BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Niuman Romero has never hit in the minors—even by the low offensive standards of the shortstop position—but he can pick it anywhere in the infield. Assuming the Red Sox remain healthier than they were in 2010, they may never break the glass on Romero's case again.
2010 Niuman Romero can play all four infield positions consistently, which earned him a surprise September call-up; if he wants to stay up, he’ll need to spend some time in the cage, as he has never had an OPS higher than 753 in the minors.
