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.

Date:

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.
Sep 23 - 1:32 AM

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.
Jul 4 - 2:55 PM

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.
Jun 29 - 8:31 PM

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.
Jun 27 - 7:58 PM

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.
Jun 25 - 9:25 AM

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.
Jun 23 - 5:51 PM

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.
Jun 17 - 6:43 PM

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.
Jun 11 - 5:03 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.
Jun 10 - 6:50 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) will be shut down 4-5 days.

Romo began experiencing arm fatigue last week after beginning a minor league rehab assignment and he had to be scratched from an appearance Monday night at High-A San Jose. A followup MRI on his right elbow showed no structural damage, so the Giants are optimistic Romo can restart his rehab assignment this weekend. He's been out since mid-April because of a flexor strain.
May 31 - 5:52 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) did not make his scheduled appearance Monday at High-A San Jose.

Romo is still dealing with some fatigue from last week, per Giants general manager Bobby Evans. He was scheduled to pitch Monday and Tuesday in High-A ball before rejoining the Giants' bullpen on Thursday. It's not clear what the plan is now. Romo has been on the disabled list since mid-April with a flexor muscle strain.
May 31 - 3:50 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) won't be activated from the disabled list before Thursday.

Romo experienced some fatigue after making back-to-back rehab appearances last week at Triple-A Sacramento. But it doesn't sound like a major setback, and Romo is actually slated to pitch this Monday and Tuesday at High-A San Jose before possibly returning to the Giants on Thursday. The setup man has been on the disabled list since April 14 with a flexor muscle strain in his right arm.
May 30 - 12:02 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Sacramento.

Romo, who is coming back from a flexor strain, is expected to pitch Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before making back-to-back appearances on Sunday and Monday. As long as there are no issues, he should rejoin the Giants after that.
May 23 - 9:11 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) threw in an extended spring training game Tuesday without issue.

He'll throw another inning at extended spring training Friday and then the Giants could send him out on a minor league rehab assignment. Romo was placed on the disabled list April 14 with a right flexor strain. He should be back before the end of May if everything goes smoothly from here.
