Nationals' Seth Romero: Goes on 60-day IL

The Nationals recalled Romero from Triple-A Rochester and placed him on the 60-day injured list Thursday due to a left calf strain. The calf injury is the latest in a growing list of on- and off-field setbacks for Romero, a 2017 first-round pick who has covered just 85.2 innings through his first five professional seasons. Before he was demoted to minor-league camp, Romero hadn't made any Grapefruit League appearances while dealing with back soreness, but it's a different issue that will keep him off the field for the first two months of the 2022 campaign. Once healthy, Romero is expected to head out on an extended rehab assignment, and he'll likely be optioned to Rochester whenever the Nationals choose to activate him from the 60-day IL.

Nationals' Seth Romero: Shut down with stiff back

Manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday that Romero has been shut down due to a stiff back, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports. Romero threw at spring training Monday but has been experiencing soreness since then. As a result, he'll have some time to rest to prevent a more serious injury. It's not yet clear how much time the left-hander is expected to be sidelined or whether the shutdown will impact his availability for the start of the regular season. Romero missed the start of the 2021 campaign with a rib injury and pitched exclusively in the minors after returning to game action.

Nationals' Seth Romero: Climbs to Triple-A

The Nationals promoted Romero from Double-A Harrisburg to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Grant Paulsen of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports. Romero appeared in three games at the big-league level in 2020, but that was largely a byproduct of the Nationals wanting a power arm out of the bullpen while the team still had visions of contending for the playoffs last season. With minor-league baseball returning to action in 2021, the Nationals shifted their focus back to developing Romero as a starter, but he didn't make his debut in the minors until July 1 while he recovered from a rib injury suffered in spring training. Upon completing a rehab assignment, Romero eventually settled at Harrisburg, where he submitted a 5.31 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 20.1 innings over six outings. While Romero's surface numbers were ugly, his outstanding peripherals (2.75 FIP, 27.2 K-BB%, 0.89 HR/9) were justification for the Nationals to bump the 25-year-old up to Rochester.

Nationals' Seth Romero: Progressing in throwing program

Romero (rib) recently resumed a throwing at the Nationals' extended spring training facility in Florida, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports. Romero had been shut down since April after suffering a stress fracture in his rib while working out at the Nationals' alternate site. The lefty will likely have several hurdles to clear in his recovery program until he's ready to head out on a rehab assignment, which will likely begin in the lower levels of the minors. Once he's fully built up his pitch count, Romero should slot into the rotation at Triple-A Rochester.
