Manager Bruce Bochy said that Casilla is his closer, but he could go to Romo for the occasional save opportunity this season, CSN Bay Area reports.

Casilla is still the closer and will see the majority of save opportunities, but Romo will be called upon when the opposing team has a -righty-heavy lineup late in games. Romo held right-handed batters to a .172 batting average last season. Romo should still be considered a set-up man and will be a solid source of holds with the occasional save sprinkled in. In deeper leagues, it wouldn't be a bad idea to handcuff Casilla with Romo should the former struggle or get injured early in the year.

Romo has now made two appearances this spring and hasn't been limited by the sore shoulder he was dealing with at the start of spring training.

There was minor concern at the start of spring training when Romo revealed that he was feeling soreness in his throwing shoulder. Both he and the club indicated that it was a non-issue and a little rest would be all that Romo needed. After making two appearances this week (4.50 ERA, 2:0 K:BB ratio), Romo should be good to go as the Giants' set-up man behind Santiago Casilla when Opening Day comes around.

Romo will make his spring debut Sunday, the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea reports.

He was slow to get going in camp because of a sore shoulder, but now that he is lineup up to get into a game, he should have plenty of time to get ready for the start of the regular season. Romo will start off as the Giants' setup man, but would probably be the first player in line to replace Santiago Casilla as the closer if the need arises.

Romo has yet to throw from a mound in camp due to shoulder soreness, which he admitted first surfaced about a month ago. The Giants don't seem especially concerned, with Romo still able to throw on flat ground and perform throwing exercises, but he won't be completely in the clear until he gets several bullpen sessions under his belt.

Romo agreed to a two-year, $15 million contract with the Giants on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

Romo lost his closer job in 2014 after a horrendous start, but regained a share of the duties with Santiago Casilla late in the season when he turned things around. He finished the season with a 3.72 ERA and 0.95 WHIP iwth 59 strikeouts over 58 innings, also recording 23 saves. He and Casilla will likely both go into spring training as options for the closer role again in 2015.

Romo (6-4) picked up the win Wednesday after tossing a clean eighth inning against the Diamondbacks.

Romo continues to serve as the team's setup man, even after Bruce Bochy said that he and Santiago Casilla would share closing opportunities at the end of August. Casilla has definitely been the better of the two relievers, and the team is having success with the current bullpen setup. Romo should continue to be a solid source of holds for the rest of the season.

Romo (5-4) took the loss Monday, giving up the walk-off run to the Rockies in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Last week manager Bruce Bochy said that he would use both Romo and Casilla in save opportunities going forward. While Monday's situation wasn't a save, it was definitely a high pressure situation and Romo faltered. This should further solidify Casilla's role as the primary closer going forward.
