Romero led the Eastern League in hits and on-base percentage this past season while batting .320/.417/.417 with five home runs and 48 RBI with the Orioles' Double-A affiliate. The 30-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2010 as a member of the Red Sox and will function as organizational depth. Fri, Dec 5, 2014 04:05:00 PM

Tigers signed INF Niuman Romero to a minor league contract.

The deal does not include an invitation to spring training. Romero played in the minors with the Phillies, Mets and Blue Jays in 2011. The 26-year-old owns a .250/.330/.318 batting line over parts seven seasons in the minors. He's strictly organizational fodder.

Red Sox designated infielder Niuman Romero for assignment.

Romero, 25, was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket just a few days ago but made only four at-bats. He was hitting .268/.346/.351 down on the farm and could pass through waivers and remain in the Red Sox's system.

Red Sox purchased the contract of infielder Niuman Romero from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Romero, who made his major league debut with the Indians last September, was hitting .268/.346/.351 for Pawtucket. He'll replace utilityman Angel Sanchez, who was traded to the Astros for Kevin Cash.

Red Sox acquired INF Niuman Romero from the Indians for cash considerations.

Romero, a 25-year-old Venezuelan, batted .240/.306/.292 with a home run, 35 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 119 games between Double-A and Triple-A last season. He will probably head straight to Triple-A Pawtucket but is unlikely to have a major impact for the Red Sox this year.

Indians purchased the contract of infielder Niuman Romero from Triple-A Columbus.

Romero batted .240/.306/.292 with one homer, 35 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 367 at-bats between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus this season. With his value coming more in his ability to play all over the infield, he doesn't offer any fantasy value.
