Giants going to closer-by-committee approach


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced Sunday he's removing Sergio Romo from the full-time closer's role for the time being. Bochy said he will go to a closer-by-committe approach, which will consist of Jeremy Affeldt, Santiago Casilla and Romo, who will also work in a setup role.

"I think it's time we tweak it a little bit," Bochy said, per MLB.com. "He [Romo] has done a great job. It's fair to say he's having his struggles. We think we can help him late in the ballgame. He'll still be part of the mix, so we're going to back him off a little bit and do it by committee."

Bochy is hoping this move will get Romo back on track.

"He's done that (setup role) before, he's done a great job at it and I think he'll do a great job wherever we use him," Bochy said. "He's fine with it right now. How long this committee thing goes, I can't tell you, but hopefully it gets him going."
