Astros Release Alex Romero

Outfielder Alex Romero was released by the Astros, tweets Alyson Footer.  Romero had been signed to a minor league deal on December 8th, and went 4 for 11 this spring.  The 26-year-old hit .348/.416/.462 for the D'Backs' Triple a club last year, but struggled in the Majors.  Two years ago, Baseball America called Romero "the ideal fourth outfielder."

Someone will give him a shot to start to start somewhere. Do the Royals have an opening?

I’d sign him to start in Pawtucket, as a depth move.

Romero is actually a really good utility outfielder. He can play all three positions, and he’s a good slap hitter with speed. Plus, from what I remember over the last few years he’s pretty clutch.

I was surprised the Dbacks let him go.
