Who doesn't love a little nostalgia? In what's sure to be a widely popular move, the San Francisco Giants are reportedly signing legendary reliever Sergio Romo to a non-roster deal and will give him the chance to pitch in front of the home fans one more time. The SF Giants play the Oakland A's in an exhibition game on March 27 at Oracle Park, and Romo is expected to appear one last time in the orange and black.
Romo was legitimately one of the best relievers in baseball during his Giants career. Thanks to a devastating slider that hitters simply couldn't recognize out of his hand, Romo boasted a superb 2.58 ERA in 515 games with the San Francisco Giants from 2008 through 2016.
From a former great reliever to a current great reliever: Camilo Doval made an awesome appearance in the WBC yesterday. His development is discussed, particularly how the sinker he started throwing in July completely unlocked his arsenal. Just 25 years old and under club control through 2027, Doval is a huge bright spot for the SF Giants now and moving forward. The Mets weren't so fortunate with their excellent closer, as Edwin Diaz was injured while celebrating Puerto Rico's win over the Dominican Republic. He will likely miss the season.
