News: Gomez and the Phillies agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million contract Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.
Impact: Gomez has moved completely into a relief role over the past two years and has been serviceable, with a 3.10 ERA. However, he has just 88 strikeouts in 136.2 innings (5.8 K/9) in that span and is unlikely to provide more than solid, multi-inning middle relief.
