Somebody needs to have the "fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life" talk with Seth.  Then again, when you give a self-centered a-hole deliquent a couple million bucks, you shouldn't be surprised with a negative outcome.  Now he'll be 24 and starting over again, and I'm sure his work ethic and maturity will actually be worse after his rehab.  Maybe he'll just pull a Colton Willems and retire at low-A.

It's nice to hear something positive about Romero's change in attitude and focus as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.

I had written him off completely, so if he pans out at all, I'll be pleased.

Any update? Coming up on a year after surgery. Think they'll pitch him this year?

seems like this is the make or break year for Romero.

CBS reports:

Seth Romero is yet another recent first-round pick with ample variance. His comes in the form of injury and makeup concerns. We ranked him fifth in the organization because the league sources we talked to believe Romero has benefitted from the grueling Tommy John surgery rehab process. There's upside here -- potentially a lot of it, if he truly has matured.

last update I saw was that he was at the instructional league for the winter.

Hes a LHP so he'll get plenty of chances. No reason to rush

Two years later, however, the lefty is currently with the big league team in Flushing, Queens, New York’s Citi Field, as part of the taxi squad that’s accompanying big league clubs during this (planned) 60-game pandemic season.

“He’s been throwing the ball well in Fredericksburg,” Nationals’ skipper Davey Martinez told reporters after announcing on Monday afternoon which of the players in the Nats’ 60-Man Player Pool joined the team on their first road trip of the year. “I wanted to put eyes on him and get him up here, but if somebody goes down, he’s another guy who we feel like can help us in the bullpen or even spot start.”

TBH, I had given him only a little more thought than the last powerball ticket I bought.  I've not had expectations that he would be of any help since he was sent home for attitude adjustment a couple of years ago.  Maybe the TJ led him to realize he likes baseball and it is worth the discipline it takes to make it.

With Freeman out he may get his shot sooner rather than later.
