RotoWire News: Manager Pete Mackanin reiterated after Saturday's 13-8 loss to the Pirates that Gomez is his closer "right now," Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports. (3/19/2017)

Profile: If someone had asked you to "list off the relievers in MLB likely to crack 30 saves in 2016," Gomez would have been way, way, way down the list. But here we are, 37 saves later. The Phillies reliever snagged hold of a tenuous bullpen hierarchy early in the year and (for the most part) didn't look back. Of course, much of his early success was predicated on some luck, as his first half ERA (2.59) didn't match the FIP (3.63). He seemed to regress as the year went on, with those same ERA/FIP marks reading 8.33/4.48 following the all-star break, in large part due to his walk rate backing up to closer to 10% than 5%. While Gomez was indeed solid at times last year, he lacks the swing-and-miss stuff that helps tamp down BABIP luck in the 9th inning and the peripherals over the last three years paint the picture of a guy better suited for middle relief. He'll likely get a chance to reclaim the closer gig during spring training in 2017, but guys like Hector Neris and Joaquin Benoit represent better options if you absolutely had to take an upside flier in the Philadelphia pen.(Colin Zarzycki)

The Quick Opinion: Gomez surprised practically everybody with 37 saves in 2016, although his start-of-season was far better than his end-of-season. As a reliever who is stingy with free passes but lacks true whiff-inducing stuff, Gomez seems better suited for middle relief and is likely destined to be a low-upside RP option even if he regains the Phillies' closer gig out of spring training.
