Sergio Romo RP SF 1 Month

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.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that Sergio Romo has been removed from the closer role.

Santiago Casilla and Jeremy Affeldt will receive the save chances for now. Romo blew his fifth save of the season Saturday and has allowed 15 runs in his last 15 innings. There's a good chance the 31-year-old will eventually get his job back, but for now Casilla and Affeldt will be getting the ball in the ninth inning.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy after Saturday's game wouldn't confirm whether Sergio Romo is still his closer.

Romo blew another save chance Saturday and has allowed 15 runs in his last 15 innings. "Oh, I don't know," Bochy said. "I won't answer it now. It's something I'm sure we'll talk about here tomorrow. He's done such a good job for us. I know everybody has their moments. If we have to tweak it, we'll tweak it. This is not the time to talk about it." Ultimately, the Giants seem likely to stick with Romo given how successful he's been over the last few years. However, Santiago Casilla should be scooped up just in case.

Sergio Romo took his third blown save in five chances and fifth overall Saturday after giving up two runs in the ninth against the Reds.

Romo hasn't really gotten consistent work lately, but then, he's not typically one who has needed it to stay sharp. He walked Joey Votto and gave up a homer to Brandon Phillips in the ninth tonight. It's possible the Giants could consider lifting him from the closer's role with his ERA up to 5.17. If so, Santiago Casilla would be next in line. Still, it seems more likely that they'll give Romo at least one more chance to save his job.

Sergio Romo came on in relief of Madison Bumgarner in the ninth inning to close out the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

An error and a hit left two on with nobody out for Romo, who allowed an inherited run to score before slamming the door. Romo had a tough couple of games against the Rockies in mid-June, but he's turned in two straight scoreless innings the past two days. He's still not as dominant as he had been prior to the rough patch, and he may benefit from a few days' rest over the upcoming All-Star break.
