Twins' Fernando Romero: Could move to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 year 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Twins' Fernando Romero: Recalled ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romero was recalled from Triple-A Rochester ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Rays.

Romero assumed the rotation and active roster spot of Aaron Slegers (shoulder), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old right-hander previously made 10 starts for Minnesota earlier in the season, producing a 4.38 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across 51.1 innings. Romero could stick around as the big club's fifth starter until one of Slegers or Ervin Santana (finger) is ready to return from the DL.

Twins' Fernando Romero: Announced as Sunday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romero will start Sunday against the Rays, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Romero has a solid-but-unspectacular 4.38 in 51.1 innings for the Twins this season, though his 2.04 ERA in 39.2 innings for Triple-A Rochester is quite good. Aaron Slegers will hit the disabled list with shoulder inflammation in a corresponding move.
