Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Sergio Romo is switching state allegiances for the 2017 MLB season.
Romo, 33, has a one-year deal with the team, pending a physical.
"Now, things seem to be really changing for me," Romo told MLB.com. "It seems a change of scenery might be on its way for me, but at the end of it all, I'm still keeping the faith. There are still teams that still think I can play in the league and still have the confidence in me that I have in myself that I can still play and contribute in the league."
Romo is currently playing for the Mexican team in the Caribbean Series. That could delay the deal, according to Jon Heyman.
"Romo twist: Dodgers appear likely, but 2nd team is still bidding," Heyman reported. "Sergio headed to Caribbean series so answer may wait."
He is likely to replace free agent Joe Blanton. The 2013 All-Star had a 2.64 ERA and four saves in 40 games last season for the Giants. He has a career 2.58 ERA and 84 saves in nine seasons.
