      Phillies' Hector Neris: Reaches deal for 2021

      Hector Neris signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday to avoid arbitration, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.The team declined the right-hander's $7 million option for next season in late October, but he'll remain in the organization after agreeing to the new deal. Neris had 28 saves with a 2.93 ERA during 2019, but he struggled during the shortened season with a 4.57 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 27:13 K:BB over 21.2 innings.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Option declined but still a Phillie

      Hector Neris' option was declined by the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, though he remains with the team as he's still arbitration eligible, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.The Phillies evidently were uninterested in bringing Neris back for $7 million. Whether they attempt to bring him back at a lower salary or not remains to be seen. Neris has saved 72 games with a 3.38 ERA and a 30.1 percent strikeout rate over parts of seven seasons with the Phillies, though he (along with the rest of the Philadelphia bullpen) struggled last season, posting a 4.57 ERA.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Nabs fifth save

      Hector Neris walked two batters in a scoreless seventh inning to record his fifth save of the season in an 8-7 win over the Blue Jays in the second game of Friday's doubleheader.The right-hander continues to walk a tightrope with his control, but Neris has mostly been able to avoid any serious damage, posting a 1.93 ERA through 9.1 innings in September and converting all three of his save chances this month despite an 11:7 K:BB. He should be the top closing option for the Philadelphia Phillies over the final days of the regular season.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Handed loss Wednesday

      Hector Neris (2-2) allowed one run on two hits and a walk while striking out two in the ninth as he took the loss Wednesday against the Mets.Neris came in to begin the ninth with the score knotted at 4-4 and was unable to withhold the Mets from taking the lead. He was a double play away from getting out of the inning with two men on and one out but surrendered a line-drive single to center field by Andres Gimenez, bringing around Ahmed Rosario to score to eventually win the game for the Mets. Neris has had a down year in comparison to recent seasons with a 4.86 ERA and a career-worst 1.86 WHIP across 16.2 innings.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Notches fourth save

      Hector Neris gave up a hit and a walk while striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his fourth save of the season in a 4-1 win over the Mets.Brandon Workman has been scored upon in each of his last two appearances, while Neris has a 0.90 ERA over his last 10 innings, so the pendulum may be swinging back his way in the Philadelphia Phillies' closer battle. That strong stretch hasn't erased his poor start, however -- on the season, Neris is still saddled with a 4.60 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and career-worst 11.6 percent walk rate.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Nabs save Monday

      Hector Neris allowed one hit and one run (none earned) but recorded the save Monday against the Mets.Brandon Workman pitched in the ninth inning in a tied game, opening up the save opportunity for Neris in the 10th. Neris allowed the runner starting on second base to score on a single, but otherwise held the Mets in check to earn his third save. Workman has emerged as the team's primary closer since being acquired at the trade deadline, but Neris may still see occasional save chances.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Struggles in eighth Saturday

      Hector Neris got credit for his first hold of the season in Saturday's 6-5 loss to Atlanta. He was charged with three runs on two hits and a walk over one-third of an inning.With Brandon Workman now on the roster, Neris entered the game in the eighth inning to protect a 4-2 lead, but he was no more effective in a setup role than he'd been as closer, coughing up a run on two hits and a walk before he managed to record his only out. Workman then came into the game and allowed both inherited runners to score when Matt Adams laced his first pitch for a double. Neris now has a ghastly 11.12 ERA, 2.65 WHIP and 7:5 K:BB through 5.2 innings and has blown three of his five save chances to begin the season, but Workman's disastrous first outing as a Phillie doesn't guarantee that he'll immediately displace the team's incumbent in the closer role. It wouldn't be surprising if the duo split save opportunities until one of them proves to manager Joe Girardi that they can be reliable in the ninth.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Burned by defense

      Hector Neris allowed three runs (none earned) on one hit and one walk while striking out one across one-third of an inning to blow the save and take the loss in the second game of the Philadelphia Phillies' doubleheader Thursday against the Blue Jays.Neris entered the game in the sixth inning of a seven-inning contest, after the Phillies' lead was trimmed to one. Subsequently, two batters reached base on errors, which then crossed the plate on a wild pitch and a single. Though Neris was a bit wild, he was let down by his defense for the second time in his past four appearances. He'll still need to improve some things that are within his control -- he has a 6.8 BB/9 -- but he should remain the Phillies' primary closing option for now.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Melts down against Orioles

      Hector Neris allowed three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two to blow the save Tuesday against the Orioles.Neris entered the game in the ninth inning with a 6-5 lead. He managed to retire one of the first two batters he faced, but then went on to allow two singles, a double and a walk while allowing three earned runs. Entering Tuesday's contest, Neris had not allowed a run in three appearances. Given that form and the struggles of Philadelphia's bullpen overall, Neris is likely to continue to see save chances moving forward despite this poor performance.

      Phillies' Hector Neris: Notches second save

      Hector Neris was credited with the save in Thursday's win over the Yankees, pitching 1.1 scoreless innings and giving up two hits while striking out one.Neris had pitched in only one game this season before Wednesday, but he was able to close out a pair of wins in the series against the Yankees to register his first two saves of the campaign. In Thursday's contest, he was brought in to face Aaron Judge with a runner on third base in the eighth inning and proceeded to strike the slugger out to preserve Philadelphia's lead. Though the Yankees managed a pair of two-out singles against Neris in the ninth, the closer induced a flyout to end the contest and clinch a series victory. After converting 28 of 34 save opportunities in 2019 and both of his chances so far this season, Neris ranks among the most stable closers in the league.
