Dodgers make Romo signing official

Not that there was ever any doubt but the Dodgers made their acquisition of right-handed reliever Sergio Romo official on Wednesday afternoon, the same day that pitchers and catchers reported for spring training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona.

Any doubts that Sergio Romo had been signed by the Dodgers disappeared when he arrived for spring training on Wednesday morning when Dodgers pitchers and catchers reported.

The deal was acknowledged as having been completed on February 6, 2017 but the Dodgers remained mum because they did not have a spot for Romo on their 40-man roster. That all changed on Tuesday, February 14, 2016, which was technically the first day that they could officially move right-hander Yimi Garcia to the 60-man disabled list. Garcia underwent Tommy John surgery on October 25, 2016 and, as such, is lost for the entire 2017 season.

Romo’s deal is for one year at a reported $3 million. According to our good friend Eric Stephen over at True Blue LA, he can receive an additional $250,000 in performance bonuses. The soon-to-be 34-year-old Brawley, California and lifelong Dodger fan (in spite of his nine seasons with the San Francisco Giants) will receive $125,000 if he appears in 50 games and another $125,000 if he makes 60 appearances.
