Baseball: DeNA acquires former Twins pitcher Romero

The DeNA BayStars have acquired former Minnesota Twins right-hander Fernando Romero on a one-year deal worth a reported 75 million yen ($724,000), with a team option for a second year, the Central League club said Thursday. A native of the Dominican Republic, Romero spent two years in the major leagues from 2018, going 3-4 with a 5.17 ERA in 26 games, but did not pitch this past season. “He’s young, 26, and both his fastball and breaking pitches are rated as top-level,” said DeNA chief executive Kazuaki Mihara. The BayStars see him as a candidate for their starting rotation.
