Romero was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
Romero was one of two men optioned Friday (the other being James Jones) to make room for newly-acquired Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia on the roster. Romero has hit a paltry .196 with the club this season anyway, and was out of the lineup for each of the past four games. He will take a spot back with the Triple-A club in hopes of turning things around offensively in preparation for a return to the majors at some point in the future.
