Dodgers: The Best Waiver Trade Deadline Targets
Yeah I know he was bad during his time as a Dodger, but he has since turned it around and become one of the Rays most reliable relievers. Heck, he has even started a game for them as a part of that bullpen revolution that the Rays started.
He has been very good since the all-star break. Boasting a 2.53 ERA/ 0.75 WHIP/ .211 BAA since the break. He has been good in a time that the Dodgers relievers have been hard to watch and you can’t overlook that.
Romo was not bad before that having an ERA around 3.50. Which is especially impressive considering the firepower in the AL East. Two of the most dangerous lineups are in that division. Both the Yankees and Red Sox have explosive lineups and play in hitter-friendly parks.
Even though he did have a bad time in Los Angeles in his first stint, it would not hurt to give him a second chance. This is especially the case because of how poorly the middle relievers have performed. Romo could replace Chargois or Baez in the bullpen. He has been better than both this season.
He also brings an awful lot of playoff experience in his time with the hated ones up north. Something that could be very helpful come October if the Dodgers find themselves there. Either way, Romo would be a big help towards getting to the playoffs. Romo has been versatile this year. He can come out and give you 2 solid innings or just get matchup out, he performs whenever he is called upon.
