Phillies' Jeanmar Gomez: Remains in driver's seat for closing gig
Manager Pete Mackanin reiterated after Saturday's 13-8 loss to the Pirates that Gomez is his closer "right now," Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Mackanin was asked by reporters if Gomez's status as closer had changed after the righty pitched two innings Saturday. There has been no change, but Gomez will likely be on a short leash after he struggled down the stretch in 2016. He's been solid this spring, having allowed just one run on four hits in 7.2 innings with four strikeouts and a walk.
