Drafted in the 5th round (178th overall) by the Los Angeles Angels in 2007 (signed for $128,700)
As much talent as Arizona State could put into this draft--with Smith, Sogard, Spencer and Andrew Romine all possible third- to sixth-round picks--the 2008 team will make more of an impact, both in terms of current sophomores (such as first baseman Brett Wallace and catcher Petey Parramore) and recruits (too many to mention). Romine could be part of that Sun Devils squad unless a team strongly believes in his bat, because if he falls far in the draft he would likely end up coming back as a senior. He's a premium defender in a year short on those in the college crop, with excellent arm strength and accuracy to go with good hands and range. Offensively, he has little power (.382 slugging) and had to rally to get over .300. He runs well (leading the team with 18 stolen bases), controls the strike zone and handles the bat, but at his best he profiles as a No. 8 or No. 9 hitter. The son of ex-Red Sox outfielder Kevin Romine needs to add strength, some of which he lost due to surgery in January 2006 to have a rib removed. Romine had thoracic outlet syndrome, which led to a blood clot in his shoulder.
