Romero pitched effectively out of the bullpen for Nevada as a freshman, striking out more than a batter an inning, before transferring to junior college powerhouse Yavapai College for the 2016 season. At 6-foot, 185 pounds, Romero shows excellent athleticism on the mound with the makings of four solid pitches. He put up strong numbers for Yavapai, posting a 3.82 ERA and yielding only four homeruns in 77.2 regular season innings. He pitched even more effectively during the post-season, helping the Roughriders capture the regional championship. Romero works with a fastball in the 89-92 mph range and reaches as high as 94, showing good sink. His best secondary pitch is his changeup, which is at least an average. He has a clean delivery and his arm works well. While some scouts see Romero as a bullpen arm at the next level, multiple evaluators have compared him to Jason Vargas, as a shorter lefthander with a durable arm capable of pitching at the back end of a big league rotation.
