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.
May 17 - 8:34 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) has stretched his flat-ground throwing to 90 feet.

And he's experienced no issues thus far, though these are just the initial steps. Romo landed on the disabled list April 14 with a right flexor strain and will probably continue to be eased along in his rehab. We wouldn't expect him to be an option for the Giants' bullpen again until sometime after mid-May.
May 3 - 6:48 PM

Sergio Romo (flexor strain) will play catch on Friday.

Romo landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a right flexor strain and he's now ready to test his progress. He's still a ways off from rejoining the Giants' bullpen.
Apr 25 - 8:20 PM

Giants placed RHP Sergio Romo on the 15-day disabled list with a right flexor strain.

Boston's Carson Smith has the same injury and has already missed about three weeks. Romo will be reevaluated in two weeks. At that point, he could resume throwing. With Romo sidelined, Hunter Strickland will move into a setup role ahead of closer Santiago Casilla.
Apr 14 - 7:02 PM

Sergio Romo is heading back to San Francisco to have his elbow examined.

Romo woke up Wednesday morning feeling sore. The Giant setup man should be considered day-to-day moving forward until further word surfaces as to the extent of this injury. Romo had appeared in four contests prior to his elbow woes. Hunter Strickland could see a bump in eighth-inning appearances if Romo is sidelined for any significant amount of time.
Apr 14 - 12:03 AM

Sergio Romo was charged with three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning Sunday against the White Sox.

Romo has been pretty good this spring, so we won't ready much into Sunday's poor outing. Perhaps we was working on a certain part of his arsenal. Romo is line for a setup role behind Giants closer Santiago Casilla.
Mar 27 - 7:33 PM

Sergio Romo will make his Cactus League debut in 2-3 days.

Romo threw to live hitters for the second time on Saturday. The Giants have brought him along slowly this spring to preserve his elbow after logging 57 1/3 innings in 2015. Romo has made at least 64 appearances in six straight seasons.
Mar 12 - 8:20 PM

Sergio Romo will face live hitters one more time before making his spring debut.

Romo threw 30 pitches Wednesday on a back field at the team's spring training facility in Scottsdale. He's not injured, but the Giants are working him in slowly after asking him to make a career-high 70 appearances last year. Romo will again serve as the bridge to closer Santiago Casilla in 2016.
Mar 9 - 3:32 PM

Sergio Romo is on track to make his spring debut within the next few days.

The Giants have elected to hold Romo back early on in camp, preferring to ease the veteran reliever into things. Romo made a career-high 70 appearances last season.
Mar 8 - 6:50 PM

Sergio Romo is expected to begin throwing off a mound around Thursday when the Giants begin live batting practice.

Romo is healthy but is being held back this spring after a career-high 70 appearances last season. The reliever has had some elbow issues in the past, so the Giants are just being cautious.
Feb 21 - 2:18 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said reliever Sergio Romo will be held back a bit in the early days of spring training.

Bochy also added that Romo is healthy, saying "There's nothing wrong." Romo was seen playing catch on flat ground, not throwing off a mound, earlier Thursday, and the reliever has had right elbow issues in the past. It doesn't seem to be a huge red flag for now, but it's worth monitoring as camp goes along.

Sergio Romo played catch on flat ground Thursday under the watchful eyes of the Giants' training staff.

MLB.com's Chris Haft took notice, tweeting that the short, closely-monitored workout raises some questions about Romo's health leading into the start of spring training. It could also be nothing at all. Romo had a bounceback 2015 and is expected to serve as a high-leverage setup man this season to Giants closer Santiago Casilla.
Feb 18 - 1:07 PM

Sergio Romo got out of hot water in the ninth inning to pick up his second save in Monday's 4-2 win over the Brewers.

Carlos Gomez led off the inning, reaching first base on an infield single, but he was thrown out at second base attempting to steal on a controversial call. He was ejected from the game for arguing the call. With two outs, Romo then gave up a double to Scooter Gennett to bring the winning run to the plate, but struck out Jean Segura to end it. Romo has functioned as the set-up man for closer Santiago Casilla, so his save chances should continue coming in very rarely going forward. He was just giving Casilla an extra day of rest after he threw 35 pitches on back-to-back days.

Sergio Romo earned his first save of the season Saturday in the Giants' victory over the Diamondbacks.

Romo entered in the eighth inning and retired the only batter he faced in that frame, so Giants manager Bruce Bochy just let him finish out the eventual 8-4 win. Santiago Casilla is still the closer in San Francisco.
