As we move toward the 2016 season, let us take a look at each player on the roster and what a reasonably successful season would look like. We started with Aaron Nola. Our most recent entry was Adam Morgan. Name: Jeanmar Gomez
Age:Was 28 in February
Experience: 185 games
What we saw in 2015Jeanmar Gomez proved to be a fairly reliable bullpen arm last year. Pitching in a career-high 65 games, he recorded a 3.01 ERA after allowing just 17 walks and four home runs in 74 innings.
Gomez does get touched a bit by batters, who have averaged 10 hits per 9 innings off him.
Gomez' walk rate - 2.0 - was a lot better than his career mark of 3.1 going into the season. If he can keep that up, the Phillies will have one arm in the pen they can count on.
Important goals for 2016Avoid giving up free passes: Gomez has to limit any damage he does to himself. If batters are going to put the ball in play, they can't benefit from extra runners being on base. It's doubtful he'll repeat his walk rate from last year, but he should be good if he can keep it below 2.7 or 2.8.
Staying healthy: The Phillies have a slapdash bullpen right now. The pieces seemingly moved every week before spring training got its start. None of those players seem like major players right now, so the team needs Gomez to be available.
