Report – Phillies Sign Jeanmar Gomez, Avoid Arbitration
We told you about Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis avoiding arbitration, signing a 1-year contract.
Now the Phillies have avoided arbitration with another young player on their roster.
According to a report, the Phillies have avoided arbitration with relief pitcher Jeanmar Gomez. The club has inked him to a one year, $1.4 million contract.
Gomez, 27, has shifted into a relief pitcher role with the Phillies after signing as a free agent with the club last offseason.
In 2015, he finished with a 3.01 ERA in 65 games.
He also finished with 50 strikeouts and 17 walks in 74.2 innings pitched.
With both Galvis and Gomez locked up, Jeremy Helickson remains the only player that is needed to be signed in order to avoid an arbitration process.
