GOMEZ TO THE TEXAS RANGERS
Yet another team rumored to be scouting Gomez, the Rangers have righty Sam Dyson in the closer role at present, and he has functioned well in that role. Shawn Tolleson is also still around, though he faltered at times when closing earlier in the years.
But Gomez would appear to be a nice fit here. He could slip back to his key 7th-8th inning role if the Rangers think that Bush is matured enough to take on the primary setup role. Or Gomez could setup himself, ready to step in for Dyson when needed.
Would the Phillies have interest in overlooking the past PED suspension of Travis Demeritte to make a deal? Would the Rangers, who have other internal options, be willing to deal his offensive upside? Could be a good fit, a nice roll of the dice for Klentak, and a reasonable price for Texas.
