Fantasy Impact: This is the first real move the Giants have made this off-season after losing several pieces to free agency and being out bid on other free agents. Romo was the closer for the Giants in the latter portion of 2012 and all of 2013 prior to losing his job to Santiago Casilla last year. Romo faltered last year, but only his HR/9 was significantly out of the norm. Romo is a bounce-back candidate for 2015, so if Casilla falters, Romo may regain his role.

Fantasy Impact: Romo came into the majors with the Giants and rewarded them with an all-star season in 2013. 2014 was a different story as he lost his reliever role which hurt his SV numbers. If the Giants bring Romo back, his value will primarily come in the form of Holds.
