Stefen Romero, a hard-hitting prospect for the Mariners, homered twice in the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars game. Romero entered the game in the sixth inning as a pinch hitter and homered to right. In his next at-bat, he did the same thing. Two at-bats, two homers.
Romero was drafted out of Oregon State as an infielder. He played second base early in his professional career. But with a glut of second basemen in the organization, the Mariners converted Romero to the outfield. Playing in the AFL is part of that transition. He played left field and right field for Triple A Tacoma this season, hitting .277 with 11 homers and 74 RBI in 93 games.
