While he ultimately signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees made strong pushes to sign Sergio Romo this offseason.

Romo was the primary closer for the San Francisco Giants in 2013 and 2014, recording a combined 61 saves over that span.

The three-time World Series champion excelled in a setup role in 2015 and 2016, compiling a 2.64 ERA last season.
