San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said RP Santiago Casilla will be the team's closer for now. Bochy likes to use RP Jeremy Affeldt in the sixth and seventh inning because he can pitch multiple innings.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should look to add Casilla if he is still available in their leagues, but it is not known how long he will hold onto that job.

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo has been removed from the closer role, according to manager Bruce Bochy. RPs Santiago Casilla and Jeremy Affeldt will share closing duties for the immediate future. Romo is expected to pitch in the seventh and eighth innings for the time being, and there is a possibility he could regain his old job down the line.
Fantasy Tip: Casilla and Affeldt should be added immediately in all fantasy leagues. Romo is 0-3 with a 10.64 ERA in his last 12 appearances and has blown five saves this season. He has allowed six home runs this year (tying a career high) and opponents were hitting .455 against him in his last five games, taking advantage of an ineffective slider. That being said, it might be worth it to hang on to Romo if he proves he can turn things around and reclaim the closer's job.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy met with CL Sergio Romo after his two blown saves over the weekend and Romo's day off Sunday, June 15. Bochy said Romo is still his closer, and the two chalked up the blown saves to bad luck.
Fantasy Tip: Romo had been pretty good until recently. Hopefully the reassurance will help get him back on track. It's a good idea to handcuff him with Santiago Casilla
