Thu, Jul 2nd
 
 The Phillies placed Hector Neris on the 10-day IL with an undisclosed injury.
Joe Buttgereit - Fantasy Sports Nerdz
Thu, Jul 2nd
 
 The Phillies and closer Hector Neris avoided arbitration by reaching an agreement on a one-year $4.6 million deal. The contract includes a $7 million option for 2021.

Notes 
 If Neris is the guy in Philly, he'll finish a lot higher than the 153rd player.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Alex Fast loves Matthew Boyd, so I, in turn, love Matthew Boyd. He's in a fantastic park, but he still gave up far too many homers and won't win many games with the Tigers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Neris rebounded from a spotty 2018 to become an incredibly reliable reliever last year and tally 28 saves for the Phillies. His stuff isn't overpowering and his control is mediocre, but his split-finger is elite and he leaned into it more than ever. The resulting increase in ground balls helped stabilize Neris' numbers last year and should again make him a reliable, if unexciting, option in the bullpen in 2020.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Armed with a devastating slider into which he leaned heavily, Boyd had an impressive opening to his season, putting up gaudy strikeout numbers with impressive overall stats. Unfortunately, his ERA rose from 3.87 in the first half to 5.51 in the second half, with his WHIP coming along for the ride. An awful .318 BABIP on groundballs didn't help, but that number isn't all that surprising given the defense behind him. With almost no win potential, Boyd is more of a back-end-of-the-rotation fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  If the ball gets dejuiced, there may be no player more positively impacted than Matt Boyd. Boyd was destroyed by the long ball in 2019, and if he can cut that rate in half or even by a quarter, we may have a solid SP2 for fantasy purposes.
