JUPITER Deion Sanders Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Veteran reliever Sergio Romo believes Miami’s rebuilt roster can become his fountain of youth.“I think the youth here gives me energy, gives me confidence that I can still play because I’m with them every day,” Romo said. “Yesterday we were running and, yeah, they beat me, but they didn’t beat me by much.”Miami bucked the trend of clubs filling bullpens with fireballing relievers by signing the 35-year-old right-hander and his 85-mph fastball to a one-year, $2.5 million contract on Friday. Romo employs an array of curves and sliders to set up a fastball that arrives at the plate at the same speed as many major leaguers’ change-ups.“It’s 85, but it’s coming hot,” said Romo Alen Hanson Jersey , who will become the second-oldest Marlin should 37-year-old Curtis Granderson make the club out of spring training.Romo saved 84 games for San Francisco from 2008 to 2016, winning three World Series rings. After a year with the Dodgers, he spent the past two seasons with Tampa Bay, recording 25 saves for the Rays last season.The Marlins, Braves and Mets were among the teams that scouted Romo during the offseason in the Mexican winter league.“This is one of the teams where I said, ‘Man, I kind of fit there,'” Romo said of the Marlins. “If they gave me a shot I think I can do some pretty cool things there.”Brad Ziegler and Kyle Barraclough led Miami with 10 saves apiece last season. The Marlins traded the now-retired Ziegler to Arizona near last year’s trading deadline, and traded Barraclough to Washington in October.Romo joins righty Drew Steckenrider (five saves in 2018) and lefty Ed Conley (three saves last season) as options to close games for Miami.“I don’t think we have that one guy Edgar Martinez Jersey ,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “We don’t have the Kenley Jansen, the guy that would profile as the guy, so I think we have to put these guys in the best situation to get three outs.”Mattingly would prefer not to jump on the trend of using a reliever as an “opener” for games, electing instead to continue the development of the Marlins’ young staff, though Romo said he discussed that topic with the club before he signed.Romo, who started five games last season for the Rays, called the prospect or reprising his opener role “intriguing.”“When it comes to the whole staring bit, I don’t know if I can throw five innings every fifth day — at the minimum five innings every fifth day,” Romo said. “I do know as an opener I can throw you five innings in five days — that type of stuff.” FORT MYERS Ryon Healy Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Mookie Betts won a World Series in October, became a first-time dad nine days later, earned his first AL MVP award and was part of a team that won a professional bowling event.What can the 26-year-old do for an encore with the Boston Red Sox?“He can do whatever he wants in sports,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “He can golf. He can shoot the basketball and he won a tournament in bowling. He can do it all. He’s just gifted.”“Yeah, it’s been fun. It’s been a great year,” Betts said Thursday. “It’s a new year now, so you have to look at in hindsight and smile about, know what’s going on now and take care of things and view things that way.”He hit a major league-leading .346 with 32 homers and 80 RBIs last year. Betts likely will be dropped a slot to second in the batting order behind Andrew Benintendi.Betts was a part of a Red Sox team that won a club-record 108 games and Boston’s fourth World Series title in 15 season. During the offseason, girlfriend Brianna Hammonds gave birth to the couple’s first child http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey , a daughter they named Kynlee Ivory. He won the AL MVP, his third Gold Glove and teamed this month with pro bowler Tommy Jones, winning the PBA Celebrity Invitational.After finishing second to Mike Trout in the 2016 AL MVP vote, Betts put pressure on himself the following season and hit a career-worst .264 with 24 homers and 102 RBIs.“Having the struggles, I kind of know what to expect, what not to do,” he said. “Hopefully, I’m going to use that to my advantage and have another good year. I think just going out and playing, continuing to work hard. I think I’m a different player now than I was then. Fortunately http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey , I was able to have a great year.”CAMP MYSTERYLeft-hander David Price changed his number from 24 to 10 and didn’t explain why.“I’m going to let you guys figure it out. It’s not that tough,” he told reporters. “If you know me at all, I think you can get it.”It led to number of guesses that the pitcher rejected.MVP ARRIVESWorld Series MVP Steve Pearce arrived and joined Dustin Pedroia, Mitch Moreland and Brock Holt during batting practice in a cage on a back field. A small speaker on the grass played country music from an iPhone.“It was a fun offseason,” Pearce said. “I think a little bit’s changed, but I would say for the most part I had a fun offseason.”Notes: Cora said 2B Pedroia “looks good.” The infielder took some grounders before hitting in the cage. He’s attempting to return after a left knee injury cost him all but three games last season. .. Price joked that he thought RHP Ryan Brasier was left-handed the first time he was running in from the bullpen last year.
