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.
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.
