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.

Philadelphia Phillies RP David Hernandez picked up his first save of the season, allowing one run on two hits and a walk in a 4-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 14.
Fantasy Tip: Jeanmar Gomez has been excellent as the primary closer, but after he pitched in three of the previous four games, Hernandez received the call. Hernandez isn't worth adding right now, but if Gomez starts to struggle, Hernandez could be the player to stash.

Philadelphia Phillies RP Dalier Hinojosa was in line to close the game Monday, April 4, before RP David Hernandez coughed up the lead in the eighth inning.
Fantasy Tip: Kudos to those who speculated on Hinojosa as he looks to have some breathing room. He makes a decent RP3 and should be plucked from waivers if possible.

Philadelphia Phillies RP David Hernandez didn't retire a single hitter in the eighth inning trying to protect a 2-1 lead against the Cincinnati Reds on opening day Monday, April 4. Hernandez gave up three earned runs on a hit and three walks in his outing.
Fantasy Tip: The Phillies' bullpen is a mess, and manager Pete Mackanin hasn't declared a specific closer. Hernandez was in the running for ninth-inning duties with Dalier Hinojosa, but his outing Monday did nothing to help his cause. If you're speculating for saves, Hinojosa should be your first target, but don't expect much from this situation.

Philadelphia Phillies RPs David Hernandez and Dalier Hinojosa are still candidates for the closer job because manager Pete Mackanin is not ready to make a decision. Mackanin said he wants to be 100% sure about a decision before naming a closer.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez entered spring training as the leading candidate for the closer job but was slowed by an injury. Hinojosa pitched well during the spring and could receive some save opportunities if the team does not name a closer. Both players should be owned in NL-only leagues and could be late-round options in deeper mixed leagues for owners looking for possible saves. Andrew Bailey was not mentioned as a closer option, which will hurt his fantasy value.
