The San Francisco Giants are scouring the reliever market and have had a top scout watching Philadelphia Phillies RPs Jeanmar Gomez and David Hernandez.
Fantasy Tip: While not a dominant closer by any stretch, Santiago Casilla isn't in any danger of losing his ninth-inning job, so Gomez and Hernandez would just bolster the back end. Gomez is a low-end fantasy closer without many strikeouts, and he'd lose most of his value in a setup role with the Giants.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are watching Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez as they look for a bullpen upgrade.
Fantasy Tip: Gomez is more of a low-end fantasy closing option because of his lack of strikeouts (5.7 K/9) and the fact he pitches for a rebuilding club. But he's been decent with a 2.76 ERA and 26 saves this year. Moving to Pittsburgh would kill almost all of his value, though, as a setup man to Mark Melancon. It's anyone's guess, but Hector Neris would likely be first in line for saves in Philly if Gomez is dealt.

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.
Fantasy Tip: Gomez has had a couple of rocky outings recently, but he has blown just two saves and should still have a long leash as the closer.

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.

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.

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.
