And who said this team didn’t make any moves at the trade deadline?
The 36-year-old left handed reliever comes over from the Indians farm system as the Oriole send minor league infielder Carlos Rojas to Cleveland. Romero signed a minor league deal with the Tribe last month. Mike Axisa of MLBTradeRumors.com points out that Romero pitched to a 2.74 ERA in 23 innings at Triple-A this season after giving up 9 runs in 8 innings for the Cardinals earlier this season.
But fear not, the Orioles are expected to use Romero as a lefty specialist. He has held lefties to a .218/.313/.293 slashline in 1, 121 plate appearances over his career.
