Twins infielder Andrew Romine exercised the opt-out clause in his contract and has been officially released.
Romine has 10 years of MLB experience between the Angels, Tigers, Mariners, and Rangers. The 35-year-old owns a .235/.291/.301 over 583 games. He joined Minnesota for Spring Training but tallied just five hits over 27 at-bats.
Andrew Romine started in left field in Thursday night's win over the Blue Jays. He went 3-for-5 with one run scored.
After this three hit game, Romine has a grand total of four hits on the season with a BA of .174. Nothing to see here.
Andrew Romine finished 1-for-5 with a double in Detroit's 8-6 loss to Oakland.
Romine has now strung together three straight games with at least a hit since being moved up to the top of the order. All in all, he's raised his line from .214/.267/.381 to a more respectable .260/.308/.411 over the past 10 games prompting the move to lead-off. Romine also has one home run and eight RBIs though he has not been particularly successful on the base-paths, stealing only one out of four attempts.
Andrew Romine started at shortstop and went 3-for-6 with an RBI and two runs scored in the Tigers 19-9 win versus Seattle.
In a utility role for the Tigers, Romine has played in 15 games and batted .250 with one home run and five RBIs. He has been seeing time at centerfield and shortstop this season and getting regular playing time with the Tigers various injuries this season.
Romine played first base Thursday afternoon against the White Sox as V-Mart was scratched hours before game time. Miggy moved to DH, Romine moved to 1B and Tyler Collins moved to CF.
Romine is incredibly unproductive, boasting a .222 AVG with one HR and six RBI on the season. He does not get enough regular playing time to be fantasy relevant and does not provide enough value to plug into DFS lineups. Do not play Romine anywhere.
