Closer for the San Francisco Giants
Sergio Romo Biography
Sergio Romo was born March 4, 1983 and is an American right-handed professional baseball pitcher for the San Francisco Giants of Major League baseball. He is well-known as the closer for the San Francisco Giants, and recorded the last out against Miguel Cabrera in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series, winning it for the Giants.
Romo was drafted by the Giants in the 28th round of the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft.
Romo had his contract purchased from Double-A Connecticut by the San Francisco Giants on June 24, 2008. He made his debut on June 26, 2008, against the Cleveland Indians, striking out two in an inning pitched. Romo was designated for assignment on August 6, and was eventually sent to the minors, but was recalled on August 16, 2008. He played winter baseball with the Aguilas de Mexicali of the Mexican Pacific League. In nine relief appearances, Romo made six of seven attempted saves and a 2.89 ERA.
Romo started the 2009 season on the disabled list, and was activated on May 30, 2009. He completed his first major league save on July 7, 2009 against the Florida Marlins. He got the last two outs of the game, both of which were via the strikeout.
In 2010, Romo was part of the San Francisco World Series team, acting as the team's primary setup man through much of the season. He gained notoriety for being one of the team's "Beards", along with LHP Jeremy Affeldt and closer Brian Wilson. In the National League Division Series, Romo gave up three runs in two-thirds of an inning pitched, but through the National League Championship Series and World Series, he pitched 3 scoreless innings.
In 2011, Romo became the fifth reliever to throw 9 or more consecutive perfect innings, retiring thirty straight batters in 10 innings over a span of fourteen games. His stat line for the year was: 1.50 ERA, 13.1 K/9, and .9 BB/9. His 2011 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA) of 0.91 remains the best of all Major League relief pitchers for the season.
In 2012, Romo did not allow an earned run until the 17th of May. He closed the final Game 4 against the Tigers in the 2012 World Series, and struck out Miguel Cabrera for the last out and the Giants' win.
Romo features three pitches: a slider that sits 75-79 mph which he uses against right handed batters, a two seam fastball sitting 88-90, and a change up which he uses against left handed hitters, sitting 80-83.
