Hector Neris Barely Clings to Save Against Rays

Hector Neris allowed two hits and a walk while giving up one earned run but still managed to secure the save in the Cubs' 4-3 victory over the Rays on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This outing, while successful in adding another save to his tally, was hardly a showcase of dominance. With a season ERA now over 4.21 and a WHIP that continues to hover uncomfortably high at 1.64, Neris's grip on the closer role could be in jeopardy if these tightrope acts continue. His strikeout rate remains decent, but the lack of control and high number of base runners allowed per inning are red flags for fantasy managers. While he notched the save today, his performances suggest a potential for more blown saves unless he can regain some measure of control and efficiency.

Hector Neris Seals the Deal in Crosstown Nail-Biter

Hector Neris notched a save despite allowing a walk in a scoreless inning as the Cubs edged out the White Sox 7-6.

Fantasy Impact

While Neris managed to keep his ERA tidy, his performance was far from dominant, lacking any strikeouts and flirting with danger by allowing a base runner. His season-long WHIP of 1.55 and modest K/9 of 7.4 continue to be areas of concern, suggesting that his ability to consistently close games could be shaky. Fantasy managers should view Neris as a volatile save option, capable of securing points but also at risk of blowing leads if his command wavers.

Hector Neris seals the deal against Reds

Hector Neris notched a save, allowing one hit and striking out two in a scoreless inning as the Cubs edged out the Reds 7-5 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Despite his shaky WHIP and less-than-stellar FIP this season, Neris managed to secure his seventh save, hinting at some reliability in clutch situations. His performance today might offer a glimmer of hope for fantasy managers, but his overall stats suggest caution. With a K/9 rate that's less inspiring and a high WHIP, Neris remains a risky play in most fantasy leagues. His role as a closer is secure for now, but fantasy managers should keep an eye on any potential shifts in the Cubs' bullpen strategy or his performance trends.

Hector Neris clinches shaky save against Brewers

Hector Neris allowed one run and two hits over an inning to notch a save in the Cubs' 6-5 victory over the Brewers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Despite securing the save, Neris's performance was less than stellar, allowing multiple baserunners and narrowly maintaining the lead. His season-long metrics, including a bloated 1.69 WHIP and a concerning 5.41 FIP, suggest that his save opportunities could be in jeopardy if this trend continues. Fantasy managers should be wary; while he's accumulating saves, his underlying numbers indicate potential volatility ahead, making him a risky play in all but the deepest of leagues.
