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.

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.

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.

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez pitched a perfect ninth inning to log his first save in a 1-0 win over the New York Mets Saturday, April 9.
Fantasy Tip: Gomez currently atop the pecking order for saves in Philadelphia's messy bullpen, and while his role is far from secure, he is worth grabbing if you are hunting for saves.

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeanmar Gomez is next in line for a save chance as the team's closer, according to manager Pete Mackanin.
Fantasy Tip: The Phillies bullpen is a mess. David Hernandez and Dalier Hinojosa both failed in their first chances this year to impress and gain Mackanin's trust in late-inning roles, so Gomez is next up. Pursue Gomez immediately off the waiver wire if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel for save chances.

Pittsburgh Pirates P Stolmy Pimentel is out of options, so the team will look hard at him during the spring. Manager Clint Hurdle suggested Sunday, Feb. 16, that Pimentel might be used in a role similar to SP Jeanmar Gomez last season, working in long relief and making spot starts. "We still envision him as a starter," Hurdle said, when asked of Pimentel's long-term outlook. "He will have every opportunity to break (camp) with the big club."
