The Diamondbacks signed Nixon to a minor league contract at the start of spring training.
The former longtime Boston Red Sox outfielder hit .214 with two home runs in 56 at-bats this spring. He saw some work at first base, a position he'd never played.
Romero hit .345 in 58 at-bats this spring to take the fourth outfielder spot.
Nixon, who hit .251 with three homers in 307 at-bats last season for the Cleveland Indians, will start the season with Triple-A Tucson.
