RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Gomes has spent most of the past few seasons on the Tampa-to-Durham shuttle as one of the few pitchers on the roster with options. Last season, he faced 138 batters and struck out just 17.4% of them -- a very low rate for any reliever. That is one of the reasons he is best used as a ROOGY because his delivery and arm angle are very tough on righties while lefties tee off on him. Hes now out of options so he has to make the team or be exposed to waivers and pitchers with his skills are a dime a dozen on the free-agent market.

2014

Gomes was struggling a bit out of the bullpen for the Rays when he strained a lat muscle that wound up keeping him out of action for almost four months of the season. He showed some improvement on his fastball velocity in 2013, and his K/9 rate with the Rays was an impressive 13.5. His flyball rate jumped to 64.4 percent, but he only threw in 26 games on the year. He is a few seasons removed from having consistency in the bullpen for the Rays, but should have a solid chance of breaking out of spring training in the bullpen.

2013

After a strong 2011 in the Rays bullpen, Gomes struggled and bounced between the majors and Triple-A Durham in 2012. In the minors, Gomes performed well totaling a 3.09 ERA and 11.9 K/9. During his time with Tampa Bay, he seemed to lose his cool with a 5.25 FIP suggesting his 5.09 ERA was generous. He finished the year in the Rays' bullpen, but given the strong year the unit had as a whole, Gomes will have to earn his spot for 2013.

2012

Gomes was acquired by the Rays in the Jason Bartlett deal and spent most of the season with the Rays after dominating at Triple-A Durham to start the season. In the minors he struck out 40 batters in only 25.1 innings, leading to a 1.07 ERA. He proved to be effective with the Rays, striking out just under a batter per inning and finishing with a 2.92 ERA. Gomes has a fastball in the low-90s and also throws a slider to keep hitters guessing. One area he'll need to improve is his ability to get out left-handed hitters after he had a 5.17 ERA vs. lefties while only a 1.54 ERA vs. righties. Barring a complete meltdown in the spring he should claim one of the bullpen spots as a middle reliever.
