A natural at the dish, he can hit for a high average and make consistency contact in the minors. Also displays pretty good power. Usually has the right approach at the plate.
Is new to playing the outfield, as he used to be an infielder but was never good enough defensively. Would be an even bigger threat with the bat if he walked more.
Good-hitting outfielder with a little upside.

Romero gets two hits out of cleanup spot | 06/04/2014 3:43 PM
Batting in the cleanup spot, Stefen Romero singled and tripled in Wednesday's win over the Braves.
He would have scored a run, as well, but James Jones pinch-ran for him in the eighth after his one-out triple. The nice day brought Romero's season line up to .214/.264/.368. Cole Gillespie also had a pair of base knocks for the Mariners Wednesday.
Stefen Romero fans four times | 04/12/2014 1:32 AM
Stefen Romero struck out all four times he was up Friday against the A's.
He struck out on changeups from Tommy Milone in each of his first three at-bats. Romero won a spot on Seattle's roster with a big spring, but it'd make more sense to let him play regularly in Triple-A than to keep him in spot duty in the majors. He's 2-for-13 so far.
Romero stays hot | 03/26/2014 2:24 PM
Stefen Romero had another big game on Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI against the Royals.
The home run was Romero's fourth of the spring and second in the last three games. The 25-year-old is batting .296/.321/.648 with three doubles, two triples, four home runs and 13 RBI through 54 at-bats this spring, but has also posted a 13/1 K/BB ratio. Romero saw time in right field and at first base in Sunday's game, indicating that the Mariners are still considering him as a potential bench player to open the season.
Stefen Romero belted a three-run walkoff homer off Evan Scribner on Sunday, leading the Mariners to a 6-4 victory over the Athletics in Cactus League play.
Romero's dramatic blast came as a pinch-hitter. He's hitting .283/.298/.630 in 46 at-bats this spring, but has posted a troublesome 11/1 K/BB ratio. While he could stick as a bench bat for the M's, he may be better suited playing everyday at the Triple-A level.
