Is it really all that unusual for relievers to start in the minors until just about right before their call up?  Papelbon, FWIW, was groomed that way.  I guess that's 15 years ago so that model is out of date, but if a pitcher has more than 2 pitches, he need some innings to use and work on all of them.

No, it's not unusual.  Many even get a few starts in MLB in garbage time before they get converted.  It's too early to say where Romero ends up given his injuries.  They've put him on a weird track even this year - skipped Wilmington, now getting roughly a month in AAA.
