Minnesota has led the AL Central Division for just about the entire season, but the surging Cleveland Indians have gotten within a game of first place after their win over the Kansas City Royals, combined with the Twins' loss to the Chicago White Sox Saturday night. The 36-year-old Romo brings over plenty of Postseason experience in his career, including three World Series rings with the San Francisco Giants.
Romo has been the primary closer for the last-place Marlins, recording 17 saves in 37.2 innings, posting a 3.58 ERA for the season. The right-hander was a big part of the Giants' World Series wins, including getting the final out of the 2012 World Series by striking out Detroit Tigers' slugger Miguel Cabrera. In 23.1 career Postseason innings pitched, he has recorded a 3.09 ERA. He leaves a Marlins team that is moving in on a 100-loss season at 39-63, as the hurler will now add much-needed depth in the Twins' bullpen with his career 2.91 ERA and 126 career saves.
