Prospect watch

Stefen Romero

Outfielder, Class AAA Tacoma

Selected in the 12th round of the 2010 MLB draft out of Oregon State University

Even though he has played in 60 MLB games this season, Romero is still considered a prospect. His best baseball is ahead of him. After starting the season in the big leagues as a bench player, Romero was sent back down to play every day. He’s put up solid offensive numbers with the steady playing time. In 34 games, he’s hitting .359 (51 for 142) with 11 homers and 35 RBI and a 1.059 OPS. Romero could return to the big leagues on Monday with the September expansion.

Ex-Mariner of the week

Abraham Almonte

Outfielder, San Diego Padres

He opened the season as the Mariners’ starting center fielder. But after struggling in the first 27 games and hitting .198 (21 for 106) with 40 strikeouts, he was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma. He was traded along with pitcher Stephen Kohlscheen to the Padres in exchange for outfielder Chris Denorfia. Almonte has played in 20 games with the Padres and is hitting .303 (20 for 66) with three doubles, two homers and seven runs batted in.
