Phillies' Hector Neris: Lands on COVID-19 injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Phillies initially didn't reveal the reason why Neris and three other players were placed on the injured list, but it's since been revealed that they're all on the COVID-19 injured list, rather than the regular 10-day injured list. That doesn't necessarily mean that any of them have caught the virus, however, as players can also be placed on the list simply for having had contact with someone who has since tested positive. With players' medical information being closely safeguarded in this area, it's not clear when Neris is expected to rejoin the team.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Shifts to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies placed Neris on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to an unspecified issue, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Neris was one of four Phillies placed on the IL on Wednesday, with no reason provided behind any of the transactions. More clarity on Neris' situation could be provided the next time manager Joe Girardi meets with the media, but for now, the 31-year-old's status for Opening Day in late July is muddled. Neris had been projected to serve as the Phillies' closer in 2020 after converting 28 of 34 save chances and posting a 2.93 ERA and 1.02 WHIP last season, but if he's forced to miss any time, Girardi could opt to take a committee approach to the ninth inning.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Unblemished spring ERA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris threw four scoreless Grapefruit League innings before play was suspended.

Neris' spring tune-up wasn't perfect, however, as he struck out just one of the 16 batters he faced. The 30-year-old doesn't appear to have any serious threats to his closer role this season, with David Robertson set to miss most or all of the campaign due to Tommy John surgery and Seranthony Dominguez's elbow problems returning.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Settles arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris and the Phillies settled their arbitration case Friday, agreeing to a one-year, $4.6 million deal, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Neris is set for a substantial raise after making $1.8 million last season. He saved a career-high 28 games with a 2.93 ERA last season and looks set to close again under new manager Joe Girardi, who has a reputation for preferring much more rigid bullpen roles than his predecessor, Gabe Kapler, did. The deal also includes a club option for the 2021 season which will pay Neris a base salary of $7 million with the potential to earn more in incentives, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Back at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris (illness) returned to the Phillies' spring-training complex Saturday after missing the last few days of workouts while recovering from the flu, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Neris' brief absence to begin camp shouldn't put him too far behind his fellow relievers this spring, when he'll be looking to secure his spot as the Phillies' closer. The 30-year-old turned in the best season of his career in 2019, posting a 2.93 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 89:24 K:BB across 67.2 innings while converting 28 of 34 save chances. Given that new manager Joe Girardi is believed to favor more defined roles for his relievers than predecessor Gabe Kapler, Neris -- who was often used in high-leverage spots outside of the ninth inning under Kapler's watch -- could be in line for more traditional closing duties in 2020. If that's the case, Neris would seemingly have a great chance at delivering his first 30-plus-save campaign, assuming health prevails.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Out with flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris will be away from the team for a few days to start camp as he recovers from the flu, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Neris is expected to rejoin the team no later than this weekend, so his build-up for the upcoming season won't be significantly impacted. Neris is expected to enter the season as the dedicated closer under new manager Joe Girardi, who has a reputation for preferring much stricter bullpen roles than his predecessor, Gabe Kapler, did.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Notches 28th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his 28th save of the season in a 4-1 win over Atlanta.

The 30-year-old is putting together a strong finish to the campaign. Neris has converted five straight save chances, and he sports a 1.69 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB through 10.2 innings in September to help keep the Phillies' fading playoff hopes alive.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Escapes with save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris allowed one earned run on one hit and two walks while striking out one in the ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Braves.

Neris entered the game in the ninth inning with a two-run lead and narrowly escaped with his 27th save of he season. He began his appearance by allowing a solo home run to Adam Duvall, then walked two of the next three batters he faced. However, he managed to strand the game-tying run at third. Neris has now converted his last four save chances successfully, though he had taken the loss in his prior outing and had surrendered an earned run in consecutive appearances. Still, he has maintained a 3.03 ERA and 1.06 WHIP with 85 strikeouts across 65.1 innings for the season.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Locks down 26th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris earned a perfect four-out save with a pair of strikeouts against the Braves on Thursday.

The right-hander came into the eighth inning with two on and two outs and finished things off by forcing Dansby Swanson to line out. He re-entered in the ninth frame and did not allow a baserunner en route to his 26th save of the season. The 30-year-old owns a solid 2.84 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 83:21 K:BB across 63 appearances for the Phillies.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Shuts door on Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris didn't allow a baserunner and struck out one in the ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Braves.

Neris was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning and needed only nine pitches to do the job. He now has 25 saves on the campaign, though it's only his second since Aug. 22. Still, he's pitched effectively when called upon, maintaining a 2.90 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with 81 strikeouts across 62 innings for the season.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Records 24th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris gave up two hits with no walks and struck out two through a scoreless inning to record his 24th save in a 10-7 win over the Mets on Sunday.

