Dodgers News: Sergio Romo Took Discount to Join Los Angeles

Sergio Romo was a Dodger at heart. He and his family grew up rooting for the team, and even after years in San Francisco, it appears Romo valued wearing the “LA” hat.

Romo took “significantly less” to join the organization.

That’s a coup for L.A., which didn’t want to commit a multi-year deal to any reliever. The Dodgers also had interest in Joe Blanton and Jerry Blevins, but Blevins made twice as much as Romo.

In the end, the Dodgers get a player with the possibility of rebounding at a cheap cost. Romo will enter spring training to favorite to pitch the eighth and bridge the gap to the re-signed Kenley Jansen.
