Astros relief pitcher Hector Neris was roughed up by Boston Monday. He was charged with three runs on three hits and a walk as Houston lost 6-3.
Neris has been nearly untouchable out of the bullpen for Houston this year. Everyone is allowed a random blow up from time to time. Deep mixed leagues that reward holds should do just that, hold onto him.
Free-agent relief pitcher Hector Neris is signing a two-year deal that includes $17 million in guaranteed money pending a physical with the team.
Neris will give the Astros another high-impact arm out of their bullpen. In 74 appearances last season, Neris posted a 3.63 earned run average, 1.17 WHIP and 98 strikeouts for the Phillies last season.
Hector Neris allowed three runs on three hits in an inning of work on Wednesday against the Yankees.
Neris earned the save on Sunday, but this outing won't help him in the immediate future. Ranger Suarez remains the best bet for saves in Philadelphia right now.
Phillies reliever Hector Neris struck out two over a perfect inning to convert his 12th save of the season in Sunday's win over the Marlins.
Neris lost the ninth-inning job in Philadelphia but was able to earn the save on Sunday with Ranger Suarez unavailable. If he continues to pitch well, it's possible Neris sees future save opportunities, especially with Suarez blowing a save on Saturday.
Phillies reliever Hector Neris took the loss and the blown save in Saturday's loss to the Mets, allowing two unearned runs on one hit and two walks while striking out one.
The Philadelphia bullpen is a mess right now, and Neris appears to have lost his chance to reclaim the ninth-inning job just a couple of days after losing it for the first time. Jose Alvarado is likely to see save opportunities going forward, though Neris could still serve as part of the committee.
