2003 Knee problems in 2001 derailed his career, but Gomes picked up 19 saves with the Phillies in 1999, so he’ll get kicked around for years to come. He’s still as good as he ever was, with all that implies. With Ramiro Mendoza, Mike Timlin, and Chad Fox all signed for 2003, chances are that Gomes is out of the picture, but Fox’s trick elbow could spring at any moment, and Gomes should be only a bus ride away.
2002 Did the Phillies trade damaged goods? Gomes was sent to the Giants for utility man Felipe Crespo, having been scored upon in three of his last four outings. He got knocked around with the Giants, then went on the DL with patellar tendinitis (the injury that ended Mark McGwire's career). No complaints were filed, but that's awfully coincidental. Gomes was non-tendered and is a free agent.
2001 Phillies fans have come to fear "The Look" when Wayne Gomes pitches. He will be sailing through an inning until he throws three consecutive pitches out of the strike zone or gives up a hit. Then he looks like a deer caught in the headlights. His control deteriorates rapidly, and the base-runners start piling up. He has the stuff to be an effective pitcher, but he may need a good sports psychologist to harness it.
2000 After looking like he had suddenly found the strike zone in 1998 and early in 1999, his control deserted him over the last three months and he reverted to the grisly walk rate of his early years. The team’s theory is that the pressure of closing got to him, and that putting him back in a setup role will build up his confidence. Skepticism is a wise idea.
1999 Had a season I didn't think he had in him. Scuffled at the end, possibly a result of his highest-ever relief workload; if he's not hiding an injury and the Phils are willing to be patient, he should steal Brantley's closer job by midsummer.
1998 The 1993 first-round pick, he finally got his walk rate under 5.50 per nine innings. Unfortunately, his strikeout numbers fell below 7 K/9 for the first time ever, so you can’t really say that he was harnessing his fastball. His stint in the majors was about what you’d expect, given his history.
1997 He worked as a starter in ’94-’95, but that was just a ploy to get him more work; he’s been projected as a reliever all along, and averaged less than five innings a game. A first-round pick in 1993, he’s got a great fastball and curveball, but the BB/9 column only tells part of his story—how about an average of 1.5 wild pitches per nine innings over the last three years? How about six balks in one game?
1996  He's the organization's hardest thrower and a first-rounder, so he makes all of the prospect lists. He's also not very good. The Phillies claim to be grooming him for a relief role, but extended pitching has exposed his obvious lack of control. He was sent to the AFL to work on being a closer, and he was a complete disaster (no saves, 58 baserunners in 34 ip).
