Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez blew the save and took the loss against the Washington Nationals Sunday, June 12, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk.

Phillies | Jeanmar Gomez logs 19th save

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:09:17 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez worked two scoreless innings against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, June 7 to earn his 19th save of the season. He allowed two hits and struck out one.

Fantasy Tip: It was the fourth time this season that Gomez pitched more than an inning, but it was the first time it resulted in a save. His 19 saves are tied for the major-league lead with Pittsburgh's Mark Melancon, and with Philly's tendency to play low-scoring games he should continue to see plenty of opportunities.

Phillies | Jeanmar Gomez knocked around

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 20:14:33 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez allowed two runs on two hits while walking one and striking out two in a non-save situation Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez has been reliable as Philadelphia's closer, but he hasn't had many chances recently. Keep starting him, but long gaps between saves will happen when your closer plays for a bad team.

Phillies | Jeanmar Gomez collects 16th save

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:52:08 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez pitched a perfect ninth inning Wednesday, May 18, versus the Miami Marlins, en route to picking up his 16th save of the season. He also recorded one strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez isn't your typical overpowering closer, but he continues to get the job done, as he's converted on all but one of his save opportunities this year. In the process, he shockingly leads all of baseball in saves. Considering Philadelphia plays a lot of tight ballgames, the former Cleveland Indian could keep it going and sustain his position amongst the league leaders at season's end.

Phillies | Jeanmar Gomez earns save

Tue, 17 May 2016 22:28:43 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez allowed one run on two hits in one inning against the Miami Marlins Tuesday, May 17, but was still able to pick up his 15th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez did not start the season as the closer but now leads MLB in saves. He has allowed four runs in his last seven appearances but is a great starting option as long as he keeps his closer job.

Phillies | Another save for Jeanmar Gomez

Sun, 08 May 2016 15:10:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez picked up his 11th save of the year Sunday, May 8, in a 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Not bad for a pitcher who hadn't had much success in relief prior to this season. The main question is how long can Gomez keep up the quality. The temptation might be to sell high, and no one would blame you if you did. Keep Gomez in mind, although he may have more value in daily leagues at this point.

Phillies | Jeanmar Gomez blows first save

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:06:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez blew his first save in 10 attempts Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: He allowed two runs in two-thirds of an inning to add a run to his ERA, which stands at 2.70. Gomez has virtually no track record, and it might be wise to sell high.

Phillies | Jeanmar Gomez records eighth save

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:27:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez picked up his eighth save Saturday, April 30, in a 4-3 win over the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez has turned into a pretty decent closer as the Phillies are off to a better-than-expected 14-10 start. Still, the question remains. How long can he keep this job? You may want to draft Andrew Bailey onto your roster as insurance just in case Gomez slides. For now, Philadelphia's decent play makes Gomez a good fantasy option.

Nationals | Bryce Harper leaves yard yet again

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 14:48:24 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper homered for the fourth time in as many games on Sunday, April 17, sending a pitch from Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez over the fence in right in the top of the 10th inning.

Fantasy Tip: Philadelphia scored two in the bottom of the frame against Jonathan Papelbon, stealing Harper's thunder and giving Gomez the win. Harper is making baseball fun again for his owners with 10 RBI over his last four games, and finds himself one home run behind Trevor Story (seven) and one RBI behind Nolan Arenado (16) for the league lead in both categories. He's arguably the best player in fantasy baseball right now.

Phillies | Jeanmar Gomez not given title yet

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 06:11:37 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez recorded his second save Sunday, April 10, but manager Pete Mackanin stopped short of naming him the closer. "I don't want to jump to conclusions here," Mackanin said. "Let's keep playing it out until we see what happens."

Fantasy Tip: Gomez doesn't have the title, but he's the closer for the short term. If you have a surplus, look to see if you can sell high on him.
