San Francisco Giants RP Santiago Casilla (arm) will be given a few days off due to arm fatigue, according to manager Bruce Bochy. RPs Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez will close out games based on matchups.
Fantasy Tip: Romo is the righty, has the experience and will probably see the bulk of the opportunities with Casilla out. He's likely gone in NL-only leagues, but if you're fetching for saves in mixed leagues, grab him.

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (knee) suffered a hyperextended knee Tuesday, June 23, against the San Diego Padres and left the game. His status was not immediately known.
Fantasy Tip: If it's just a hyperextended knee, Romo could miss a very small amount of time or be considered day-to-day. Jeremy Affeldt and Santiago Casilla could see save chances if Romo is unable to pitch.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said RP Sergio Romo could be used in certain ninth-inning situations this season based on matchups, although he reiterated that RP Santiago Casilla is still the team's closer.
Fantasy Tip: This appears to be good news for owners who selected Romo as a handcuff option in fantasy baseball drafts. If Casilla gets off to a slow start this season while Romo thrives, he could easily regain San Francisco's closing job.

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (shoulder, hand) threw a bullpen session Saturday, March 7, and has been cleared to pitch in Cactus League games.
Fantasy Tip: Romo will likely begin the season as a setup man to Santiago Casilla but could wind up regaining his ninth-inning role if Casilla struggles. He may be worth drafting in the later rounds of NL-only and mixed leagues as a handcuff option.

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo's (shoulder, hand) shoulder is feeling better and should be fine even though his pitching hand was hit by a ball while he was running, according to manager Bruce Bochy.
Fantasy Tip: Romo could take a few days off to let things heal, but it looks like he should be fine for the regular season. He likely will start the season as a setup man but could be a closer option if Santiago Casilla struggles in the job. Owners could consider selecting Romo in one of the later rounds of mixed league drafts as a possible handcuff to Casilla.

San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo (shoulder) is being held back in camp as a precaution with a tender shoulder, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Romo hasn't had any tests on his shoulder yet.
Fantasy Tip: Romo is slated to open the 2015 season as the setup man to Santiago Casilla in SF. As a result, he won't get much fantasy love outside of serving as a handcuff to Casilla. Romo's sore shoulder isn't a good start to spring training.
