Nationals' Tommy Romero: Opening season in minors
The Nationals reassigned Romero to minor-league camp Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
The 25-year-old right-hander is expected to report to Triple-A Rochester, where he'll likely continue his development as a starter or multi-inning reliever. Romero reached the big leagues for the first time in 2022 but struggled mightily, as he turned in a 10.80 ERA and 2.40 WHIP while giving up a whopping seven home runs and issuing nine walks in just 8.1 innings between stops with the Rays and Nationals....

Nationals' Tommy Romero: Gets chance with Nationals
Romero and the Nationals agreed Wednesday to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Romero will get a chance at cracking the Nationals' Opening Day bullpen after striking a deal with the team Wednesday. The 24-year-old appeared in four games last season with the Rays and Nationals, surrendering 10 runs over 8.1 innings in those outings. Considering his age and Washington's lack of elite arm talent, Romero has a solid shot at making the major-league roster.... See More ... See Less
Tommy Romero: Non-tendered after DFA
The Nationals declined to tender Romero a contract for 2023, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Romero had previously been designated for assignment, so this move doesn't come as a major surprise. While Romero's first season in the majors was rocky between Tampa Bay and Washington, he has enjoyed success at Triple-A and another team may give him a shot at a depth role in spring training....

Nationals' Tommy Romero: Designated for assignment
Romero was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Tuesday.
Romero made just one appearance in the majors for Washington, giving up eight runs (six earned) over 3.2 innings against Philadelphia on Oct. 1. He found more success in Triple-A last season, recording a 3.24 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 86 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Tommy Romero: Returned to Triple-A
Romero was returned to Triple-A Rochester after starting the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Romero served as the 29th man for the Nationals doubleheader and was crushed for five home runs and six earned runs across 3.1 innings to take the loss as the start in Game 2. While it's a limited sample, he has a disastrous 10.80 ERA with a 7:9 K:BB across 8.1 big-league innings on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Tommy Romero: Starting Game 2 on Saturday
Romero will start Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday against the Phillies after Friday's night game was postponed, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Friday's night game was postponed due to the remnants of Hurricane Ian. Romero has a 1.59 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 11:9 K:BB in 17 innings at Triple-A in September. He has not thrown five or more innings in an outing since throwing 5.1 innings Sept. 16.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Tommy Romero: Starting Friday's nightcap
Romero will start Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Romero was called up to serve as the 29th man for Friday's twin bill and will start the nightcap for the Nationals. The 25-year-old last pitched for Rochester on Monday and threw 1.1 innings, so he may have some limitations while throwing on three days rest.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Tommy Romero: Promoted for twin bill
Romero was called up to serve as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The 25-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Nationals in late August and will now receive a look in the majors. Romero has served as both a starter and reliever this season and could provide length for Washington in the doubleheader.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Tommy Romero: Scooped up by Nats
The Nationals claimed Romero off waivers from the Rays on Thursday and optioned him to Triple-A Rochester, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Romero was roughed up in his three MLB appearances this season and had moved to the bullpen at Triple-A Durham following the All-Star break, but expect the 25-year-old right-hander to get stretched back into a starting role as he joins a new organization. With prospect Cade Cavalli set to join the Nationals this weekend for his big-league debut, Rochester already has a rotation spot open for Romero to potentially claim. Over his final 13 appearances (four starts) for Durham, Romero was lights out, as he produced an 0.64 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 23:7 K:BB across 28.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Tommy Romero: Dropped from 40-man roster
The Rays designated Romero for assignment Tuesday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.
Romero received the chance to make his MLB debut in April as a starter, but after lasting just 1.2 innings while issuing five walks in that outing, the 25-year-old has been trending downward ever since. He went on to make two additional relief appearances for the big club but has otherwise spent the season at Triple-A Durham, where he struggled in a starting role before ultimately moving to the bullpen. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a 3.51 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 58:25 K:BB in 66.2 innings at Triple-A this season, and his status as a prospect of some repute could prompt another organization to put in a waiver claim for him now that he's off the Rays' 40-man roster....

