Romero is committed to Florida, but he's not likely to get to school because of his bat, one of the best in a competitive pool of hitters in the Southeast. Romero is active in the batter's box and has an average frame at 5-foot-11, 190 pounds. He has hand strength, a short swing and hand-eye coordination that allow him to lash line drives from gap to gap, and some scouts project him to have above-average power. Others see him as an above-average hitter with average power and wonder where he profiles. His somewhat thick lower half and below-average speed will move him off shortstop, and he may not have enough power for third. He has the lateral quickness to stay in the dirt, possibly moving to second, and his plus arm makes some scouts wonder if he should try catching. Romero has resisted those suggestions to this point. Clubs that believe in his power see him as a third baseman and could jump on him early.
