Dodgers Rumors: Sergio Romo Contract Agreement Pending Physical

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ search for a right-handed relief pitcher seemingly came to an end last week when the club was said to have reached an agreement on a one-year contract with former San Francisco Giants closer Sergio Romo.

That came on the heels of a report that indicated Romo was selecting from signing with the Dodgers or an unidentified team. Soon after indications he’d agreed to a deal with the Dodgers, the unnamed team reportedly increased their offer.

After the small delay, Romo and the Dodgers appear to have again struck an agreement, with the contract pending a physical, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:

Romo’s contract guarantees him a base salary of $3 million and includes incentives, per Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball:

Romo missed much of the first half of the 2016 season due to a flexor strain near his right elbow. The injury limited the 33-year-old to a career-low 30.2 innings.

Romo recorded four saves and pitched to a 2.64 ERA, 3.80 FIP and 1.08 WHIP, while appearing in 40 games for the Giants last season. He participated in the Mexican Winter League, yielding a 0.93 ERA with 10 strikeouts in nine appearances for the Charros de Jalisco.

The Brawley, Calif., native then joined the Mexican team for the 2017 Caribbean Series. Thus far, Romo only appeared in one game, allowing one run on three hits in one inning of work.

Over the past nine seasons with the Giants, he went 32-26 with 84 saves, a 2.58 ERA, 2.71 FIP and 0.95 WHIP.
