Twins' Fernando Romero: Back up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins recalled Romero from Triple-A Rochester ahead of Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Romero will be up with the big club for the second time this season after he previously made a two-inning appearance in relief over the weekend while serving as the Twins' 26th man in their doubleheader with the Orioles. Minnesota also recalled Kohl Stewart from Rochester to make the start Wednesday, but since it's unlikely he'll be asked to work deep into the contest, Romero could be called upon to cover a couple of innings out of the bullpen.

Twins' Fernando Romero: Joining Twins for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 and has a 8.38 ERA this spring training. 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: Not viewed as closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romero will be used in a multi-inning role to begin the season and is unlikely to close games, MLB.com reports. "I don't know that we were viewing him as the back-end guy right at the outset," said chief baseball officer Derek Falvey.

Romero has had two poor outings in a row as he gave up four runs while retiring two batters with two walks Wednesday. It sounds like he'll still make the 25-man roster, but it's still possible he could begin the season in the minors. While he may not be the closer initially, he still has upside to take over the role later this season after the Twins moved him to the bullpen this spring.

Twins' Fernando Romero: Struggles in Sunday's spring outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 had give 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. 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.
