Welcome to VYPE’s new series “5-Star” as we go behind the scenes with Houston’s top athletes.

Our first segment is on The Woodlands’ Drew Romo.

The Highlanders are a tradition-rich baseball program with three state titles and a national championship. Dozens of all-sate stars have filtered through Scotland Yard, including the likes of New England Patriot Danny Amendola, Pittsburgh Pirate Jameson Taillon and MLB MVP candidate Paul Goldschmidt.

The next star at The Woodlands?

Drew Romo was named the city of Houston’s Newcomer of the Year last season as a freshman. The LSU-commit is now a sophomore and has hopes of building on his high school resume. He is already considered a pro prospect at catcher and hits from both sides of the plate.

This is VYPE 5-Star Drew Romo.

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
