Scouting Report

A 6-foot, 185-pound catcher committed to Vanderbilt, Romero has above-average power potential from the lefthanded batter’s box and a strong arm from behind the plate. Romero showed sub-2.00 pop times in workouts last summer and has good carry on his throws, but he’ll need to shorten up his exchange, refine his footwork and improve his throwing accuracy at the next level. He has solid receiving and blocking ability, with strong, quiet hands. Offensively, Romero has power, but he’ll need to simplify an offensive approach and setup that includes a deep load and slight, pre-pitch coil that can disrupt his timing in order to consistently take advantage of his potential.
