Yanks Officially Sign J.C. Romero


The Yanks have signed Romero to a minor-league deal. He was just released by the Nationals earlier today. Romero began his season with the Philadelphia Phillies, but was released in June. He then signed with the Nationals…who then released him this morning.

Romero is very good if they use him solely to get lefties out. Over his career, lefties have hit only .215 AVG, and they have a very meager .290 SLG% against Romero.

This should provide some left-handed relief depth that the Yanks so dearly need with Feliciano and Marte out.

  1. Good move i’m all for it.

  2. I agree Matt. I like the Romero signing. He has winning experience and is a second lefty which the team desperately needs. He can also play multiple roles in this bullpen once he gets called up

  3. agreed No harm in this pickup.
