The Los Angeles Dodgers to sign former San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo. The contract is said to be a one-year deal worth $3 million. According to Andy McCullough of the LA Times, Romo must pass a team physical before the deal can become official.
Romo, missed over two months in 2016 due to an elbow injury but finished the season strong posting a 2.64 ERA, while dishing out 33Ks in 30.2 innings pitched. He will give the Dodgers much needed depth in the bull-pen and should be the primary set-up man for closer Kenley Jansen.
What does Romo bring to the Dodgers?
Romo will fill a key void left by Joe Blanton. He will also bring a winning pedigree to the Dodgers, as he has won three World Series titles with the Giants.
