Romine named FSL Player of the Year

Posted on: September 1, 2009 8:52 am
Following in the footsteps of his more celebrated fellow catching prospect Jesus Montero, Austin Romine has been named the player of the year in the Florida State League (High A).

Considered the best all around catching prospect in the system, the 20 year old Romine posted a .274/12/70 season in '09. His defense also showed a drastic improvement, as he raised his CS% from 20% last year to a more than respectable 32% in 2009.

Yanks look to be flat loaded for the future at one of the more difficult positions to fill.

Romine named FSL Player of the Year

I saw this and although I am happy he won, there were 1-2 more deserving players. Oh well. He is one of my favorite prospects so I will be able to live through this. Good job by him.
