Sergio Romo had stomach cramps brought on by illness during Thursday's game versus the Diamondbacks.

Romo was seen in the dugout in obvious distress after pitching a scoreless inning, but it appears to be no big deal. He should be available to pitch Friday if there's a save situation.

Sergio Romo earned his second save of the season by tossing a perfect ninth inning against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

This appearance went much more smoothly than his first save appearance of the year in which the right-hander escaped despite a solo Miguel Montero homer on Tuesday. Twenty-four hours later he looked like the Romo of 2013, setting the Snakes down 1-2-3, including a strikeout of the vaunted Paul Goldschmidt. Romo emerged as one of baseball's best closers last season, and you should see more flailing bats and pinpoint control during his appearances in 2014.

Sergio Romo has allowed 12 runs (11 earned) over three-plus innings of work this spring.

In his most recent appearance on Saturday, Romo failed to retire any of the batters he faced, giving up three hits and two walks. He has relied almost exclusively on his fastball and his changeup this spring, so perhaps he is just holding back his electric slider for games that actually matter, but the situation is worth monitoring.

Sergio Romo allowed an unearned run in his only inning of work against the Reds in Thursday's 3-2 victory.

Romo emerged as one of baseball's best closer's last season, combining great control with an impressive ability to miss bats. He'll be reprising the role and he can reasonably be expected to provide more of the same exquisite relief work.

Sergio Romo surrendered six runs in an inning of work against the Athletics on Wednesday.

Romo was singled to death, allowing six of them along with a triple, leading to six Athletics runs in the fourth inning. It is not exactly the start he was hoping for, but one inning in his first appearance of spring should not sound the alarm. Expect him to once again rank among baseball's best closers this season.

Sergio Romo earned his 37th save of the season by tossing a scoreless ninth inning against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Romo has struggled a bit in September, entering this evening's action with a 3.38 ERA and hideous 1.88 WHIP this month. He's only blown one save in September, of course, and was enjoying a fine season before that. Romo is 37-for-42 in save opportunities and boasts a 2.62 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 63 appearances.

Sergio Romo sustained his fifth blown save of the season and took the loss against the Mets on Wednesday.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy tried to avoid using Romo after he pitched Tuesday, but after Santiago Casilla was unable to close it out Romo was called on for a second straight day. He responded by allowing three hits and a walk, capped by a Josh Satin walk-off two-run single. Romo has still had a strong season and shouldn't be downgraded now for a poor outing.

Sergio Romo slammed the door on the Dodgers in the ninth inning on Sunday, protecting a one-run advantage and earning his 35th save of the season.

It certainly wasn't smooth sailing for Romo, as Chili Buss led off the inning with a single, was sacrificed to second by Nick Punto, and went to third on a single by Dee Gordon. Romo then bore down and fanned A.J. Ellis, and after walking Adrian Gonzalez intentionally, got pinch-hitter Yasiel Puig to hit into a fielder's choice to end the game. Romo now owns a 2.50 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 55/10 K/BB ratio through 54 innings on the year.

Sergio Romo earned his first save of September by working 1 1/3 scoreless frames against the Dodgers on Friday.

Romo retired the only batter he faced in the eighth, but surrendered consecutive singles to kick off the ninth before setting down three straight. Romo hadn't notched a save since August 30, one reason he's pitched only four times since that date. The right-hander is 34-of-38 in save conversions and owns a pristine 2.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 55/10 K/BB ratio.
