Biographical Information[edit]

Davis Romero was signed by scout Giovany Miranda for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1999. He made his pro debut for the DSL Blue Jays in 2000-2001 before coming stateside in 2002.

Romero beat the Nicaraguan national team in the Gold Medal Game of the 2010 Central American Games. He dominated the 2017 Bolivarian Games. In the opener, he allowed one hit (to Christopher Howard) and one walk (to Giancarlo Kanashiro) while fanning ten in five shutout innings against Peru. He was relieved by Manuel Campos. Against Venezuela, with a spot in the Gold Medal game at stake, he struck out 19 in a 3-hit, 2-walk complete game shutout. His 29 K were more than the tourney's next 3 combined - Carlos Parra had 9 and Juan Escorcia and Ronald Ramirez each had 8. Panama wound up with the Silver Medal.

He was back on the hill for Panama a month later in the 2017 Central American Games. He was excellent against Honduras (5 IP, 2 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 6 K) then Abraham Atencio Jr. relieved. He then got the nod in the Gold Medal game against host Nicaragua but allowed a two-run homer to Elmer Reyes and 3 runs altogether in 7 innings (5 H, 1 BB, 9 K) before Harold Araúz relieved. While he had a turned in a solid game, he took the loss to another former major leaguer, Wilton López. His 15 Ks led the event, two ahead of Guillermo Valdez.
