Phillies closer Hector Neris allowed two earned runs on a hit and two walks while striking out one over an inning of work to blow his second save of the season against the Braves Saturday.
Neris has now allowed a run in two of his last three appearances, increasing his ERA from 1.54 to 2.94 in the process. He is still locked in as the closer in Philadelphia for now, but Jose Alvarado could see opportunities in the future if Neris's struggles continue.
Hector Neris went 1.2 innings, allowing two hits, and striking out three in Monday's save effort versus the Brewers.
Neris has done a rock solid job serving as the Phillies primary closer in 2021. He is 6-for-7 in save opportunities, and currently has a 1.88 ERA. As of now, his role is solidified, and he should be viewed as a top-20 closer the rest of the way.
Phillies closer Hector Neris allowed one hit and struck out one over an inning of work to earn his third save of the season in Saturday's win over the Rockies.
Neris bounced back after allowing a run and taking the loss on Friday and is now three-for-four in save opportunities to start the year. Through 10 appearances, Neris has a 2.08 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 11 strikeouts over 8 2/3 innings.
Phillies reliever Hector Neris allowed one earned run on one hit over 1/3 of an inning and took the loss on Friday against the Rockies.
Through nine appearances this season, Neris is 1-2 with two saves, a 2.35 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, and 10 strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings. He is still locked in as the closer in Philadelphia despite allowing runs in two of his last four appearances.
Phillies closer Hector Neris allowed one earned run on three hits and a walk over 1/3 of an inning in Tuesday's loss to the New York Mets.
Neris had been excellent for the Phillies this season and hadn't allowed an earned run in five appearances before Tuesday, so he isn't going to lose the ninth-inning job based on one bad performance.
