The San Francisco Giants have reached an agreement with right-handed reliever Sergio Romo, sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The Giants’ deal with Romo is for two years, $15 million, according to Rosenthal. The deal is pending a physical.
Despite drawing interest from the Toronto Blue Jays and the Detroit Tigers, the 31-year-old right-hander chose to return to the Giants, who he had spent the last seven years of his major-league career with.
During the 2014 campaign, Romo pitched to a 6-4 record, along with a 3.72 ERA in 58 innings pitched over 64 appearances out of the bullpen for the Giants. Since being named the club’s closer back in 2012, Romo had compiled 78 saves between 2012-2014.
However, Romo lost his closing role to Santiago Casilla during the 2014 season, but will still be a vital piece of the Giants’ 2015 bullpen. The Giants’ bullpen will consist of George Kontos, Javier Lopez, Jeremy Affeldt and Jean Machi.
In his seven-year major-league career, Romo has a 31-21 record, along with a 2.58 ERA, as well as 78 career saves, in 405 games pitched for the Giants.
