Jeanmar Gomez gave up a run but hung on to collect his 15th save of the season on Tuesday against the Marlins.

Entering to protect a three-run lead, Gomez gave up two hits and walked a batter while surrendering a run, but he eventually retired the opposition. Not surprisingly, the 28-year-old journeyman has begun to show some cracks of late with a 5.40 ERA over his last seven appearances. However, he's 15-for-16 in save opportunities.

Jeanmar Gomez pitched a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Reds for his 14th save of the season.

Asked to hold a one-run lead, Gomez hit Joey Votto with one out, but he managed to get Brandon Phillips to hit into a double play to end the ballgame. After going undrafted in nearly all fantasy leagues, Gomez owns a 2.49 ERA over 20 appearances and leads the majors with 14 saves. Nobody else has more than 12 saves. Baseball, man.

Jeanmar Gomez converted his league-leading 12th save Tuesday against the Braves.

It wasn't without a bit of a sweat, as Gomez yielded a solo homer to Freddie Freeman to lead off the ninth before eventually stranding the tying run at first base. The 28-year-old has been scored upon in two of his last four appearances but has managed to nail down 12 of his 13 save opportunities on the year.

Jeanmar Gomez secured the Phillies' 4-3 win over the Marlins on Saturday, picking up his 10th save in the process.

Gomez surrendered a one-out single to J.T. Realmuto in the ninth inning, but erased that in short order by inducing a double play grounder from Miguel Rojas. The 28-year-old right-hander is 10-for-11 in save chances this season and holds a 2.55 ERA with a 13/5 K/BB ratio over 17 2/3 innings. He makes for a respectable closing option in any relatively deep mixed league, though interested parties should be aware that he is not guaranteed to hold the closer's gig all season and that either Hector Neris or Andrew Bailey could push for the ninth down the road.
May 7 - 10:58 PM

Jeanmar Gomez took his first blown save and loss after giving up two runs in the ninth Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Gomez retired just one of the six hitters he faced, with one of his two outs coming on a baserunning miscue from pinch-runner Carlos Martinez. Gomez has done excellent work as the Phillies' closer, but the team would be better off if Hector Neris or Andrew Bailey could secure the job, allowing Gomez to return to his old stomping grounds in the middle innings. It might happen before too long.

Jeanmar Gomez pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Cardinals to earn his ninth save Tuesday.

All saves are not created equal, and Gomez earned his Tuesday by protecting a one-run lead against the top of the Cardinals' lineup. He got Matt Carpenter to strike out swinging before pitching around a Stephen Piscotty one-out single. Gomez now owns a 1.69 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 12/3 K/BB ratio over 16 innings of work overall.
May 3 - 10:55 PM

Jeanmar Gomez worked into and out of trouble Saturday against the Indians, earning his eighth save of the season.

One-out singles by Jose Ramirez and Lonnie Chisenhall created some stress for Gomez, but he got Rajai Davis to ground out and Jason Kipnis to line out to end the game. The Phillies have been one of the biggest surprises of the season's first month and Gomez has been one of the biggest surprises on the Phils, earning eight saves with a 1.80 ERA and 1.00 WHIP after beginning the season as a middle reliever.
Apr 30 - 10:25 PM

Jeanmar Gomez tossed a scoreless ninth inning Thursday for his seventh save of the season.

Only David Robertson and Kenley Jansen have more saves than Gomez. You know, just like everyone predicted coming into the year. Gomez doesn’t fit the mold of a typical closer, but he hasn’t had any hiccups yet while posting a 1.93 ERA and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 14 innings.
Apr 28 - 9:26 PM

Jeanmar Gomez breezed through a perfect ninth inning in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Nationals to pick up his sixth save.

Gomez had only one career save prior to 2016 and has never posted a full-season ERA under 3.00 in the big leagues; however, he's enjoyed a dream start to the season. He lowered his ERA to 2.08 on Wednesday and now has six saves, which ranks as the seventh-most in the majors. The sustainability of this performance is unclear -- given his history and the fact that he's not really doing anything different -- but he's the clear closer in Philadelphia right now and should be owned in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.
Apr 27 - 10:47 PM

Jeanmar Gomez converted his fifth save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Gomez made Philly fans a little nervous when a two-out Anthony Rendon single brought up Bryce Harper as the go-ahead run, but he got Harper to ground out to end it. The veteran right-hander isn't a great bet to continue producing as the Phillies' closer, but he's been good so far with a 2.25 ERA and five saves in five chances.
Apr 26 - 11:32 PM

Jeanmar Gomez grabbed his fourth save of the season in a 2-1 victory over the Padres, despite giving up a run in the ninth.

Gomez walked Derek Norris with two outs and then allowed him to score on a Brett Wallace single, but the right-hander got Alexei Ramirez to pop out to end the game. He's clearly the Phillies' closer at this point with four saves in a week. A below-average strikeout rate should limit his upside as a fantasy closer; however, he's safe to rely upon everyday for saves at this point.
Apr 13 - 10:24 PM

Jeanmar Gomez notched his third save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Gomez allowed Melvin Upton to reach on an infield single to lead off the frame, but he then quickly induced three straight groundouts to preserve the three-run lead. Phillies manager Pete Mackanin hasn't officially named Gomez his closer yet, but he's clearly the guy at this point with three saves over the last four days.
Apr 12 - 10:34 PM

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin stopped short of naming Jeanmar Gomez his closer on Sunday.

Gomez accomplished what David Hernandez and Dalier Hinojosa were unable to, earning saves on back-to-back days over the weekend. The right-hander has yielded just one hit in three innings this season. "Fireman of the year," Mackanin said with a smile after Gomez closed out Sunday's win against the Mets. "I don’t want to jump to conclusions here. Let’s keep playing it out until we see what happens."
Apr 11 - 8:59 AM

Jeanmar Gomez pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save against the Mets on Saturday.

Gomez put down the Mets in order to earn the save, his first of the season and just the second of his career. The closer role in Philadelphia has been a revolving door this season, with manager Pete Mackanin cycling through relievers in hopes one will stick. Gomez' success Saturday surely means he'll get the next call as well, so owners chasing saves, take note. Just don't expect much.
