The team has yet to verify the report.

But coming to terms with a reliever is not surprising.

Marlins president of operations Michael Hill said at FanFest on Saturday that the team looked to attract another reliever that was experienced before the start of Spring Training.

Workouts for pitchers and catchers start on Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET at the Roger Dean Stadium complex.

Romo fits games, in addition to what the Marlins would like, a recognized reliever who has pitched in high-leverage circumstances.

The Marlins have settled to a closer. Drew Steckenrider and left-hander Adam Conley are anticipated to talk about the role, perhaps founded on match ups. Along with hard-throwing Tayron Guerrero is a setup option.

“I feel a veteran bullpen bit,” Hill said of their team’s staying need on Saturday.

Romo, 35, is an 11-year veteran who broke in with the Giants.

With the Rays last year, Romo emerged in 73 games and made five starts being an”opener” He submitted a 4.14 ERA with 75 strikeouts in 67 1/3 innings, along with 25 saves.
