Romo could earn an additional $1 million in bonuses for games finished, a source tells ESPN.

His pending deal with the reigning World Series champions was reported earlier Wednesday by Fox Sports.

Romo is 31-21 with a 2.58 ERA over seven seasons with the Giants. He recorded 38 saves in 2013 and saved 23 games last season. After Romo blew three saves in five opportunities in late June, Santiago Casilla replaced him in the closer role.

The New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly had expressed interest in Romo as a free agent this offseason.

Romo pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings in the World Series for the Giants and is 3-1 with a 2.11 ERA and four saves in 25 career postseason appearances, helping San Francisco win three World Series championships.
