After testing the open market as a free agent Sergio Romo has re-signed with the Giants for two years and $15 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com.
Romo lost the closer job this year and his overall numbers slipped, but he finished the season by allowing just two runs in his final 23 appearances along with a 23/3 K/BB ratio.
At age 31 his durability is a big question mark, but he’s been one of the best relievers in baseball for basically his entire career and the Giants obviously know what they have in Romo after seven seasons together.
PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks extended manager Torey Lovullo’s contract through the 2024 season.
The deal is the third straight one-year extension for the longest-tenured manager in team history.
Lovullo is 446-483 in seven seasons, with one playoff appearance.
Lovullo led the Diamondbacks to the 2017 National League division series his first season and a winning record the next two. Arizona general manager Mike Hazen stuck with Lovullo after an injury-filled 110-loss season in 2021 and the Diamondbacks have enjoyed a resurgence this year.
The Diamondbacks enter against Atlanta 35-24, tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best record in the NL.
