That’s the thing with “indefinite” suspensions.
You never know how long they’re going to last. Or how not long, in the case of left-hander Seth Romero, one of the top college arms available in the 2017 MLB draft.
Romero was suspended in early April, after being removed from the rotation in late March, and at the time, it appeared the suspension would last the remainder of the season. The decision would have cost Romero at least five or six more starts.
Prior to the suspension, Romero was leading the nation in K/9, and had worked himself into the best shape of his college career. A first round selection seemed like a foregone conclusion.
