Romo (non-throwing shoulder) threw a scoreless inning with two strikeouts in Sunday's spring training tie against Toronto.
Romo was limited early in spring training with a left shoulder strain, but it doesn't look like a worry for the regular season. The right-hander was effective after he was traded to the Twins in 2019, posting a 3.18 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over 22.2 innings, and he figures to play a prominent role in the bullpen again.
Romo (non-throwing shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Romo is dealing with a left shoulder strain that the team has described as minor. The right-hander was effective after he was traded to the Twins in 2019, posting a 3.18 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over 22.2 innings, and he figures to play a prominent role in the bullpen again this season once he's healthy.
Romo is dealing with a left shoulder strain that will limit him for several days, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Romo's injury doesn't sound too serious, but the Twins will exercise caution and limit his workload over the next few days to preserve his long-term health. The right-hander was effective after he was traded to the Twins in 2019, posting a 3.18 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over 22.2 innings, and he figures to play a prominent role in the bullpen again this season once he's healthy.
Romo signed a one-year contract with the Twins on Monday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.
Romo began his 2019 campaign with the Marlins, but he was dealt to the Twins near the trade deadline. He rewarded his new team by posting a 3.18 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with a 27:4 K:BB and three saves over 22.2 innings of work. With Taylor Rogers racking up 30 saves a year ago, Romo isn't expected to be the team's everyday closer, though he could see the occasional save opportunity while also handling mid-to-high-leverage situations in 2020.
Romo (knee) threw a scoreless eighth inning in Tuesday's win over Washington.
Romo appeared to hurt his left knee walking off the mound at the end of his last outing Saturday, but said after the game he was fine. The Twins will need him to stay healthy as he's become an important part of back end of the bullpen since coming over from the Marlins. Taylor Rogers has been the primary closer, but Romo has finished the ninth for saves based on matchups or when Rogers is unavailable.
Romo said he was fine after leaving Saturday's game against the Indians with a left knee injury, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Romo wears a brace on his left knee as he apparently has some recurring issues, but he said after the game that he's OK. The veteran right-hander has thrown the past three contests, so he may be unavailable to pitch Sunday regardless.
Romo appeared to sustain a left leg injury during Saturday's game against the Indians, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The veteran right-hander wasn't removed mid-inning since the injury occurred on his final pitch of the frame, but he started to limp off the field before receiving support from the athletic trainers. Romo struck out two while allowing one run on two hits during the eighth inning, earning the hold.
Romo blew the save Friday, allowing one run and one hit in one inning during a 6-2 extra-innings loss to the Indians.
Tasked with protecting a one-run lead, Romo allowed leadoff hitter Oscar Mercado to get aboard with a triple in the eighth inning. He scored on a Yasiel Puig sacrifice fly, sticking Romo with the blown save. The run snapped a streak of six straight scoreless appearances for the right-hander, who now has a 3.38 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 16 innings since joining the Twins.
Romo gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning to record his 20th save of the season in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.
The veteran right-hander was charged with a blown save Wednesday while working in the eighth inning, but Romo is now 3-for-3 in save chances for the Twins while handling the ninth. More importantly, Taylor Rogers was called upon in the eighth in this one, suggesting Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli is willing to play matchups at the end of games -- Texas sent three straight right-handed hitters to the plate to begin the ninth -- rather than treating Rogers as his sole closing option. Romo may well collect a handful more saves before the regular season is done.
Romo worked a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his 19th save of the season, and second as a Twin, in a 7-5 win over the Brewers.
Taylor Rogers pitched both Saturday and Sunday, giving up a game-winning grand slam in the latter, so manager Rocco Baldelli turned to Romo instead in the ninth and the veteran right-hander came through. He now has a sharp 1.35 ERA, 0.30 WHIP and 6:0 K:BB in 6.2 innings since joining the Minnesota bullpen.
Romo gave up a hit and struck out two over 1.1 scoreless innings to record his 18th save of the season -- and first as a member of the Twins -- in Friday's 11-9 win over the Royals.
Taylor Rogers had pitched three straight days and was unavailable Friday, so Romo got the call after Sam Dyson coughed up three runs in the eighth inning to create the save situation. That usage suggests Romo would be ahead of Dyson in the closer pecking order should anything happen to Rogers, but for now both right-handers will have to settle for setup roles in Minnesota.
Romo, minor-league pitcher Chris Vallimont and a player to be named later were traded from the Marlins to the Twins for minor-league first baseman Lewin Diaz on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Romo served as Miami's closer this season after inking a one-year deal, going 17-for-18 in save opportunities with a 3.58 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 33:13 K:BB across 37.2 innings. The 36-year-old figures to lose much of his fantasy appeal due to the move, since lefty Taylor Rogers seems likely to remain in the closer's role with his 2.27 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 59:8 K:BB. The Twins' late-inning plans could be altered further if the team makes another acquisition before Wednesday's trade deadline.
The Twins are nearing completion of a trade to acquire Romo from the Marlins on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Romo inked a one-year deal with rebuilding Miami this offseason, so it's no surprise to see him about to be on the move with the trade deadline only a few days away. The veteran right-hander is 17-for-18 in save chances with a 3.58 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 33:13 K:BB though 37.2 innings. Romo's fantasy value seems likely to take a hit unless he manages to take over closing duties from left-hander Taylor Rogers, who has a 2.27 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 59:8 K:BB for the Twins.
Romo allowed two hits and struck out one through a scoreless ninth inning to record his 17th save in a 2-0 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

Romo struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to secure the save Saturday in Atlanta.
Romo hadn't pitched since last Saturday but didn't show much rust as he only allowed an infield single. The 36-year-old is 16-for-17 in save opportunities and has a 4.22 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 26:13 K:BB over 32 innings.
Romo struck out one in a perfect ninth inning to record the save in a 9-6 victory over the Phillies on Saturday.

Romo (knee) will be available out of the Marlins' bullpen Friday night, Craig Mish of FNTSY Sports Radio reports.
Romo was removed from Thursday's game after bruising his left knee in a collision with the Nationals' Trea Turner, but he is apparently no worse for the wear a day later.

Romo suffered an injury to his left leg while trying to cover first base in the ninth inning and was removed from the game, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Romo remained in the game briefly but was ultimately forced out of the contest due to the pain. While there's no official word on the severity, if Romo is forced to miss time the Marlins could rely on a number of options to close out games. The most likely options appear to be Adam Conley and Nick Anderson.
Romo picked up the save after allowing one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday night against the Phillies.
Romo recorded the first two outs without issue, though he would allow the winning run to come to the plate after surrendering a single to left. He would then slam the door by inducing a flyout. It hasn't always been easy for Romo this season, but he's converted on each of his last two save opportunities and continues to see chances late in close ballgames. He now owns a 4.76 ERA with 23 strikeouts over 28.1 innings this season.
