Philadelphia Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said he was "concerned" about RHP Jeanmar Gomez after his shaky performance in the ninth inning Monday, April 3, against the Cincinnati Reds. Gomez served up a two-run homer and almost blew the save, with Mackanin commenting that he had two guys warming up in the inning. "He's just not getting the ball down the way he did when he was successful," Mackanin said. "I want to make sure that he gets opportunities, but at the same time, I don't want to let games slip away."

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.