Neris allowed the tying run to come to the plate with only one out, but he worked his way out of trouble to nail down his 24th save of the season. Neris has only allowed one earned run and has a 0.68 ERA in his last 14 appearances. The 30-year-old has a 2.95 ERA and 80 strikeouts overall through 61 innings this season.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Blows save but earns win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris (3-5) blew the save but earned the win against the Mets on Sunday, pitching 1.2 scoreless innings and giving up one walk while striking out two.

Neris entered with runners on second and third and one down in the eighth inning and induced a fielder's choice on a grounder to first base but then allowed an inherited run to score on a wild pitch. Buoyed by three runs in the bottom of the inning, Neris returned for the ninth and set the Mets down in order to pick up his third win. The tough-luck blown save was Neris' sixth of the season but he remains in firm control of the closer position in Philadelphia, posting a 3.14 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 75:20 K:BB along with 23 saves this season.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Blows fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris allowed one run on two hits over one inning Monday, striking out one batter and blowing the save in the win over Pittsburgh.

Neris coughed up a game-tying solo blast to Josh Bell in the ninth inning, but fortunately for him, Philadelphia would end up winning in extras. The 30-year-old is now 23-for-28 in save opportunities but this was his first blown chance since July 16. He now owns a 3.29 ERA alongside a 73:17 K:BB.

August 21, 2019 11:28 PM
Phillies' Hector Neris: Notches 23rd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his 23rd save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Red Sox.

The right-hander hasn't blown a save -- or even allowed a run -- in over a month, posting a 17:2 K:BB over his last 13 innings. The hot streak has lowered Neris' ERA to 3.19 on the year, but his 0.97 WHIP and 12.1 K/9 offer a better picture of how dominant he's been as the Phillies' closer.

August 21, 2019 03:56 PM
Phillies' Hector Neris: Grabs 22nd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris allowed one hit with no walks or strikeouts in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Neris was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning and answered with his 22nd save of the season. He was bailed out on a baserunning blunder by Xander Bogaerts, who was thrown out at third one batter after hitting a leadoff double. Regardless of how he got there, Neris has now turned in 12 consecutive scoreless innings. That's aided him in producing a strong 3.25 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 71 strikeouts across 52.2 innings for the season.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Earns 21st save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris allowed one walk, hit a batter and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Cubs.

Neris made things interesting, hitting the first batter he faced prior to walking Victor Caratini with two outs. Nevertheless, he managed to earn his 21st save of the season, in part due to a generous strike-three call against Tony Kemp. Since a couple rocky performances in the middle of July, Neris has turned things around by stringing together nine consecutive scoreless appearances. For the season, he owns a 3.44 ERA and 1.01 WHIP with 68 strikeouts across 49.2 innings.

August 10, 2019 02:16 AM
Phillies' Hector Neris: Records 20th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris tossed a perfect inning with two strikeouts to earn the save against the Giants on Friday.

Called upon in the ninth inning to preserve a 9-6 lead, Neris barely flinched as he retired the only three batters he faced, including strikeouts of Mike Yastrzemski and Evan Longoria. The save was his 20th of the season to go with a 3.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 67:16 K:BB over 48 appearances.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Dropping suspension appeal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris will drop his appeal and serve the three-game suspension handed down by MLB in mid-July, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Neris pitched the eighth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Giants despite trailing 5-1 to provide him some game action prior to serving the ban. The 30-year-old will be able to rejoin the Phillies for Sunday's series finale against the White Sox. Adam Morgan figures to be the top option for the ninth inning during his absence, though Juan Nicasio could also be called upon.

July 18, 2019 10:44 PM
Phillies' Hector Neris: Records 18th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris allowed one earned run on one hit and struck out one to record the save Thursday against the Dodgers.

Neris was able to pitch after appealing his three-game suspension and recorded his 18th save. However, it wasn't without some drama as he allowed a solo home run to Alex Verdugo. Neris has now allowed at least one earned run in five of his last eight appearances, dating back to June 27. While there aren't any clear candidates to take the closer role from him who are currently healthy, David Robertson (elbow) is working back from injury and could take some chances away from Neris if he continues to struggle.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Handed three-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris was suspended three games for intentionally hitting David Freese in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Neris will appeal the suspension, so he'll be available to pitch Wednesday. The reliever has been shaky since the All-Star break, blowing two save chances while allowing five runs across 2.2 innings (three appearances).
