Romo notched three punchouts in his lone inning of work Friday, earning his sixth hold in the process.

EDGE Analysis

Romo was being eased back into action after missing most of the season with a forearm injury. This was his first full inning of work since returning to the team this week. He responded well, working around a single to strike out the side. With the Giants bullpen having an up-and-down season, Romo should immediately reclaim his role as the team's primary set-up man.

Manager Bruce Bochy intends to utilize Romo in a low-leverage situation before bringing him back to his role in the eighth inning, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo had served as the setup man to Santiago Casilla prior to suffering a forearm injury, and it sounds as if the Giants have every intention of him returning to that role. It may not be until a few days down the road, however, so Romo may provide limited benefits in formats that value holds in his first week back.

Romo (forearm) will be activated from the DL prior to Monday's game, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

A corresponding move will be made prior to Monday's game against Colorado. Romo was effective during a long rehab assignment, and he should once again emerge as a viable part of the bridge to Santiago Casilla.

Romo (forearm) allowed an earned run on three hits in his rehab appearance with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

With an 18:1 K:BB over 10.1 innings between High-A San Jose and Triple-A Sacramento, it's reasonable to think that Romo is closing in on a return to the San Francisco bullpen in the near future.

Romo (forearm) has yet to be activated from the DL despite throwing two more successful innings with High-A San Jose on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

It was expected that the Giants would activate Romo for the beginning of the home series with the Athletics, but they continue to let him rehab despite excellent results in the minors. This strategy proved ineffective as the big club lost 11-8 to Oakland on Tuesday with the bullpen surrendering 10 of those runs. It wouldn't be surprising to see Romo activated Wednesday.

Romo (forearm) pitched in back-to-back days during his rehab stint with Triple-A Sacramento and reportedly felt fine. He will make one more rehab appearance with High-A San Jose and expects to rejoin the Giants during this homestand, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo has been sidelined since mid-April with a forearm injury. With his arm feeling better, he will make another rehab appearance down at High-A San Jose (Triple-A Sacramento is on the road) either Saturday or Sunday before re-joining the Giants on their current homestand. If he pitches Saturday, there is an outside chance he could be available Sunday against the Phillies. With Sunday's game starting at 1:05 p.m. Pacific, a more realistic return date would be Monday against the Athletics. If everything goes well, Romo should resume his role as a late-inning reliever.

Romo (forearm) could return to the Giants during their next homestand, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants are currently on a quick, seven-game east coast road swing that began Friday, so they won't be back in San Francisco until June 24. Romo has been on a rehab assignment and he's scheduled to make an appearance at High-A San Jose on Sunday. Provided everything goes well, Romo will move up to Triple-A Stockton as his next step and then he'll presumably join the Giants as soon as next weekend.

Romo (forearm) was placed on the 60-day DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The timing might seem funny because Romo just started a rehab assignment could be activated within a week, but this is just a clerical move so the Giants could call up Ramiro Pena to fill the utility infielder role. They'll have to make another move to activate Romo, but it's probable a plan is already in place.

Romo (forearm) played light catch on the field prior to Sunday's game, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo has already logged three rehab appearances, surrendering just one run and accumulating six total strikeouts. He hasn't pitched for the Giants since mid-April, but could be in line for an activation this week. Once ready, he'll presumably regain a late-inning role in the San Francisco bullpen.

Romo (forearm) will begin his rehab assignment Monday night by pitching at Triple-A Sacramento, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo's rehab schedule is to pitch brief stints at Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. If there are no setbacks in this time, he will return to San Francisco on Monday, May 30, in his normal late inning role. Before being injured, Romo had a 2.70 ERA and 0.60 WHIP through four games.
