A preseason first-team All-American, Roemer had one of the best seasons in Cal State Fullerton history in 2006, leading the Titans to Omaha at 13-2, 2.38 in a national-high 155 innings. He stumbled out of the gates in 2007, thanks in part to a broken pinky finger, before rallying late to get his numbers (8-5, 2.97) back in line with past performance. Roemer's best weapon is his command. He had plunked 58 batters in his career, many of them on purpose, as he'd rather hit a batter than walk him (40 career walks). While he doesn't have true elite, put-it-in-a-cup command, he has well-above-average control and pounds the strike zone with his fastball, which was fringe-average early but touched 93 mph and sat at 88-91 later in the year. His slider is above-average for the college level and plays average with mid-70s velocity and some depth. He spots his changeup and throws it for strikes. Roemer's spunky attitude can turn some opponents and scouts off, and his average stuff doesn't leave much room for error. But Titans coaches credit him with competing hard and helping the team while pitching through the pinky injury.
