Rayber Romero Suspended for 2022 Season

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced that Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Rayber Romero has been suspended for 60 games, which will cover the entire 2022 season. He was slated to play for the Florida Complex League Pirates this season. He tested positive for Stanozolol.

Romero, who just turned 20 years old over the weekend, has mostly played second base during his career, but he has also played left field, shortstop and third base. He debuted in pro ball in 2019 in the Dominican Summer League, where he hit .314/.439/.400 in 31 games. After the canceled 2020 season, he moved up to the FCL last year, where he batted .270/.447/.324 in 39 games, with 31 walks and 31 runs scored. He has been at Pirate City this year.

I wonder if they knew it was coming, in which case surprised they didn’t pull a Bae move where they “rostered” him on a full season club. But he’s also probably not Bae upside.


I was just about to ask whether he would be allowed to stay at Pirate City. It’s not a huge deal in the long run assuming he learns his lesson.


Gosh Wally, maybe they won’t check us
