The Houston baseball team will be without one of its aces on the mound for the remainder of the season.
This week, it was announced that left-handed pitcher Seth Romero, who many projected to be a first-round pick in the upcoming MLB Draft, has been dismissed from the Cougars after a series of “undisclosed violations.”
The final straw came during an incident on Tuesday of this week, which was apparently a fight with a teammate.
Told by multiple sources that Seth Romero’s final dismissal stems from a fight during batting practice on Tuesday. Ugly situation. #mlbdraft

“We wish Seth and his family the best of luck as he embarks on the next phase of his life and baseball career,” Houston head coach Todd Whitting said in a press release. “We are fully focused on our remaining schedule and the current members of our program.”
The Cougars hold a record of 31-17 this season.
During his time at Houston, Romero threw for a 2.43 ERA, 290 strikeouts and 70 walks in just 226 1/3 innings. The 15.72 strikeouts per nine innings was enough to lead the nation.
