28-year old righty reliever Jeanmar Gomez was doing really good work for the first five months of the 2016 for the Philadelphia Phillies as their closer. But, he has imploded in September and it likely means that he won’t enter the 2017 season as their closer. He has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Phillies in September so far and he is 0-2 with 3 saves, a 16.20 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP. He has given up 17 hits (2 homers) and 3 walks while whiffing 8 batters in his first 6 2/3 innings this month. Gomez has now pitched in 68 games (0 starts) for the Phillies overall this year and he is 3-4 with 37 saves, a 4.28 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He has given up 74 hits and 20 walks while whiffing 46 batters in his first 67 1/3 innings for the Phillies this year. Gomez has now pitched in 133 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 5-7 with 37 saves, a 3.61 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.
