Giants | Sergio Romo suffers setback

Tue, 31 May 2016 14:42:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (elbow) is suffering from a tender elbow but an MRI exam showed no structural damage. The Giants plan to hold him out for four to five days, and he won't be activated from the disabled list soon.

Fantasy Tip: Romo can be one of the more valuable eighth-inning setup men when he's healthy. As you can see, that's far from the case right now. Scoop him up if you're desperate for saves or own Santiago Casilla, but you can now hold off on that for a bit.

Giants | Sergio Romo's rehab schedule

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:24:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (forearm) is set to begin his rehab with Class AAA Sacramento Monday, May 23, and make additional appearances with them every other day until Monday, May 30, when he is expected to rejoin the team if there are no setbacks. He'll "largely" be the eighth inning guy again.

Fantasy Tip: Romo was out to a nice start this year, picking up a hold each of his four appearances before going down with injury. He hasn't pitched since April 10, so there might be some rust involved, but when he's settled in again, the 33-year-old right-hander is one of the best set-up men in the business and should be owned in all leagues that score holds.

Giants | Sergio Romo beginning rehab assignment

Mon, 23 May 2016 10:38:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (forearm) will start his rehab assignment with Class AAA Sacramento Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is at least a week away from returning to the Giants bullpen, where he'll likely resume his role as the primary eighth-inning setup man to Santiago Casilla. Hunter Strickland is another option in the ninth if Casilla falters, though, so Romo's fantasy value is very limited as a handcuff for Casilla owners.

Giants | Sergio Romo roughly two weeks away

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:42:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (forearm) threw an extended spring training outing Friday, May 20, and he will join Class AAA Sacramento for a rehab assignment next. Romo is 10 to 14 days from returning to the Giants, manager Bruce Bochy said Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Romo has very limited fantasy value. Hunter Strickland is likely next in line for the closer role if Santiago Casilla implodes or is injured, and Romo has probably seen his time pass in the ninth-inning role for San Francisco.

Giants | Sergio Romo progressing

Thu, 05 May 2016 23:22:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (forearm) has been playing long toss from 90 feet and will throw from a mound Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Romo isn't worth owning in many leagues and has likely fallen behind Hunter Strickland in the pecking order should Santiago Casilla falter.

Giants | Sergio Romo throws on flat ground

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:44:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (elbow) threw off flat ground from 90 feet Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: The Gigantes are being cautious with the 33-year-old, but when he's ready to return he should slot back in as the eighth-inning setup man to Santiago Casilla. Casilla has had his problems in the ninth inning and could be on a short leash, so stash Romo now if he's available in deeper leagues if you're speculating on saves.

Giants | Sergio Romo playing catch

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:38:13 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (elbow) played catch from 60 feet Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are being careful with Romo, a relief pitcher who throws a lot of sliders. With him out, Hunter Strickland's role as a setup main has grown, but Santiago Casilla remains the closer in San Fran and has been strong so far this year. Casilla can be shaky, though, and Strickland should be handcuffed or picked up if you're looking for saves. There's no timetable for when Romo will return.

Giants | Sergio Romo brought along slowly

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 16:50:43 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (elbow) will resume playing catch Friday, April 29, but he will be brought along slowly.

Fantasy Tip: Romo was likely drafted in deeper leagues as a handcuff option to Santiago Casilla in the late innings for the Giants. Romo should be left to most waiver wires until he's ready to return. In the meantime and in the long term, Hunter Strickland has some intrigue as a possible candidate to see some save chances if Casilla struggles or is injured.

Giants | Sergio Romo not expected to need surgery

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 08:57:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (elbow) isn't expected to need surgery for his "cranky" elbow, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's slider-heavy approach leaves him vulnerable to elbow injuries like this one. Even if he avoids surgery, it looks like his DL stint will last longer than the alotted 15 days. This bumps Hunter Strickland's fantasy value up a tad, as he'll now serve as the main setup guy to closer Santiago Casilla.

Giants | Sergio Romo headed to disabled list

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 16:14:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (elbow) was placed on the disabled list with a flexor muscle strain in his right arm Thursday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Romo was serving in a set-up role to closer Santiago Casilla, so with Romo on the disabled list, Hunter Strickland projects to be next in line for save opportunities. Romo can be dropped in the majority of seasonal formats.
