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. Wed, Dec 7, 2016 04:48:00 PM

Alex Pavlovic of 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.

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.

Sergio Romo gave up a base hit in the 10th inning but was able to protect a three-run lead to earn the save against the Padres on Saturday.

Romo now seems to be the go-to guy to close out games for the Giants. They have had a revolving door at closer but this was Romo's third save in the last five games. He is the Giants reliever to own for fantasy purposes. Romo missed half the season to injury but has pitched well when on the mound. He has a 2.93 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 27 2/3 innings.

Sergio Romo earned his second save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Padres.

The Giants' bullpen has been an out-and-out mess in September. Romo has picked up saves in two of the last three games, though, and might earn a few additional chances over the final week-plus. On Thursday, he allowed a one-out double to Ryan Schimpf in the ninth, but induced a pop out and a ground out to end the contest without run-scoring incident. In 26 2/3 innings this season, Romo has pitched to a 3.04 ERA and 29/7 K/BB ratio.

Giants activated RHP Sergio Romo from the 15-day disabled list.

Romo will rejoin the Giants' bullpen Monday after missing nearly three months with a flexor tendon strain in his right elbow. He made back-to-back rehab appearances on June 30 and July 1 at Triple-A Sacramento and felt fine.

Sergio Romo (elbow) will pitch in back-to-back games with Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday and Friday.

Sergio is nearing a return from a strained flexor tendon suffered just a week into the season. Once he has pitched in back-to-back games, as will occur on Thursday and Friday, he should be ready to rejoin the major league club in short order.

Sergio Romo (elbow) will make another minor league rehab appearance on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Romo bounced back from a rough appearance by striking out two batters in a scoreless inning Sunday with High-A San Jose. Still, the Giants want to be sure he's ready to return. Romo has been sidelined since April 10 with a strained flexor tendon.

Sergio Romo (elbow) could make his next minor league rehab appearance on Saturday or Sunday.

There was some talk of Romo rejoining the Giants this weekend, but he gave up two runs on three hits over one-third of an inning during his most recent rehab appearance on Thursday. The Giants want to see better results before bringing him back. Romo has been sidelined since April 10 with a strained flexor tendon.

Sergio Romo (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

Romo tossed a scoreless inning for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday and will pitch again Thursday night. After that, the Giants will decide whether to activate him or have Romo make another rehab appearance. Romo has been sidelined for the last two months with a strained flexor tendon.

Sergio Romo (elbow) will resume his minor league rehab assignment with an inning of work at Single-A San Jose on Friday.

Romo had battled almost all the way back from his elbow issue last month when he suffered a setback. It's unclear what role that he'll have upon his eventual return as Hunter Strickland seems to have settled in nicely in the eighth inning role.

Sergio Romo (elbow) threw a light bullpen session on Saturday.

Romo was close to returning last month but his rehab assignment was abandoned because of elbow fatigue. It's a good sign that he's throwing again but there's still no timetable for his return. Cory Gaerrin and Hunter Strickland have been setting up for closer Santiago Casilla in Romo's absence.
Sat, Jun 11, 2016 05:03:00 PM

Giants transferred RHP Sergio Romo to the 60-day disabled list.

This was done merely as a procedural move to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Ramiro Pena. Romo has been sidelined since mid-April with a flexor strain in his pitching arm.
