Happy birthday, Jason Romano

New, 37 comments

Happy birthday to Jason Romano, who turns 31 today.

Romano was a supplemental first round pick of the Rangers in the 1997 draft, and after a terrific age 20 season in high-A, he was a pretty well regarded prospect, checking in at #68 on BA's 2000 top 100 prospect list.

However, he never really built on that season, and ended up getting dealt in 2002, along with Gabe Kapler, for Todd Hollandsworth and Dennys Reyes.

Romano bounced back and forth between the majors and minors from 2002 through 2005 as a utility guy, and apparently retired from baseball after the 2007 season.
