Sergio Romo (shoulder) threw another bullpen session Saturday and has been cleared to pitch.

Romo felt some shoulder soreness early in camp that kept him out of action, but he's back and ready to roll. Santiago Casilla enters the season as the Giants' closer, but Romo is the next man up should Casilla struggle at any point.
Mar 7 - 6:34 PM

Sergio Romo (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday with no issues.

He's had some soreness in his pitching shoulder early on in camp, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the reliever was "letting it go" Sunday with no problems. Romo is slated to serve as the club's setup man in 2015.
Mar 1 - 3:04 PM

Sergio Romo (shoulder) is expected to begin throwing off a mound in a couple of days.

Romo showed up to camp with some soreness in his right shoulder, but it's so minor that the Giants didn't even call for a precautionary MRI. The 31-year-old has plenty of time to catch back up with the other relievers in camp. He'll serve as a setup man in 2015 for San Francisco closer Santiago Casilla.
Feb 26 - 2:34 PM

Sergio Romo (shoulder) said he expects to be throwing by next week.

"At this point, I don't have to come in throwing 100 miles an hour. I'm ready physically," Romo said. The shoulder started bothering Romo last month, and he's been playing catch on flat ground even while not throwing off a mound. The 31-year-old is set to be a setup man for the defending champs this season.
Feb 21 - 5:21 PM

Sergio Romo is dealing with some shoulder soreness.

But the Giants don't feel an MRI is necessary and are merely going to limit Romo to flat-ground work for a bit in the hope that the soreness naturally dissipates. Romo was re-signed to a two-year, $15 million free agent contract in mid-December and is poised to open the 2015 season as a setup man.
Feb 19 - 2:23 PM

Giants re-signed RHP Sergio Romo to a two-year, $15 million contract.

The free agent deal was agreed to last week and then officially announced Monday after Romo passed his pre-signing physical. The 31-year-old righty was probably hoping to hit it much bigger this winter in a relief market that has yielded four-year deals for David Robertson and Andrew Miller, but Romo finished the 2014 season with a relatively-underwhelming 3.72 ERA in 58 innings. He put up a 2.03 ERA in 225 2/3 innings between 2010-2013.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that the Giants have re-signed Sergio Romo to a two-year, $15 million deal.

Romo had an up-and-down 2014 season, ending the year with a 3.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 58 innings. While he drew interest from multiple big-market teams, he's apparently decided that he's most comfortable remaining with the reigning champs. They'll be getting him on a relatively cheap deal in comparison to other relievers this off-season.

Chris Cotillo of reports that Sergio Romo is expected to sign "hopefully in the next few days."

Romo has drawn interest from Dodgers, Yankees and Red Sox and the Giants haven't given up hope to re-sign him. The 31-year-old lost his closer job in 2014 but still wound up having a fine year, posting a 3.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 58 innings. Based on the teams with interest in him, it appears Romo is likely looking at a setup role next season.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Dodgers, Yankees, and Red Sox all have interest in free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

And the Giants are also interested in bringing him back. Romo struggled in the early part of 2014 before losing his grip on the closer role, but he pitched well down the stretch and should be able to find a multi-year deal, especially with these teams involved. Relievers are doing very well in free agency right now.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 12:56:00 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal has clarified that the Tigers have not inquired about free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

Rosenthal previously reported that Romo has been in touch with the Tigers, but that's apparently not the case. However, the Giants remain interested in retaining him, though they have other areas of need to address.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 12:40:00 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Sergio Romo has been in touch with the Giants and Tigers.

Romo was also talking with the Astros, but he'll have to look elsewhere now that the club has reportedly signed both Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek. With the money being thrown around to relievers, the 31-year-old should do well for himself in free agency, even though his ERA has increased in each of the past three seasons.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 10:19:00 AM

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros have had discussions with the representatives of Sergio Romo and Luke Gregerson.

The Astros missed out on both Andrew Miller and David Robertson, but they remain intent on signing at least one reliever. Landing in Houston would be good for the fantasy prospects of either Romo or Gregerson, as they'd both likely be the first option to close. Gregerson will reportedly get at least a three-year deal.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 10:54:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman writes that the Astros may pursue Sergio Romo if they are unable to sign David Robertson.

It's not a bad backup plan, as Romo won't be nearly as expensive as Robertson. The 31-year-old was yanked from the Giants' closer role this past season and there has been some concern about his durability, but he has had success saving games before. He could be a nice fit for a young team on the rise.
