Andrew James Romine (born December 24, 1985) is an American professional baseball utility player who is currently a free agent. He previously played for the Los Angeles Angels, Detroit Tigers, and Seattle Mariners. He is the brother of MLB catcher Austin Romine and son of former MLB outfielder Kevin Romine. On September 30, 2017, Romine became the fifth player in major league history to play all nine defensive positions in a single game.



Romine attended Trabuco Hills High School in Mission Viejo, California. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 36th round of the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft, but he opted to attend Arizona State University, where he played for the Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team. In 2006, he played collegiate summer baseball with the Brewster Whitecaps of the Cape Cod Baseball League.[1] Romine was drafted out of Arizona State by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the fifth round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft.

In 2008 he led the entire Angels' organization and the Midwest League with 62 stolen bases.[2] In 2010 he was named to the Texas League All Star Team.[2] Romine was promoted to the Angels on September 24, 2010,[3] making his major league debut that day. He played four games with the Angels during the rest of the season, batting 1-for-11 (.091) and getting his first major league hit on September 26.[4][5]

Romine was called up to the majors again on June 12, 2011, after an injury sidelined Alberto Callaspo.[6] Romine saw action in 10 games with the Angels and batted .125 with a stolen base.[4] During the 2012 season, Romine appeared in 12 games with the Angels. He posted a .412 batting average (7-for-17) and tallied his first career RBI and a stolen base.[4]
