Giants activated Sergio Romo from the disabled list
The Giants announced on Monday afternoon that the club activated reliever Sergio Romo from the disabled list, optioned pitcher Albert Suarez to Triple-A Sacramento, and designated pitcher Michael Broadway for assignment.
Romo, 33, has been out since mid-April due to a flexor strain in his right elbow. He was rehabbing in late May but experienced fatigue and was shut down, prolonging his absence. Prior to the injury, he had allowed a run on one hit and one walk with one strikeout in 3 1/3 innings.
Though Romo has lost his role as the Giants’ closer over the last two seasons, he has still proven to be a reliable reliever. His return should be a nice boost for the bullpen.
