Stefen Romero has agreed to a contract with the Orix Buffaloes of Japan.
It's a seven-figure guarantee, per FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, which is probably much more than Romero would have been able to find in North America. The 28-year-old outfielder batted .235/.263/.294 in 19 plate appearances this past season for the Mariners. Nov 24 - 12:42 PM

Mariners optioned OF Stefen Romero to Triple-A Tacoma.

Romero was only up in the majors for a couple days this time around. The 27-year-old is a .195/.242/.307 career hitter in 233 plate appearances at the MLB level.
Aug 23 - 5:22 PM

Mariners recalled OF Stefen Romero from Triple-A Tacoma.

The 27-year-old outfielder has crushed the ball at Triple-A but struggled in his limited time with the M's this season, slashing a mere .200/.188/.267 in 16 plate appearances. He'll work in a reserve outfielder role, limiting any potential fantasy value.
Aug 19 - 7:15 PM

Mariners optioned OF Stefen Romero to Triple-A Tacoma.

Romero was with the big club for a little over a week and batted .200 (3-for-15) with a double and two RBI. He'll head back to the minors now that Ketel Marte is back from the disabled list.
Jun 6 - 4:13 PM

Mariners recalled OF Stefen Romero from Triple-A Tacoma.

Romero will take the place of the injured Leonys Martin on the Mariners roster. The 27-year-old outfielder was hitting .358/.417/.601 with seven homers and 34 RBI in 39 games at Triple-A. He could be interesting in AL-only leagues, but is unlikely to see enough playing time to be relevant in mixed leagues.

Mariners optioned OF Stefen Romero to Triple-A Tacoma.

Romero had a nice spring, but he was always a longshot for a spot in the Mariners' outfield mix. The 27-year-old will operate this season as organizational depth.
Mar 28 - 12:26 PM

Stefen Romero (back) is in the Mariners' Cactus League lineup on Monday.

Romero missed a couple of days with a stiff back. It was obviously minor. The 27-year-old outfielder is batting .480 with a 1.180 OPS in 25 at-bats this spring as he tries to claim a spot on the Mariners' bench.
Mar 21 - 10:38 AM

Stefen Romero (back) went through a full workout on Sunday.

Assuming he comes out of it well, Romero will return to Cactus League action on Monday after missing a few days with a stiff back. Romero is hitting .480 so far this spring but still may be on the outside looking in when it comes to an Opening Day roster spot.
Mar 20 - 3:23 PM

Stefen Romero will not play Friday due to some back tightness.

He's not in either of Saturday's tentative split-squad lineups, either, but this shouldn't be more than a day-to-day thing. Romero has forced his way into the conversation for a bench spot by hitting .480 so far this spring.
Mar 18 - 12:52 PM

Stefen Romero tallied three singles and a run scored Tuesday against the Angels.

Romero is now batting .480 with a 1.180 OPS in 25 at-bats this spring. He had a little hiccup with a knee bruise earlier this month, but the 27-year-old first baseman and outfielder is past that now. He will continue fighting for a spot on the Mariners' bench.
Mar 15 - 8:29 PM

Stefen Romero (knee) has been cleared to play in Sunday's Cactus League game.

Romero had to leave a game last week after he was hit in the knee by a line drive, but it was obviously just a minor setback. The 27-year-old is competing for a bench job this spring.
Mar 6 - 9:41 AM

Stefan Romero (knee) is expected to resume workouts on Saturday.

He was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Padres after getting hit in the knee with a line drive. It appears to have been just a minor issue though, as Romero will get back to work on Saturday with the goal of earning a spot on the M's bench.
Mar 5 - 10:04 AM

Stefen Romero left Thursday's game against the Padres with a bruised knee.

He was playing first base when Jon Jay hit a line drive off his leg that rolled all the way to second base and turned into a double play. Romero singled and walked in two plate appearances before exiting in the fifth inning. Until we hear more, consider Romero day-to-day.
Mar 3 - 9:11 PM

Stefen Romero has taken some ground balls at first base.

Romero played a little first base in college but the Mariners have mostly used him as a corner outfielder. Seattle already has plenty of depth at first base with Adam Lind, Jesus Montero, Dae-Ho Lee and Gaby Sanchez all competing for roles. Unless Romero does something spectacular this spring, he'll likely begin the year in the minor leagues.
Feb 22 - 9:33 AM

Stefen Romero (shoulder) has resumed some baseball activities.

Romero suffered a contusion behind his left shoulder when he ran into the outfield wall last week, but it sounds like he has a shot to return before the season ends. "I haven't really swung at all since I tried to do it the next day after it happened, but I don't think I could swing now," Romero said. "Thank goodness it wasn't a fracture or anything with structural damage. That's good."
