Giants, Romo avoid arbitration

The SportsXchange

The Giants and closer Sergio Romo avoided arbitration when the two sides agreed to terms of a two-year deal on Wednesday.

Romo became the Giants' closer last year after Brian Wilson was injured. Romo had a career-high 14 saves with a 4-2 record and 1.79 ERA during the regular season.

The 29-year-old is slated to be the Giants' primary closer this season. In five seasons, Romo is 20-9 with a 2.20 ERA. He has struck out 277 batters and walked just 48 in 233 1/3 innings.

Terms of the deal were not released.

In the 2012 postseason during the Giants run to the World Series title, Romo allowed one earned run in 10 outings and had four saves, including three in the World Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers.
