Mets: How would some of the available relievers fare in Flushing?
Romo was a huge part of the bullpen that saw the Giants win three World Series over the last seven seasons. Even more intriguing is that he has worked as a closer in the past. With a domestic violence suspension potentially coming down on closer Jeurys Familia to start the season, New York could use all the veteran leadership they can to get them through that stretch.
Through nine seasons at the major league level, Romo has posted a 2.58 ERA, including a 2.64 ERA last season (his lowest since his 2013 All-Star season, when it was 2.54).
We also saw Romo only appear in 40 games last season, his lowest since his rookie season in 2008 (29 games), as well as only pitch in 30.2 innings (his lowest total ever). He gave up two more home runs last season (five compared to three) than he gave up in 2015, even though he appeared in 30 less games and 26.9 less innings in 2016.
