By  | 

Alex Romero was called-up by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday.

He takes the roster spot of Eric Byrnes, who underwent surgery on his left hand one day after he was hit by a pitch. Byrnes is expected to miss four to eight weeks.

Romero was batting .348 with 20 doubles, three triples, two home runs and 47 RBI. His 97 hits were the most by any player in the Pacific Coast League.
