On July 31, 2018, just a few hours before the trade deadline for Major League Baseball, the Chicago Cubs made a deal with the Washington Nationals to acquire Brandon Kintzler in exchange for Ricky Romero.
Romero struggled in 2019 and was finally diagnosed with a ruptured ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow in his right throwing arm.
Despite having a productive finish to the year with the Potomac Nationals, Washington’s High-A club, Romero had a difficult year overall.
He had Tommy John surgery to restore the damaged ligament, but he won’t be able to play again until 2020 because of the COVID-19 epidemic. He will miss the rest of the 2019 season.
Romero made it to the Triple-A level of the minor leagues in 2021, moving up from the Double-A level with the Harrisburg Senators to the Triple-A level with the Rochester Red Wings.
He had a total of 38 relief appearances, all of which were in games, and had an earned run average of 2.62 across both of these levels.
Romero was called up to play in the major leagues for the first time on September 23, 2021, after the Nationals purchased his contract from Rochester and advanced him to that level.
The next day, Romero made his debut in the major leagues against the Cincinnati Reds, pitching a relief inning in which he did not allow any runs or hits.
Romero was picked up by the Minnesota Twins off of waivers on March 21, 2022.
