Romo recorded just one out before surrendering a two-run home run in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Romo was brought into the game to protect a three-run lead against his former club, but he served up a two-run blast to Christian Arroyo, which sparked a late-inning comeback for the Giants. The veteran reliever technically earned his third hold of the season Wednesday, but with a 10.57 ERA in 10 appearances, even owners in holds leagues will find it hard to roster him until he settles down.

Romo gave up five runs in a disastrous eighth inning against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It was a night to forget for the veteran reliever, as he was called for a balk and then proceeded to lose his command en route to a five-run blemish on his stat line. The rough outing ballooned the 34-year-old's ERA to 11.81 in seven appearances. Romo has posted an ERA below three in his past two campaigns, so his ERA won't stay this high for long. That being said, owners in holds leagues may want to look elsewhere to accumulate the stat, as Romo has just accrued two holds in the first few weeks of the regular season.

Romo pitched a scoreless sixth inning to earn his first hold of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers' setup man was used in a non-traditional role -- something manager Dave Roberts is quickly becoming known for -- coming into the game in the sixth inning to face two of the Padres' tougher right-handers (Manuel Margot and Wil Myers) in a close game. Due to the close nature of the game, Romo picked up his first hold of the season. This trend of using the veteran reliever against the toughest right-handed portion of the opponent's lineup in tight games should continue, which could potentially result in more hold opportunities than if he was simply deployed in the eighth inning like most traditional setup men.

Romo (back) will attempt to play catch on Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo felt some soreness in his back on the flight home from the World Baseball Classic earlier in the week, but not much more is known about the severity. He is scheduled to test his back out with some light work today, so the 34-year-old's status should become clearer after the workout.

Romo is experiencing back soreness, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo said that he felt a bit of soreness during his flight back from the World Baseball Classic. While it's entirely possible that it was prompted by being stationary for the duration of the flight, the Dodgers will likely monitor his status to make sure it's nothing serious. Romo is scheduled to participate in baseball activities Friday, so more information regarding his condition should be available afterwards.

Romo was touched up for three runs on four hits Sunday. He only recorded one out before being pulled from Sunday's 11-9 win over Team Venezuela.

EDGE Analysis

The majority of the damage was done on a two-run homer by Victor Martinez. The Dodgers brought Romo in to shore up a shaky middle portion of their bullpen. While he will certainly help in that regard (2.64 ERA in 2016), he was prone to the long ball last season (1.5 HR/9), which could result in some rough outings such as the one he experienced Sunday for Team Mexico.

Romo didn't allow a hit in his lone inning of work for Team Mexico on Thursday. He struck out one in a 10-9 loss to Team Italy.

EDGE Analysis

Romo was used as a setup man for Team Mexico, a role he is currently making a strong bid for with his new club back in the United States. It's a small sample size, but it's worth mentioning that Romo has thrown three scoreless innings so far this spring while striking out six batters. His main competition, Pedro Baez, has yet to pitch in games this spring due to a thumb injury he sustained late in February. Consider Romo the early favorite to win the role of primary setup man out of camp.

Romo pitched in a Dodger uniform for the first time Thursday, striking out the side in his lone inning of work against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Romo was brought in to help bridge the gap from the Dodgers' starting pitchers to Kenley Jansen. Manager Dave Roberts said that he hasn't decided on who his setup man will be, and he may not officially name someone and simply play each situation uniquely. Whatever the order, Romo is expected to help bolster the back end of the bullpen, so there should be a handful of hold opportunities available on a Dodger team that is projected to win 90-plus games.
