Robbie Ray
News 
 Matt Breen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports the four Phillies who were placed on the injured list this week were in fact placed on the COVID-19 IL.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Thu, Jul 2nd
Robbie Ray gave up one earned run on three hits while striking out three in 4.0 innings while earning the win against the Rangers on Thursday.
Jon Mathisen
Fri, Mar 6th
 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
Wouldn't it be the most Robbie Ray thing in the world if he got pulled at 4.2 innings each start this year? Great strikeouts, bad command. We know who he is.
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
While the overall numbers fluctuate, Ray is largely the same guy he's always been. He's going to amass a ton of strikeouts and he's going to hand out free passes like a doctor handing out lollipops. It is just impossible to rely on a starter who can't top 175 innings or keep his WHIP below 1.33. Ray is certainly rosterable but close your eyes when he's pitching.
