A 5-10 reliever from Cartagena, Colombia, Romero is a deep sleeper option in the Cubs pipeline. He required two entire seasons to escape the Dominican Leagues. His first season in the states was a collective run through the sprinklers between Mesa, Eugene, and South Bend. in a bit over 40 innings, his ERA was a rather miniscule 0.86.

He's 23.  I'd send him to AA.  If he can't hack that as a reliever by mid-next year, then he's probably an org guy.  Either way, probably not much reason to leave him in the Carolina League.

Fits middle relief profile at ML level. High-floor prospect who is close to ML ready and could contribute quickly.
