Suddenly one of the longest tenured players on the team, Seranthony Dominguez was first recalled by Gabe Kapler's Phillies on May 7, 2018 when Adam Morgan landed on the disabled list with a back strain.  Dominguez has served at times as the team's closer ever since, although he's still trying to recapture the success he found in 2018 when he saved 16 games.  He missed all of 2020 and all but one game in 2021 while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

As noted in the team's Media Guide, Dominguez began the postseason with 18 strikeouts and no walks, which is the longest walkless streak by any pitcher at the start of his postseason career.  He converted a crucial two-inning save in Game 3 of the NLCS against the Padres, and was the winning pitcher in World Series Game 1 following the Phillies come from behind 6-5 win over the Astros.
