|Stefen Romero 'in the mix' for spot on Mariners' roster |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/24/14) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik has already talked about outfielder Stefen Romero potentially being part of the team's plan in 2014. On Monday, it was manager Lloyd McClendon's turn to weigh in on the 25-year-old outfielder, who has slugged .506 in 330 minor-league games.
"I like what I see," McClendon said, per The News Tribune. "He’s certainly in the mix. He’s going to get an opportunity to see what he can do."

(2/4/14) While the Mariners continue to be linked to free agent outfielder Nelson Cruz, if the team is unsuccessful at landing a right-handed power bat, then the team could look internally at prospect Stefen Romero to help fill that void.
"We’ve talked about Stefen all winter," Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said, per The News Tribune. "This guy could really be a player for us. He gives you power. He gives you the ability to hit. It’s up to him."
Romero has posted solid offensive numbers in the minors, batting .306 with a .506 slugging percentage in 330 games. However, it's his defense which could keep him from securing a spot on the Mariners' roster this spring.
Romero transitioned from second base to left field last season, and his defense still needs to catch up to his offense.
"A work in progress," said Chris Gwynn, the club's director of player development. "Some plays, he looks like he’s been out there a long time. Some plays, it doesn’t look like he’s been out there a long time."
|Mariners add four to 40-man roster |

(11/21/13) The Mariners added first baseman Ji-Man Choi, pitcher Logan Bawcom and outfielders Stefen Romero and James Jones to the team's 40-man roster Wednesday.
Choi hit .295/.394/.535 with 18 home runs and 85 RBI in 424 at-bats across three levels last season. Romero hit .277/.331/.448 with 11 home runs and 74 RBI in 375 at-bats with Triple-A Tacoma. Jones hit .275/.347/.419 with six home runs, 46 RBI and 28 stolen bases in 363 at-bats with Double-A Jackson.
Bawcom went 1-4 with a 2.91 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 64:24 K:BB ratio in 65 innings over 51 appearances with Triple-A Tacoma.

|Romero turning heads |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/13) The Seattle Times called Mariners second baseman Stefen Romero a prospect to watch at the start of spring training, and he made sure all eyes were on him Thursday against the Royals. Romero was the key to a 12-3 blowout win, as he went 4 for 5 in the game with seven runs batted in. He slugged two home runs, a grand slam and a three-run shot, and added a double and a single to come up just short of a cycle. He raised his spring training batting averaging to .500 with the performance.
|The Mariners looked like they had a real find in Stefen Romero when the former 12th-rounder out of Oregon State hit .352 with 23 homers between two minor-league stops in 2012. Yeah, one of those stops was the California League, where most every hitter puts up arcade-like numbers, but Romero was just as productive at Double-A Jackson, hitting .347 with 12 homers. Baseball America went so far as to call him the best pure hitter in the Mariners system, ranking him ahead of even Brad Miller. So then why did he hit an uninspiring .277 with 11 homers at Triple-A Tacoma last year? He was in another hitter-friendly league and shouldn't have had much of a learning curve at age 24. Granted, he was transitioning to the outfield, but that's not much of a consolation to Fantasy owners, who would have preferred to see him stick at second base. Now 25, Romero is at risk of getting passed over if he doesn't force his way into the picture soon. Outside of dynasty and the deepest of AL-only leagues, you can wait and see on him.
