Sergio Romo RP SF 2 Days

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that Romo (shoulder) should return to a mound in a few days, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

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 (shoulder) expects to throw off a mound sometime next week, MLB.com reports.The right-hander came into camp nursing some shoulder soreness, which first crept up about a month ago, but the team hasn't felt the need to order an MRI to this point and Romo seems confident the issue will pass in relatively short order. He was able to play catch on flat ground and perform throwing exercises during the first three days of spring training workouts for pitchers and catchers.

Romo is feeling soreness in his shoulder, according to CSN Bay Area.Pitchers and catchers reported yesterday, but Romo hasn't begun throwing off a mound due to soreness he is feeling in his shoulder. He isn't scheduled to have an MRI, and manager Bruce Bochy doesn't feel that the injury is very serious. While shoulder soreness is nothing to be taken lightly, all indications are that Romo will be ready to go for Opening Day.

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.

Romo will share the closing duties with Santiago Casilla going forward, CSN Bay Area reports.

Romo was removed the closer role over a month ago but has been solid in the 18 appearances since then (2.08 ERA). Current closer Santiago Casilla blew his first save Wednesday, but he had been struggling in general recently (4.70 ERA over last eight appearances) and manager Bruce Bochy has decided to use both relievers in save opportunities going forward. Romo is definitely worth an add for those in need of some late-season saves.

Romo earned his first save since being removed from the closer's role over a month ago. He retired two batters, allowing a hit and striking out one in the win over Philadelphia on Saturday.

Before owners scramble to the waiver wire to back Romo back up, it is important to note that incumbent closer Santiago Casilla was given the day off by manager Bruce Bochy after surrendering a run in three consecutive outings (none of which were save situations). Until Bochy loses faith in Casilla's ability to close out games, Romo will continue to be used in the seventh and eighth innings.

Romo tossed a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the White Sox.

While it is a small sample size, Romo has tossed four clean outings in August with a 6:0 K:BB ratio. His struggles this season aren't a result of a drop in velocity, rather a problem locating his pitches (1.60 HR/9 in 2014 after 0.75 HR/9 in 2013) and an inability to prevent baserunners from scoring (career-low 70.7 LOB%). Romo has done a better job with his pitch location of late, and the results are beginning to show. He is still a long way from earning back the closer role, but continued success out of the pen will earn him the opportunity should Casilla falter down the stretch.
