Romo eyes 1 more BP session before game action

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Giants right-hander Sergio Romo said that his throwing arm felt fine Wednesday, one day after he threw to hitters for the first time this spring in live batting practice.

Romo, who's recovering from shoulder discomfort, said that his next step likely will be another live BP session on Thursday or Friday. San Francisco's top setup reliever hasn't appeared in a Cactus League game, but he anticipates being ready for the Giants' regular-season opener April 6 at Arizona.

"I feel fine," Romo said. "There's nothing to worry about."

Romo, 32, ranks sixth in San Francisco Giants-era history (since 1958) with 405 appearances. He pitched at least 64 games in each of the previous five seasons.
