Bats: R, Throws: R

Sergio Romo allowed no runs and no hits in 2/3 of an inning against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Romo is tied with Joe Smith (LAA) for the most holds in MLB with 18, so despite his lackluster ERA (4.35) and WHIP (1.21) he's a top option for leagues that count the holds category in some way.

Fantasy Impact: Sergio Romo has not been his usual reliable self the last four games, He has given up three runs all earned in just 2.1 innings. Including five hits and one walk, but has six strikeouts, If he continues down this path the Giants may have to reevaluate his setup role.

Sergio Romo gives up lead

Sergio Romo took the mound in the bottom of the eighth with the score tied at three. He was able to get the first out, but Marlon Byrd blasted 79mph slider that had little slide into the left-center field bleachers.

Fantasy Impact: Sergio Romo has pitched fairly well on the season, but he is clearly not the pitcher he was when the Giants won the World Series in 2012. On the year, he has a 4.09 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP. He has struck out 19 in 11 innings pitched. If you are an owner of Santiago Casilla, as he will get innings pitched and will be the one the Giants go to if Casilla gets injured.

Sergio Romo came on in relief and pitched a perfect inning, striking out two.

Fantasy Impact: Romo has been dazzling this season, outside of a two-hit inning versus Arizona, which led to his only two runs allowed during the season. Outside of that inning, he's given up only one hit and two walks in 5.1 IP. If Santiago Casilla were to hurt or falter, Romo would immediately become one of the better closer options in the league.

Sergio Romo struck out two Padres in a tied eighth inning Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: After giving up a massive double to Jacob Lamb in the first game of the season, Romo has looked much better. His slider was vintage Romo. In save-premium leagues, he should be owned as Bruce Bochy has already stated he would be used in spot-save situations. With outings like Thursday's, he may take the role from Santiago Casilla outright if Casilla struggles.

Sergio Romo pitched one perfect inning of relief, striking out one.

Fantasy Impact: Romo's slider was borderline gif-worthy tonight. He seems to have lost his jitters from his first appearance and was dealing. His ERA remains 0.00 and he lowers his season WHIP to 1.50.

Sergio Romo gave up a hit, a walk and recorded a strikeout in 11 pitches in relief, but the hit was a bases-clearing double.

Fantasy Impact: Romo gave up a lot of others' runs on that double, earning runs for Jean Machi and Javier Lopez. Romo was impressive all Spring Training, but seems to have picked up right where he left off in 2014. His final line hides the disastrous nature of his hit allowed.

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.
