Sergio Romo is heading back to the Bay, signing with A’s [report]


A Giants legend is coming back home…sort of.

Sergio Romo is signing a one-year deal with the Oakland A’s according to Ken Rosenthal, Romo has bounced around the league since leaving the Giants in 2016, featuring stops with the Dodgers, Rays, Marlins and most recently with the Twins in 2020.

Romo, 37, was solid in 24 relief appearances last season, posting a 4.05 ERA and 1.15 WHIP while striking out over 10 per nine innings. He reached the playoffs with Minnesota the last two seasons.

Romo was an integral part of the bullpen on all three Giants World Series teams, was the team’s primary closer for stretches in 2012-14, and made the All-Star team with San Francisco in 2013.

The A’s also reportedly re-signed former Giants reliever Yusmeiro Petit, who has pitched in Oakland for the last three seasons.

The Giants face the A’s at Oracle Park on June 25-27, and in Oakland on August 20-22.
