Dodgers signed RHP Sergio Romo to a one-year, $3 million contract.
Romo is expected to work as a setup man for closer Kenley Jansen during the coming season. He racked up 14 holds with the Giants a year ago while pitching to a 2.64 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 33/7 K/BB ratio across 30 2/3 innings (40 games). A strained flexor tendon prevented him from approaching the 70 appearances he made during the 2015 season. As far as bullpen additions go, Romo makes for a nice, cheap get for the Dodgers.

Date:

Dodgers president Andrew Friedman said the Sergio Romo signing will be made official on Wednesday.

Romo is in Dodgers' camp Wednesday and will presumably take a physical to make his one-year, $3 million deal official. The 33-year-old posted a 2.64 ERA over 40 appearances with the division rival Giants last season and will pitch in a set-up capacity with his new team.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports the Dodgers have agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with free agent right-hander Sergio Romo.

The contract is pending a physical. The Dodgers have been linked to Romo for days, so it's a hardly surprise to see him land in Los Angeles. Romo has closing experience but worked as a setup man last year in San Francisco. He'll occupy a similar role in Los Angeles, working ahead of ninth-inning anchor Kenley Jansen. The 33-year-old posted a respectable 2.64 ERA while providing 14 holds last season. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, Romo took "significantly less" money to sign with L.A., so he must have really wanted to be a Dodger.
Feb 6 - 11:23 AM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Dodgers remain the most likely destination for free agent right-hander Sergio Romo.

Rosenthal confirms the report from Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports on Friday that another team remains in the mix. It's unclear exactly who that mystery team is at this point, but there have been rumblings that perhaps the Nationals could be involved.
Feb 4 - 12:56 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that while the Dodgers appear the likely destination for Sergio Romo, there is still a second team in the bidding.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported earlier on Friday evening that the two sides had agreed to a deal but that may have been premature. Heyman also notes that Romo is currently en route to the Caribbean Series so a resolution to this situation may not come immediately. Stay tuned.
Feb 3 - 9:36 PM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Dodgers have agreed to a contract with free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

Romo had been deciding between the Dodgers and a mystery team, and it looks as though the Dodgers won out in the end. They desperately needed to bolster their setup corps in front of closer Kenley Jansen and Romo certainly fits the bill. Financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.
Feb 3 - 8:26 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Sergio Romo is deciding between the Dodgers and an unidentified team.

Romo would like to stay on the West Coast if possible, though it's unclear whether he's willing to accept a one-year deal, which the Dodgers would prefer. As for the mystery team in the mix, Romo told Casey Stern of MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that the Nationals and Mets have expressed interest. It's worth noting that the closer situation is still not settled with Washington. The 34-year-old Romo posted a 2.64 ERA over 40 appearances last season, but he missed significant time with a strained flexor tendon. Rosenthal also adds that the Dodgers remain in touch with Joe Blanton, among others.
Feb 2 - 8:07 PM

Sergio Romo told Casey Stern of MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that the Nationals and Mets have shown interest in him and that he has expressed interest back.

Romo previously stated a desire to remain near the West Coast, but he's probably starting to realize here in late January that his options are limited. At least the Nats and Mets look like potential contenders for 2017. Romo posted a strong 2.64 ERA over 40 regular-season appearances last year with the Giants, but he developed renewed elbow problems around mid-summer and got beat up by the Cubs in the NLDS. The veteran right-hander will probably have to settle for a one-year deal.
Jan 31 - 5:42 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Mets are showing interest in free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

They've also been tracking the markets for Joe Smith and Jerry Blevins as they look to make one final upgrade to their bullpen group. Romo has struggled to attract significant interest this winter despite posting a respectable 2.64 ERA over 40 appearances in 2016 with the Giants. There are obviously concerns about his right elbow, and the overall mileage on his soon-to-be 34-year-old frame.
Jan 26 - 9:47 AM

Free agent Sergio Romo drew interest from the Brewers before they signed Neftali Feliz.

That doesn't necessarily mean the Brewers are done pursuing him, though Romo wouldn't have a chance to close now that Feliz is on board. Romo has been met by crickets on the open market this winter. The Yankees were linked to him a month ago but obviously nothing came of that. The 33-year-old posted a respectable 2.64 ERA over 40 relief outings for the Giants last year.
Jan 21 - 6:53 PM

According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Yankees have expressed interest in free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

Shea says "several teams" have also made the call. Romo battled elbow problems in 2016 and only pitched 30 2/3 regular-season innings for the Giants, but he still managed a 2.64 ERA and boasts a career ERA of 2.58 with a career K/9 of 10.2. The veteran righty will turn 34 years old next March.

Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com reports that the Giants aren't planning reunions with Sergio Romo, Santiago Casilla, or Javier Lopez.

It's the end of an era in San Francisco, as the trio has been present for World Series victories in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Per Pavlovic, the Giants are excited about teaming new closer Mark Melancon up with some of their younger arms. Bryan Morris is also expected to be in the mix after signing a minor league deal.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sergio Romo is available for Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday.

But he stopped short of committing to Romo as his closer, telling reporters, "you'll find out in the ninth." Romo blew a save in Game 3 on Monday, serving up a game-tying two-run homer to Kris Bryant in the top of the ninth. San Francisco went on to win in 13 innings to force Game 4 on Tuesday night at AT&T Park.

Sergio Romo blew a save when he served up a game-tying, two-run home run to Kris Bryant in the top of the ninth inning Monday against the Cubs.

The Giants battled back to take the lead in the bottom of the eighth, only to have Romo give it right back before he retired a batter. He did at least settle in after that and retire the next six he faced and the Giants eventually won it in the 13th. Romo wound up throwing 32 pitches, so it's possible he won't be available Tuesday.
Tue, Oct 11, 2016 03:07:00 AM

Sergio Romo worked a perfect ninth inning against the Dodgers on Saturday to earn his fourth save.

Romo struck out one and recorded a pair of groundouts in preserving the 3-0 victory. He's now converted four straight save opportunities since Giants manager Bruce Bochy turned to him on September 20. Romo, of course, saved 38 games as recently as 2013 and could be setting himself up to earn some money as a high-leverage reliever when he hits the free agent market this winter.
