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.

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.

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.
Feb 4 - 12:56 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that while the Dodgers appear the likely destination for Sergio Romo, there is still a second team in the bidding.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported earlier on Friday evening that the two sides had agreed to a deal but that may have been premature. Heyman also notes that Romo is currently en route to the Caribbean Series so a resolution to this situation may not come immediately. Stay tuned.
Feb 3 - 9:36 PM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Dodgers have agreed to a contract with free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

Romo had been deciding between the Dodgers and a mystery team, and it looks as though the Dodgers won out in the end. They desperately needed to bolster their setup corps in front of closer Kenley Jansen and Romo certainly fits the bill. Financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.
Feb 3 - 8:26 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Sergio Romo is deciding between the Dodgers and an unidentified team.

Romo would like to stay on the West Coast if possible, though it's unclear whether he's willing to accept a one-year deal, which the Dodgers would prefer. As for the mystery team in the mix, Romo told Casey Stern of MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that the Nationals and Mets have expressed interest. It's worth noting that the closer situation is still not settled with Washington. The 34-year-old Romo posted a 2.64 ERA over 40 appearances last season, but he missed significant time with a strained flexor tendon. Rosenthal also adds that the Dodgers remain in touch with Joe Blanton, among others.
Feb 2 - 8:07 PM

Sergio Romo told Casey Stern of MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that the Nationals and Mets have shown interest in him and that he has expressed interest back.

Romo previously stated a desire to remain near the West Coast, but he's probably starting to realize here in late January that his options are limited. At least the Nats and Mets look like potential contenders for 2017. Romo posted a strong 2.64 ERA over 40 regular-season appearances last year with the Giants, but he developed renewed elbow problems around mid-summer and got beat up by the Cubs in the NLDS. The veteran right-hander will probably have to settle for a one-year deal.
Jan 31 - 5:42 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Mets are showing interest in free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

They've also been tracking the markets for Joe Smith and Jerry Blevins as they look to make one final upgrade to their bullpen group. Romo has struggled to attract significant interest this winter despite posting a respectable 2.64 ERA over 40 appearances in 2016 with the Giants. There are obviously concerns about his right elbow, and the overall mileage on his soon-to-be 34-year-old frame.
Jan 26 - 9:47 AM

Free agent Sergio Romo drew interest from the Brewers before they signed Neftali Feliz.

That doesn't necessarily mean the Brewers are done pursuing him, though Romo wouldn't have a chance to close now that Feliz is on board. Romo has been met by crickets on the open market this winter. The Yankees were linked to him a month ago but obviously nothing came of that. The 33-year-old posted a respectable 2.64 ERA over 40 relief outings for the Giants last year.
