According to multiple sources, the San Francisco Giants and right-handed reliever Sergio Romo have agreed upon a new one-year contract to keep him with the Black and Orange for at least another year.
The terms of the contract weren't available, but seeing that Romo requesting $1.75 million and was offered $1.3 million from the Giants on Tuesday, the $1.5 million range would seem logical. The other-other beard in the bullpen posted a 1.50 ERA and 70/5 K/BB ratio across 48 innings last season. The specialist kept right handed batters to a .150 batting average last year and a .177 on-base percentage. He'll likely be the set-up man for Brian Wilson once again next season.
With almost all of the arbitration eligible players taken care of now by the Giants, they can focus on trying to rangle Tim Lincecum before hitting the arbitration table.
