Seth had a total of 31 starts throughout his time spent playing in the minor leagues, and his earned run average was 4.33. Baseball Prospectus ranked Seth as the 76th best overall prospect in all of baseball before to the start of the 2018 season.
Romero debuted in the major leagues for the first time in 2020 and recorded a 13.50 earned run average over three bullpen appearances. At the end of the 2022 season, he was playing at the Double-A level.
