The Tampa Bay Rays have been out finding depth in the bullpen and they found that in the recently DFA’ed Sergio Romo.
Sergio Romo was designated for assignment by the Los Angeles Dodgers mid-week and it did not take a whole lot of time for his name to resurface. This season, Romo has not been putting up the greatest numbers as he carries a 6.12 ERA in 30 games this season. The Tampa Bay Rays are still in the race for the division but bulking up their bullpen was a need. Sergio Romo will be used as a late-inning relief pitcher.
The addition of Sergio Romo could not be a stoppage for exploring other potential trades. The Rays are still targeting pitchers to add in their bullpen with the most notable name being Miami Marlins closer, A.J. Ramos.
