The Giants on Wednesday agreed to a two-year contract with closer/photobomber Sergio Romo, avoiding arbitration.
Romo was the final arbitration-eligible Giants player the team had to to agree on a new deal with.
While details of salary aren’t clear, Andrew Baggarly reports…
it’s expected Romo and the club settled in between the club’s $2.675 salary filing and the right-hander’s $4.5 million asking price, with a higher salary for 2014.
It hasn’t been a quiet offseason for Romo since winning the World Series with the Giants. On New Year’s Day, he got into an altercation at the airport in Las Vegas (he was cleared this week).
In 2012, Romo had a 1.79 ERA and 0.849 WHIP. His emergence while taking over closing duties from the injured Brian Wilson has made Wilson expendable for the Giants.
