Astros released OF Alex Romero.

Romero was a non-roster invitee in Astros camp and failed to make a positive impression on the club. The 26-year-old has batted just .239/.279/.339 in 299 major league plate appearances over the last two seasons. Still, he's likely to find a home with another organization.

Alex Romero went 4-for-7 and ripped a tie-breaking two-run double in the top of the 12th on Thursday night as the D-Backs went on to beat the Pirates 11-6.

The Diamondbacks trailed 6-3 after six innings, but battled back to a tie and sent the game to extra innings, where they eventually gained a decisive victory thanks to a five-run outburst in the 12th. Romero, who doubled, drove in three runs and stole a base in the game, watched his average shoot from .255 to .290.

Diamondbacks recalled outfielder Alex Romero from Triple-A Reno.

Romero takes over for Eric Byrnes, who was placed on the disabled list Friday in a corresponding move. He'll get a decent crack at playing time and might actually do a little something with the opportunity. In 279 Triple-A at-bats, he was batting .348 with two home runs and 47 RBI.

Alex Romero, who suffered a fractured hand during winter ball, has been cleared to start taking soft toss.
