominican Republic on Mar. 7. Romero's extended absence almost ensures he'll begin the season at Triple-A when he does arrive to the U.S.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Delayed by visa issues

    Romero isn't expected to arrive at Twins camp until next week while he looks to secure a travel visa, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Assuming Romero doesn't hit any further snags with his immigration paperwork and is able to make the move from the Dominican Republic next week, he shouldn't find himself too far behind the Twins' other healthy pitchers during spring training. The right-hander will be vying for a spot in the team's Opening Day bullpen.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Activated off injured list

    Romero (back) was activated off the minor-league injured list Friday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Romero landed on the IL on June 21 with a lower-back strain but is able to rejoin Triple-A Rochester after a few weeks on the shelf. The 24-year-old has a 4.66 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 28:10 K:BB over 29 innings with the Red Wings this season.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Out with back injury

    Romero was placed on the minor-league injured list Friday with a lower-back strain, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Romero was optioned to Triple-A Rochester last week after a one-day stint in the majors and apparently suffered the injury when he fired 1.1 scoreless innings Wednesday. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but the 24-year-old will be eligible to be activated next Thursday.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Headed back to minors

    Romero was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. After just one day back with the Twins, Romero finds himself returning to Triple-A Rochester. With the Twins leading 10-1 in the eighth inning Thursday, the 24-year-old got his chance to pitch but gave up two runs on two hits and two walks while failing to record an out. The Twins called up Zack Littell in a corresponding move in an effort to bolster their bullpen.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Returns to majors

    Romero was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday. It's encouraging to see Romero back with the Twins, as he showed promise in his last stint in the majors, allowing four hits and no runs in five appearances with eight strikeouts at the beginning of May. Since then, he's been inconsistent with Triple-A Rochester, posting an ERA of 6.06 in 16.1 innings pitched, although he carries a 15:6 K:BB during that time. The 24-year-old will most likely be used in low-leverage situations and could find himself back in the minors if the Twins opt to bring back Adalberto Mejia (calf) once he's eligible to return.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Returns to minors

    Romero was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Romero, who didn't take the mound during either game of the twin bill, heads back to Rochester to make room for Willians Astudillo's return from a hamstring injury. The 24-year-old has a 5.63 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB over eight major-league innings this season.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Joining Twins for doubleheader

    Romero will be called up from Triple-A Rochester to serve as the 26th player in Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Romero had a chance to open the season with an impact role in Minnesota's bullpen, but was instead optioned to Triple-A at the end of spring training. The 24-year-old has a 4.32 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB over 8.1 innings to begin the season at Rochester.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Optioned to Triple-A

    Romero was optioned to Triple-A Rochester, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Minnesota management talked about Romero all spring as in their plans as an impact reliever, but he had two poor spring outings in a row, leaving him with a 8.38 ERA. It could be a short stint in the minors, as he was one of the few relievers in camp with minor-league options. It will also be interesting to see if the Twins keep Romero in the bullpen in Rochester.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Struggles in Sunday's spring outing

    Romero gave up five runs (four earned) and did not retire a batter while giving up three walks and a hit in Sunday's spring training loss to Toronto. "It's a good outing to wipe clean, because I've really enjoyed the way he's thrown the ball," manager Rocco Baldelli told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Romero, who has been moved to the bullpen after working as a starter last season, had given up one earned run in nine innings before Sunday's clunker. It sounds like he'll be given a mulligan, but he may need to impress in his final spring outing. It sounds like the Twins plan to use him as a reliever in many different spots. He could be in the closer mix as well; Baldelli hasn't indicated whether he'll use a single stopper or a bullpen-by-committee approach.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Strong spring as reliever

    Romero has had a strong spring in relief, allowing just two runs over seven innings with six strikeouts and two walks. "I'm hoping that, in time, he's going to be a very, very important piece we can look to get very important outs during the course of a game," manager Rocco Baldelli told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Romero has been moved to the bullpen after working as a starter last season. It sounds like the Twins plan to use him as a reliever in many different spots. He could possibly be in the closer mix as well as Baldelli hasn't indicated who he'll use at closer of if he'll use a bullpen-by-committee approach. With his impressive velocity and slider, Romero has some upside to emerge as the team's closer. However, he could also be shuffled between Triple-A and the majors since he has a minor-league option remaining.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Officially moving to bullpen

    Romero will move to the bullpen this season, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. A conversion to relief was rumored earlier in the offseason and confirmed by new manager Rocco Baldelli on Saturday. Romero impressed in his first five starts of his rookie campaign last season but finished with an unimpressive 4.69 ERA in 11 starts. The 24-year-old has the classic characteristics of a player who could thrive after such a move, as he owns a big fastball and a good slider but lacks a third pitch and has mediocre command. If he makes a smooth adjustment, he could become an important high-leverage reliever in Minnesota as soon as this season.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Could move to bullpen

    Minnesota is considering moving Romero to the bullpen, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "His mentality fits," Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey said. "When people watch him pitch, they see him in the bullpen, they see clear ability there. So we're open-minded to that." Romero had impressive velocity in his major-league debut last season, but he was previously thought more to be a candidate for the fifth starter spot in the rotation. He dazzled in his first five starts in the majors last season with a 1.88 ERA and 9.1 K/9. However, he ran out of gas in his next five starts with a 7.54 ERA, 6.0 K/9 and 2.0 HR/9. While Romero had an impressive 95.4 mph average fastball, he struggled with his control and command. He could be a dark horse for Minnesota's closer role if the team doesn't sign a veteran given his velocity, but his role and chances to make the team are uncertain. He likely needs more time at Triple-A.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Not slated for recall

    Romero will not join the Twins' expanded roster in September because he's approaching his innings limit, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. The hurler has compiled 133.1 frames between Triple-A Rochester and the majors. Romero has a 4.69 ERA in 55.2 innings (11 starts) in the latter but won't get a chance to make a better impression until the 2019 season, when he could compete for a rotation spot in spring training. Despite underwhelming command indicators (7.3 K/9, 3.1 BB/9), Romero, who turns 24 in December, could provide at least occasional mixed-league fantasy value if he can lock down a 2019 starting gig.

  • Twins' Fernando Romero: Heads back to minors

    Romero was optioned to Triple-A Rochester following Sunday's outing against the Rays, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Romero surfaced in the big leagues for a spot start after Aaron Slegers (shoulder) landed on the disabled list. Romero was knocked around for four runs on 10 hits while striking out one across 4.1 innings, and although he didn't factor into the decision, the Twins ended up winning 11-7 in extra innings. The 23-year-old right-hander has posted a 4.69 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 45 strikeouts over 55.2 innings with Minnesota this season.
