Sergio Romo is set to make his return from the DL on Tuesday to help contribute mid-series against the Mets.
Romo has been sidelined due to a sprained ankle and hasn’t pitched since June 4th. Romo had a terrific start to the year but a harsh decline has brought his season line to having ERA of 6.41 in 24 calls out of the ‘pen.
The Dodgers’ bullpen has been worked hard as of late and it shows. The bullpen is starting to waiver; the Dodgers are fortunate that the offense continues to put up runs at a rate that makes the opposing pitching staff quiver in their sleep. The Dodger’s look to Romo to be a veteran arm that can work out of jams and hold the game for Jansen.
Today, the #Dodgers reinstated Sergio Romo from the 10-day DL and optioned Josh Fields to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

In order to make room for Romo, Josh Fields has been demoted to Triple-A. Fields has had a fair season so far, with an ERA of 3.00 over 27 innings. With guys like Chris Hatcher slowly struggling, it’s fair to predict that Fields will be back soon.
