Sergio Romo is in the second year of a two-year, $9 million deal which took him through his arbitration years. With free agency looming, however, there will likely not be a new deal between the Giants and their closer. Jon Heyman reports that Romo and the team have agreed to hold off on contract talks, likely until the end of the season.
Committing big money to closers is usually a sucker’s bet, and that’s true even if Romo is currently 10-for-10 in save chances with 1.88 ERA so far this season. If I was Brian Sabean I’d wait too.
