Rays acquired RHP Sergio Romo from the Dodgers for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
It's a logical landing spot for Romo, who drew interest from the Rays before signing with the Dodgers this offseason. Romo has fared poorly this year (6.12 ERA over 25 innings) but may benefit from a change of scenery in Tampa. Even with Romo in tow, the Rays are still likely to pursue bullpen help at the trade deadline with Justin Wilson and A.J. Ramos among their preferred targets. Jul 22 - 11:02 PM

Date:

Dodgers designated RHP Sergio Romo for assignment.

That clears a roster spot for Grant Dayton, who is back from the 10-day DL. Romo's Dodgers career ends with a brutal 6.12 ERA over 30 outings. Injuries have hampered Romo over the last few years including a stint on the disabled list last month. Despite his struggles this season, the 34-year-old has a proven track record and shouldn't take long to resurface. Perhaps the Rays, who were interested in Ramos this offseason and are looking to bolster their bullpen, will consider him.
Jul 20 - 6:37 PM

Dodgers activated RHP Sergio Romo from the 10-day disabled list.

Romo missed a couple weeks of action with a sprained ankle. He returns to a 6.41 ERA.
Jun 19 - 7:54 PM

Sergio Romo (ankle) is on track to return to the Dodgers' bullpen this weekend.

Romo worked a scoreless rehab inning Wednesday night with High-A Rancho Cucamonga, striking out two of the three batters he faced. The veteran reliever has been out since June 4 due to a sprained left ankle.
Jun 15 - 12:40 PM

Sergio Romo (ankle) threw a 15-pitch simulated game Sunday.

He'll make at least one rehab appearance soon. Romo is eligible for activation in a week and it sounds like he might be ready at that time.
Jun 11 - 2:22 PM

Dodgers placed RHP Sergio Romo on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained left ankle.

The move was made retroactive to Thursday. Romo's first year in L.A. has not gone according to plan. So far he's struggled to a dismal 6.41 ERA over 24 relief appearances, though that number is somewhat skewed by a particularly bad outing against the Diamondbacks on April 21 (five runs in 1/3 of an inning). Luis Avilan was activated from the DL in the corresponding move.
Jun 9 - 9:26 PM

Sergio Romo gave up five runs while recording just one out Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Romo walked three of the six batters he faced, though one of those was intentional. He had allowed two runs over five innings coming into this one, but now he's sporting an 11.81 ERA and a 4/6 K/BB ratio.
Apr 22 - 1:34 AM

Sergio Romo (back) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

Romo has been dealing with some stiffness in his back since returning from the World Baseball Classic, but it's not believed to be serious. Barring any setbacks, he should be fine for the start of the regular season.
Mar 21 - 12:57 PM

Sergio Romo (back) will attempt to play catch on Friday.

The veteran right-hander was held out of workouts on Thursday due to stiffness in his lower back, but it's believed to be minor. He should be cleared to return to game action in a couple of days.
Mar 17 - 6:44 PM

Sergio Romo was held out of Thursday's workouts because of a stiff lower back.

Romo tweaked his back on his flight home from the World Baseball Classic, where he represented Team Mexico. He's hoping to be back on the field Friday. When healthy, Romo will serve as the bridge to stud closer Kenley Jansen.
Mar 16 - 6:46 PM

Sergio Romo tossed a scoreless inning of relief in the Dodgers' Cactus League game Sunday versus the Mariners.

Romo yielded a single to Mariners minor leaguer Zach Shank, but he struck out two of the other three batters he faced. The veteran right-hander now has five strikeouts through two Cactus League innings, and he has not allowed a run. Los Angeles might have found a bargain here with that one-year, $3 million mid-February deal.
Mar 5 - 5:12 PM

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.
Feb 15 - 6:27 PM

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.
Feb 15 - 3:18 PM

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.
