Fernando Romero allowed four runs on 10 hits over 4 1/3 innings on Sunday against the Rays. He struck out one and did not factor into the decision.
It was an uninspiring effort from Romero, who was recalled prior to the start. In his 11 games started this season, he pitched to a 4.69 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. Even if he again got a spot in the starting rotation, he wouldn't be worth consideration for fantasy purposes.
Fernando Romero has been recalled from Triple-A to make the Sunday start for the Twins.
Romero has pitched well in the minors overall this season and was solid in three appearances since his most recent demotion. He was needed when Aaron Slegers was placed on the DL. Romero has shown flashes of promise in the past, and he was sporting an ERA and WHIP of 4.38 and 1.34 with the Twins this season prior to the demotion.
Fernando Romero was optioned to Triple A on June 24th.
With a 7.54 ERA and 1.63 WHIP over the past month, it was time for Romero to go back to the minors. He had a blazing first few starts, but fizzled out shortly thereafter. Keep him on your radar if he gets it going again in the minors.
Fernando Romero threw six innings against the Rangers Friday, giving up four runs on four hits and four walks. He struck out four in the contest. The Twins got blown out 8-2, evening Romero’s record to 3-3.
Romero has taken a step backward over his last couple outings, and he now has a 4.38 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over ten starts. He also has 44 Ks in 51 1/3 innings pitched. He will start again on the road against the White Sox, which should cure his issues.
Fernando Romero pitched four innings Saturday against the Indians, giving up three runs on six hits and a walk. He served up two homers - one each to Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez. Romero did not last long enough to pick up the win, but the Twins bested the Indians 9-3.
Romero was pulled after only throwing 63 pitches, and there is no injury news about him, so just chalk this one up to Paul Molitor being conservative with the young pitcher. He will take a 4.17 ERA into his next start at home against the Rangers.
