FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Ricky Romero's struggles have been ongoing this spring, as he's posted a 7.27 ERA in four Grapefruit League starts.

"The good ones get it back," said manager John Gibbons of Romero on Sunday morning.

Romero has his manager and teammates' support, but according to Gibbons, "When push comes to shove, it's about results, too.

"You like to take care of everybody, because of what kind of individual they are, but the name of the game is win."

Gibbons' hope for Romero is simple.

"Just want to see some consistency, throw a lot of strikes," Gibbons said. "When he does that he's fine. He's got a good arm, he's getting the ball, he's got good life on his ball. And that's the thing, walks have always been his Achilles heel."

Romero's next outing is set for Tuesday in a 1:05 p.m. ET home game against the Pirates.
