The Boston Red Sox reportedly have their eye on a veteran reliever in free agency.
Right-hander Sergio Romo is drawing significant interest from multiple teams including Boston, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network. A deal is expected to get done during the Winter Meetings this week.
Romo played for the Rays in 2017 and 2018 when new Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom was in the Tampa Bay front office. The 36-year-old was used as an "opener" in five games during that '18 campaign.
Last season with the Miami Marlins and Minnesota Twins, Romo tallied 20 saves and posted a 3.43 ERA in appearances.
For his 12-year career, Romo boasts a 2.92 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. He was a World Series champion with the San Francisco Giants in 2012 and an All-Star in 2013.
