Got the save last night, bailing out Dyson in the eighth and pitching a clean ninth.

Nice going Sergie!

Why do I call him that?

Can you ask?

Minnesota Twins — Sergio Romo has been traded to Minnesota and could compete for saves, but we think Taylor Rogers — eight years younger and with better numbers — will keep the ninth inning. We’ll throw the committee asterisk on for now as a hedge.

Updated hierarchy: *Rogers | Romo | May.
* = closer-by-committee

Miami Marlins — Pitching for the first time in six days, Sergio Romo had to be removed from Thursday’s game with a knee bruise after colliding with Trea Turner. He limped off the field and was in obvious pain, but the Marlins think he’ll be fine. Still, this situation is worth monitoring.

Hierarchy remains: Romo | Guerrero | Anderson.

Jose Quijada with his first save today. Good strikeout rates and a handful of saves at Triple-A. Can we get him called up from the depths, Alex?

His only blown Save had 2 errors and another play not made by a player out of position in the equation.

Lousy numbers (4.26 ERA, 4.7 BB/9) ... even worse underlying stats (5.50 xFIP) ... but someone's going to close the occasional Marlins win, and Romo has saved 60% of them, with only 1 blown save.

Might be the needle in the haystack among closers for lousy teams.  
- Cheap enough ($2.5 mil for 2019, FA next winter) that there's no real incentive to move him
- Just good/lucky enough to hold the job 
- no pressing competition (Guerrero will close someday, perhaps not this year.  Anderson has turned into a pumpkin already.  Brice has all of 19 innings as a good pitcher.  Steckenrider's hurt, and Conley has flopped.)
- bad enough that nobody's going to offer much for him, so he could be a Marlin all year
