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.

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.

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 MLBDailyDish.com 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that he planned to "ham and egg it" with Santiago Casilla and Sergio Romo in the eighth and ninth innings for the rest of the season.

In other words, they're going to share the closer role. While he's overall done a fine job since taking over the gig back in late June, Casilla but he hasn't been as sharp of late and Romo has righted the ship. Casilla recorded the save Saturday, but Bochy said Romo would have remained in the game after finishing the eighth inning had the team not needed to pinch-hit for him. Both relievers need to be owned in fantasy leagues.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that Sergio Romo has been removed from the closer role.

Santiago Casilla and Jeremy Affeldt will receive the save chances for now. Romo blew his fifth save of the season Saturday and has allowed 15 runs in his last 15 innings. There's a good chance the 31-year-old will eventually get his job back, but for now Casilla and Affeldt will be getting the ball in the ninth inning.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy after Saturday's game wouldn't confirm whether Sergio Romo is still his closer.

Romo blew another save chance Saturday and has allowed 15 runs in his last 15 innings. "Oh, I don’t know," Bochy said. "I won’t answer it now. It’s something I’m sure we’ll talk about here tomorrow. He’s done such a good job for us. I know everybody has their moments. If we have to tweak it, we’ll tweak it. This is not the time to talk about it." Ultimately, the Giants seem likely to stick with Romo given how successful he's been over the last few years. However, Santiago Casilla should be scooped up just in case.

Sergio Romo took his third blown save in five chances and fifth overall Saturday after giving up two runs in the ninth against the Reds.

Romo hasn't really gotten consistent work lately, but then, he's not typically one who has needed it to stay sharp. He walked Joey Votto and gave up a homer to Brandon Phillips in the ninth tonight. It's possible the Giants could consider lifting him from the closer's role with his ERA up to 5.17. If so, Santiago Casilla would be next in line. Still, it seems more likely that they'll give Romo at least one more chance to save his job.
