  • Astros' Hector Neris: Hit with loss Monday

    Neris (1-2) took the loss Monday as the Astros fell 6-3 to the Red Sox, giving up three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in one inning of relief.

    The right-hander entered a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the eighth inning and got rocked for three extra-base hits, capped by a two-run homer off the bat of Xander Bogaerts. Neris saw his 10-appearance scoreless streak snapped, but on the season he still sports a strong 2.12 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 16:2 K:BB through 17 innings with a win and five holds.

  • Astros' Hector Neris: Works eighth inning

    Neris did not allow a baserunner and pitched a scoreless eighth inning Wednesday against the Rangers.

    Neris entered the game with a one-run lead and retired Corey Seager, Nathaniel Lowe and Mitch Garver on only 12 pitches. Ryne Stanek came on to earn the save in the ninth inning. The closer situation remains ambiguous in Houston, as this was the team's first converted save since Ryan Pressly (knee) was placed on the injured list. However, if Wednesday's usage carries forward, it appears that manager Dusty Baker may prefer to use Neris in high-leverage spots and not necessarily save situations, which would limit his fantasy upside even with Pressly out.

  • Astros' Hector Neris: Takes loss against Jays

    Neris (1-1) allowed one earned run on two hits across one inning to take the loss Friday against Toronto.

    Neris entered the game with the score tied in the ninth inning, a situation traditionally handled by the closer. He allowed a leadoff single to Vladimir Guerrero and then a two-out double to Matt Chapman to account for the game-winning run. Though he was tagged with the loss, it was the first run Neris has allowed this season across 6.1 frames. While Ryan Pressly (knee) remains sidelined, Neris appears to be in the best position to pick up save chances.

  • Astros' Hector Neris: Granted first win

    Neris (1-0) picked up the win in Tuesday's 2-1 victory against the Diamondbacks, striking out two in a perfect eighth inning.

    Neris made quick work of the heart of Arizona's order in the eighth and fell in line for the victory when Houston took the lead in the top of the ninth. The first-year Astro has yet to allow a run through three appearances and is solidifying his hold on the setup role.

  • Astros' Hector Neris: Heads to Houston

    Neris signed a two-year, $17 million deal with the Astros on Saturday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Neris was perhaps miscast as a closer during his eight years in Philadelphia, and he probably won't add significantly to his 84 career saves with his new team unless Ryan Pressly gets injured. That said, he has a lot to offer as a setup man and doesn't appear to be slowing down as he heads into his age-33 season. He finished 2021 with a 3.63 ERA in 74.1 innings, with a strong 31.6 percent strikeout rate and above-average 47.1 percent groundball rate offsetting a 10.3 percent walk rate.

  • Phillies' Hector Neris: Picks up win Friday

    Neris (4-6) allowed a hit and three walks while striking out three in 1.2 innings Friday, earning the win versus Pittsburgh.

    It was far from a pretty performance, but Neris was able to settle things down after Cam Bedrosian allowed Pittsburgh to briefly take the lead in the seventh inning. Through 13.1 innings in September, Neris has given up four runs on nine hits and three walks with 18 strikeouts. The right-hander has a 3.33 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 91:28 K:BB across 70.1 innings overall while adding 12 saves and 11 holds in a high-leverage role.

  • Phillies' Hector Neris: Charged with loss Sunday

    Neris (2-6) took the loss Sunday versus Colorado. He allowed two runs on two hits in one inning.

    The right-hander allowed a single to Elias Diaz and a home run to Garrett Hampson in the seventh inning, and Philadelphia wasn't able to recover from it. Neris saw his 10.1-inning scoreless streak come to a close -- during that span, he allowed five hits and four walks while striking out 17. He's pitched to a 3.45 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 82:25 K:BB in 62.2 innings this year. Neris remains in a setup role behind Ian Kennedy after the former lost the closer job in June.

  • Phillies' Hector Neris: Earns win despite command woes

    Neris (2-5) earned the win Friday against the Padres after tossing 1.2 scoreless innings, walking three and striking out one. He also tossed a wild pitch.

    Neris needed 31 pitches to record the four outs that resulted in his second win of the season, but only 14 of those deliveries found the strike zone and he showed major command issues. The veteran reliever ended a streak of six straight appearances without issuing a free pass, but he has been pitching well in recent weeks. He has given up just one earned run over his last 14.2 innings of work, a span that covers 12 appearances.

  • Phillies' Hector Neris: Earns save in series finale

    Neris struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn the save against the Marlins on Sunday.

    Ranger Suarez has been used in save situations recently, but he had pitched on each of the last two days and was charged with a blown save Saturday. As a result, Neris was brought on in the ninth inning Sunday to preserve the Phillies' three-run lead, and he picked up his 12th save of the year. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander could be the favorite for closing duties going forward, but it was encouraging to see him earn his first save since June 25 in Sunday's series finale.
