Romo (forearm) threw off flat ground from 60 feet on Friday, Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran right-hander landed on the disabled list earlier in April due to a flexor strain in his forearm, but he was finally able to pick up a ball Friday. He'll need to graduate to throwing off a mound before a possible rehab assignment enters the discussion, so Romo appears to be at least a couple weeks away from coming off the DL.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Romo (forearm) is scheduled to play catch Friday, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Diagnosed with a flexor strain, Romo was been a resident on the disabled list since April 14. While he's drawing close to his first possible return date, Bochy added that Romo is farther from his activation than George Kontos (elbow), who won't come back for "probably another two weeks," according to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle. Thus, Hunter Strickland will continue to cover the primary setup role for Santiago Casilla.

Romo (forearm) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a flexor strain, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

According to Pavlovic, Romo's injury is similar to what Matt Cain went through last season, and he'll be shut down from throwing for at least two weeks. Romo reported some elbow soreness Wednesday and was subsequently sent back to San Francisco for further evaluation, which revealed the flexor strain. While it's a relief that Romo is only dealing with a strain, it's also a concern any time that a pitcher reports elbow or forearm discomfort. Once he begins throwing later in April, his timetable for a return should come into focus.

Romo is dealing with a sore elbow and is being sent for tests in San Francisco, CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Romo has not pitched since Sunday, but he woke up Wednesday with a sore elbow, and is leaving the team's current road trip to be checked out back in California. The Giants will know more about Romo's status after he is examined Thursday.

Romo surrendered a home run but held the line and earned his second hold of the season in Thursday's 12-6 win over the Dodgers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Romo was able to rebound after giving up the solo-shot to Joc Pederson and record the final two outs of the eighth inning to hold the lead heading into the bottom half. With two holds through the Giants' first four games, he appears on pace to surpass the career-high mark of 34 holds he set in 2015.

Romo (undisclosed) made his spring training debut Wednesday, tossing a shutout inning while striking out one in the loss to the Mariners.

Competitive Edge Analysis

While the Giants never officially announced an injury, they apparently wanted to slow play Romo this spring. The extra time off seemed to help, as he looked like crisp in his one inning of work. He should be ready to serve his role as the Giants' primary setup man. With Jeremy Affeldt retiring this past offseason, Romo could be in line for a few more holds than usual in 2016.

Romo's next step in his recovery from an undisclosed injury will likely be pitching in a spring game, the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He threw another live batting practice session Saturday, allowing very little good contact while also breaking Rando Moreno's bat. It sounds like Romo will have no trouble being ready for Opening Day, where he, along with Hunter Strickland, will start the year setting up Santiago Casilla.

Romo (undisclosed) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Romo hasn't appeared in a spring game yet, but he is expected to return to game action once he faces hitters once more. It is unclear what the issue is, but it shouldn't hinder him from returning to his prominent role in the Giants bullpen.

Romo (undisclosed) will throw multiple live batting practice sessions before he's cleared to make his exhibition debut this spring, Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Romo is slightly behind schedule thus far this spring, but a return to the mound appears to be on the horizon after manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that the veteran reliever will face live batters at least twice before getting into game action. Once he gets into game shape, Romo figures to slot in as one of San Francisco's most valuable middle relievers behind fellow right-hander Hunter Strickland and closer Santiago Casilla.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that Romo (undisclosed) is almost ready to pitch in exhibition games, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Romo has been brought along slowly thus far in spring training after he appeared in a career-high 70 games last season as a 32-year-old. He began throwing off a mound last week and appears to be on track to appear in the Giants' spring training games in the near future.
