Ramsey Romano

Guts. Glory. Ram-sey Romano

Ramsey Romano doubled twice, singled, and scored three runs, Josue Huma singled twice, doubled, and drove-in two runs, and SP Jesus Tejada hurled 3.2 IP of one-hit ball, leading the Cubs to a 6-2 victory over the Angels in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Tuesday morning on Field #5 on John Arguelo Way at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ. 

Erven Roper belted a two-run HR to account for the two Angel runs. 

Ramsey Romano (Cubs 2017 31st round draft pick - Long Beach State) is an athletic and versatile defender who can play anywhere in the infield and outfield. He almost certainly will be the #1 utility-supersub at Eugene when the Emeralds begin play in a couple of weeks.   

Prior to the game on Field #5, RHPs Dalton Geekie and Andry Rondon threw "live" BP on Field #4 (one "inning" - 25 pitches each). Geekie (Atlanta Braves 2015 22nd round draft pick - Georgia Highlands College) underwent TJS in August 2016 and missed the 2017 season. The 23-year old 6'5 righthander was acquired by the Cubs from Lake Erie (Frontier League) a couple of weeks ago. He signed with Lake Erie after being released by the Braves at the end of Minor League Camp in March. A. Rondon reported late to Extended Spring Training and it's taken him a while to round into game shape.
