RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
In 2013, Romo received his first full season as the Giants' closer and came through with flying colors. His saves (38), ERA (2.54), and WHIP (1.08) all ranked in the top five for closers in the National League. His ERA actually rose from 1.79 in 2012 due to his unreal strand rate (90.7 LOB%) returning to a realistic level (78.0 LOB%). Still, it was hard to find anything to complain about from Romo in 2013. He doesn't fit the mold of a typical closer, as his fastball isn't overpowering (87.7 mph), but he relies on pinpoint control and a dominating slider that is considered to be the best in baseball. He will enter 2014 as the unquestioned closer for the Giants, and should remain so barring injury.
Once again Romo proved to be the most valuable reliever in the Giants' bullpen, appearing in 69 games and finishing the season as the club's closer. His 2.70 FIP and 2.61 xFIP were impressive, and there is a possibility he will start the season as the closer once again if Brian Wilson is not re-signed. Romo saw an improved groundball rate (48.5 percent), and it was a significant part of his success against left-handed hitters (60.4 percent), who were held to .221 wOBA. Expect a slight uptick in ERA, as it is unlikely Romo will have a strand rate greater than 90 percent again in 2013.
Romo just finished one of the more dominating relief seasons you'll ever see, posting a 1.50 ERA with a 0.708 WHIP and a ridiculous 70:5 K:BB ratio over 48.0 innings. His 1.49 xFIP would have easily led all pitchers in baseball had he qualified, which raises the question of why wasn't Romo used more? His Frisbee slider is death to righties, producing a .391 OPS against last year, but he's also pretty terrific against left-handers as well (.592 OPS against). Romo is an elite reliever who would be perfectly capable of closing if ever given the opportunity, but as is, he's the top setup man in San Francisco.
Romo was fantastic in 2010, posting a 2.18 ERA and 0.968 WHIP with a 5.0 K/BB ratio. His BABIP has fluctuated mightily the past three seasons, as it was .171 in 2008, .346 in 2009 and .276 last year. Expect that number to settle in the .290-.300 range in 2011, and he should remain an elite reliever thanks to the high strikeout rate. Despite struggling some in the playoffs, Romo will open this season as San Francisco's top setup man and would likely be the alternative to close should Brian Wilson get hurt.
Romo missed the first two months of last season with a sprained elbow, and he posted a 3.97 ERA and 1.206 WHIP with a 41:11 K:BB ratio over 34.0 innings after returning. His incredible numbers in 2008 were bound to regress some (he had a .171 BABIP that year), but Romo remained effective nevertheless. He could emerge as one of the Giants’ primary setup men this season.
Romo was a pleasant surprise last year, finishing with a 2.12 ERA and a miniscule 0.71 WHIP. He struck out 33 batters over 34.0 innings, limiting opponents to a .138 batting average. The .171 BABIP suggests he was quite lucky, and he needs to start inducing more groundballs (0.49 G/F), but Romo is going to be a part of San Francisco’s bullpen in 2009.
Romo had a ridiculously good 2007 season at High-A San Jose, finishing with a 1.36 ERA, 0.754 WHIP and a remarkable 106:15 K:BB ratio over 66.1 innings. Despite being an extreme flyball pitcher, he held batters to just four home runs all season. Still, he'll need to induce more ground balls for him to excel at higher levels, and since he's already 24, the Giants figure to move him up the organization a little more aggressively.