Rays' Tommy Romero: Optioned to Triple-A
Romero was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
The move clears space for Luis Patino (oblique) to return from the injured list. Romero made just a single appearance during his latest stint in the big leagues, striking out one in a scoreless inning of relief Thursday against the Red Sox.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Tommy Romero: Called up Tuesday
Romero was called up from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday.
Romero will return to the big leagues after making two appearances with the Rays in April, surrendering four runs over 3.2 innings while striking out four. The 25-year-old has produced a 3.98 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 46 punchouts over 54.1 frames with Durham this season. He'll help replace Josh Fleming (oblique), who was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Tommy Romero: Sent down Sunday
Romero was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Romero made his major-league debut as a starter Tuesday against the Athletics and allowed three runs on two hits and five walks while striking out one in 1.2 innings. He pitched the final two innings of Sunday's win over the White Sox and allowed a run on a hit and no walks while striking out three. While the 24-year-old was more effective Sunday, he'll head to the minors after the Rays traded for Javy Guerra on Saturday. Although he was sent down Sunday, he remains one of the team's top prospects and should be in the mix to rejoin the Rays at some point.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Tommy Romero: Following opener
Romero is expected to throw multiple innings behind opener J.P. Feyereisen on Sunday against the White Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Romero struggled in his MLB debut Tuesday against the Athletics, giving up three runs and walking five batters while recording just five outs. The Rays will hope for more from him this time around but won't rely on him as a conventional starter. The fact that he'll follow an opener means he won't have to last five innings to earn a win....

Rays' Tommy Romero: Covers 1.2 frames in debut
Romero allowed three runs on two hits and five walks across 1.2 innings during Tuesday's 9-8 extra-inning win over the A's. He had one strikeout and didn't factor in the decision.
The 24-year-old and opposing starter Adam Oller both made their major-league debuts, and neither pitcher was able to make it through the second inning. Romero is one of Tampa Bay's top pitching prospects, but he struggled with his control and threw just 31 of his 59 pitches for strikes. The Rays are down Luis Patino (oblique), Ryan Yarbrough (groin) and Shane Baz (elbow) in the rotation, though that doesn't necessarily mean Romero will receive another chance to start following Tuesday's poor performance....

Rays' Tommy Romero: Call-up official
The Rays recalled Romero from Triple-A Durham in advance of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Athletics in Tampa Bay.
Tampa Bay placed Luis Patino (oblique) on the injured list in a corresponding move. With the Rays now down three members from their projected Opening Day rotation in Patino, Ryan Yarbrough (groin) and Shane Baz (elbow), Romero could have a decent amount of leash in the Tampa Bay rotation, provided he doesn't lay an egg Tuesday in his MLB debut. Though the Athletics erupted for 13 runs in a blowout win Monday, the lack of established bats in their lineup makes for a soft landing spot for Romero, who dazzled in the minors last season with a 2.61 ERA and 145:31 K:BB across 110.1 innings. He'll make for an intriguing streaming option this week.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Tommy Romero: Slated to start Tuesday
The Rays announced that Romero will start Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Romero resides on the Rays' taxi squad for the time being, but he'll be officially added to the 28-man active roster following Monday's series opener with Oakland. As expected, he'll slot into the rotation as a replacement for Ryan Yarbrough (groin), who was placed on the injured list earlier Monday. The 24-year-old Romero was one of the Rays' top arms in the upper minors in 2021, as he finished the season with a 2.61 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 145:31 K:BB across 110.1 innings between stops at Triple-A Durham and Double-A Montgomery....

Rays' Tommy Romero: Part of taxi squad, for now
The Rays added Romero to their taxi squad Monday, setting the stage for a potential call-up at some point during the team's four-game series with Oakland.
Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reported Sunday that Romero was en route to joining the Rays' active roster, but the 24-year-old right-hander will remain in limbo for the time being as a member of the taxi squad. Tampa Bay recalled reliever Ryan Thompson from Triple-A Durham on Monday and placed Ryan Yarbrough (groin) on the injured list in a corresponding move, but the move might have been made as a means of having a fresh arm out of the bullpen for the series opener with the Rays. Yarbrough's turn in the rotation is scheduled to come up Tuesday, so Tampa Bay could still formally recall Romero from Durham to start that day in what would be his MLB debut. Romero produced a 2.61 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 110.1 innings between Durham and Double-A Montgomery in 2021.... See More ... See Less
