RP - OAK
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the A's have come to terms with free agent RHP Sergio Romo on a one-year deal.
Oakland also signed Yusmeiro Petit tonight, so they're bolstering their bullpen with spring training around the corner. Romo will certainly be in the mix for saves in Oakland this season. A's GM David Forst said earlier this offseason that LHP Jake Diekman was the top internal candidate. Of course, as a right-hander, Romo could have the inside track now.
The Minnesota Twins declined Sergio Romo's club option for 2021.
While Romo boasts a career 2.95 ERA, the veteran righty was average in 2020, going 1-2 with a 4.05 ERA. This move comes as no surprise, but Romo could still potentially re-sign with the Twins at a lower price in the offseason. Even if he doesn't end up back in Minnesota, expect him to be on an MLB roster come 2021.
Sergio Romo was called on to get the final out of Wednesday's game against the Tigers. He allowed a three-run homer to Miguel Cabrera, but got Candelario to ground out to first to end the game.
It wasn't pretty, but it could've been worse as two runs were charged to previous pitcher Caleb Theilbar. Romo has a 3.15 ERA and .95 WHIP on the year.
Minnesota closer Sergio Romo threw a scoreless ninth to save a 7-5 win over Cleveland on Sunday. Romo struck out one in the frame.
Romo made things interesting by allowing two hits but he was able to keep Cleveland off the scoreboard. Romo now has a 3.12 ERA and four saves on the year.
Sergio Romo induced a ground out and two fly outs in Monday's loss to the White Sox.
Minnesota closer Taylor Rogers took the loss on Monday and sports an unsightly 4.38 ERA and 1.54 WHIP, but the fact remains that Romo only has three saves on the year. Should the Twins decide to make a switch, Romo would likely get the first crack at the job.
