FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: PHILS LOOKING TO SELL HIGH ON JEANMAR GOMEZ

The Philadelphia Phillies are offering up closer Jeanmar Gomez in an effort to sell high on him prior to or at the Aug. 1 trade deadline.  Gomez has been excellent in his first season as a closer for the Phils in 2016 but they have a ready made replacment in the hard-throwing Hector Neris.  The Washington Nationals, Cleveland Indians, and San Francisco Giants are all scouting Gomez. 

Analysis:  This would be the right call for the Phils as Gomez could be exposed at any time as a guy who doesn't rack up the high amount of K's you expect out of the ninth inning.  David Hernandez also figures to be on the block with starter Jeremy Hellickson as well.  Pick up Neris as a hedge as he can be quite good in the ninth inning.
