Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that while he expects Sergio Romo to get the majority of the save chances this season, he wants to be careful with his workload.

Romo staked his claim on the closer role down the stretch last year and into the postseason, but throwing the slider as often as he does can put a lot of strain on his arm. With that in mind, the Giants could give him the occasional day off, opening the door for other relievers to get save chances. Romo should be excellent when called upon, but be careful about counting on him as an elite closer option in fantasy leagues.
