He has played for the San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, Tampa Bay Rays, Miami Marlins, Minnesota Twins, and Oakland Athletics in the Major League Baseball. His primary pitch is his slider, which he has used as a closer in the past.
Romo grew up as a Dodgers fan in Brawley, California. He went to four different institutions before being selected by the Giants in the 28th round of the 2005 draft.
In 2008, he made his big league debut with the Giants, appearing in 45 games. When the Giants won the World Series in 2010, he became the setup man for closer Brian Wilson.
In 2011, he had a 1.50 ERA and subsequently became the Giants’ closer in 2012, getting three saves in the World Series as the Giants won the championship.

Romo signed with the Dodgers for 2017 after spending two seasons with the Giants. In 2018, he was designated for assignment and sent to the Rays.
In 2018, he was the first pitcher employed in Tampa Bay’s opener plan by manager Kevin Cash. He was named Tampa Bay’s closer later that year.
He signed with the Marlins as a free agent following the season and served as their closer until he was traded to the Twins midway through the season.
