Romo fired a scoreless inning in Friday's 13-6 extra-inning loss to the Red Sox, allowing one hit.

EDGE Analysis

Romo's ERA is down to a sparkling 1.73 following Friday's outing, his fourth consecutive scoreless appearance. He's blanked the opposition in 11 of his last 12 trips to the mound overall and has a .183 BAA, .217 wOBA allowed and 23:5 K:BB over the 26 innings across his 20 appearances since making his Rays debut on July 24. What's more, Romo is seeing plenty of work, as half of those outings have consisted of more than one inning.

Romo (2-0) struck out the side in a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Cardinals. He also allowed one hit.

EDGE Analysis

Romo disposed of the potent trio of Stephen Piscotty, Randal Grichuk and Matt Carpenter on swinging strikeouts, nailing down his second win in a Rays uniform and extending his hitting streak to seven games in the process. The 34-year-old right-hander now has a 1.10 ERA in 16.1 August innings overall and has notched his two victories in back-to-back outings.

Romo notched his third hold in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jays, firing a perfect 1.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Along with Steve Cishek, Romo has proven to be a solid veteran bullpen acquisition for the Rays, as he's now posted five consecutive scoreless efforts. The 34-year-old right-hander hasn't missed many bats over that span (one strikeout over his last five innings), but he's lowered his ERA from 3.72 to 2.20 while allowing only one hit. He's also enjoying a brisk workload, having made nine appearances over the last three weeks.

Romo fired 1.2 scoreless innings in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Red Sox, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

The move to the American League has been relatively successful for Romo, who has three scoreless efforts over six appearances in a Rays uniform. The 34-year-old has worked at least an inning in three straight outings as well, so manager Kevin Cash appears comfortable relying on him for multi-inning assignments if necessary. He's also afforded Romo a brisk workload, having already sent him out on seven occasions over his first 16 days with the club.

Romo was credited with his first hold in a Rays uniform in Thursday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Yankees, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old was asked to protect a 5-3 lead when he came on with one out in the seventh and was able to get out of the frame by striking out Gary Sanchez with a man on. After debuting in a low-leverage scenario against the Orioles on Monday, manager Kevin Cash upped the ante somewhat Thursday by bringing Romo in with a narrow lead. Therefore, the former closer could see some additional hold opportunities in the short term as the Rays look to determine how trustworthy he might be after a rough stint with the Dodgers earlier this season.

Romo allowed an earned run on two hits over one inning in Monday's 5-0 loss to the Orioles. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever threw 20 pitches in his Rays debut and recorded first-pitch strikes on four of the five batters he faced. However, he allow an RBI single and sacrifice fly after taking over for starter Blake Snell with runners on base, with the run going on his ledger. Romo is likely to get frequent work in some low-leverage scenarios as manager Kevin Cash looks to figure out what he has in the former closer.

The Rays activated Romo on Monday, making him available for the team's series opener against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The Rays acquired Romo via trade late Saturday, but he wasn't formally added to 40-man roster until Monday, when the team released Rickie Weeks (shoulder) to create room for him. The owner of 84 career saves, Romo will bring ample experience to the Rays' bullpen, but based on how he had previously performed with the Dodgers this season, it's unclear if he'll actually represent an upgrade over any of their existing setup options. Romo compiled a 6.12 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over 25 innings before Los Angeles designated him for assignment last week.

Romo, who the Rays acquired late Saturday for cash considerations, has the confidence of the organization despite recent struggles, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I think any time a guy who throws mid to upper 80s, when they hit a rough patch, it's easy to say he's toast, he's done," GM Erik Neander said Sunday. "The way that we look at it is we think what he brings to the table, the ability to miss bats, a lot of that's still there."

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old reliever often looked like a shadow of his former self over his 25 innings with the Dodgers this season, posting a 6.12 ERA and career-worst 4.3 BB/9. However, it's his extensive body of work prior to 2017 that has the Rays cautiously optimistic that a change of scenery will bring out the best of what Romo has left to offer. The organization actually had keen interest in the former closer during the offseason, with his career 0.98 WHIP and .189 BAA versus right-handed hitters serving as two particularly appealing factors. Now that he's finally arrived in Tampa, manager Kevin Cash will experiment with how best to deploy the three-time World Series winner out of the bullpen, with Romo most likely to begin his acclimation in some low-leverage scenarios.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers just cast Romo off the 40-man roster, and the Rays jumped in and added him to the organizational bullpen mix. Romo has a 6.12 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 31:12 K:BB in 25 innings this season, so he is unlikely to see any high-leverage work if he is able to earn a spot on the active roster.

Romo was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Something didn't seem right after Romo was used just once in the month of July, although it's hard to blame manager Dave Roberts for not pitching him given his 6.12 ERA in 25 innings pitched this season. His major-league experience could attract some interest while he's exposed to waivers, but the veteran reliever will need to right the ship quickly if he wants to sniff the big leagues again. Grant Dayton returned from the disabled list to replace him on the active roster.
