The Giants have reached agreement with reliever Sergio Romo on a two-year, $15 million contract, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Romo drew interest from many clubs this offseason, but will return to San Francisco after spending the first seven years of his career with the Giants.

Romo, who turns 32 in March, struggled a bit last season, losing his closer role en route to a 3.72 ERA in 58 innings of work over 64 appearances. He has been a reliable bullpen piece for San Francisco since 2008, and tallied 78 saves from 2012 to 2014 while being named to the NL All-Star team in 2013.

For his career, Romo owns a 31-21 record, with a 2.51 ERA and 78 saves in 405 games. He drew interest from teams like the Blue Jays and Tigers this winter, but will be a member of the Giants' bullpen for the next two years, at minimum.

Romo will re-join a strong bullpen corps for the Giants, reuniting with the likes of Jeremy Affeldt, George Kontos, Jean Machi, Javier Lopez, and new closer Santiago Casilla.
