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.
Phillies reliever Hector Neris struck out one over a perfect inning to earn his 11th save of the season Friday.
Neris was called on to close Friday's game pretty much by default after being reportedly removed from the ninth-inning job. With Sam Coonrod landing on the injured list and Jose Alvarado and Archie Bradley already blowing saves during Friday's doubleheader, Neris got another chance and was able to close the door. He will likely continue to see the occasional save opportunity, but it is looking more and more like the Phillies may be moving to a committee in the short term.
Phillies reliever Hector Neris allowed two earned runs on three hits in Wednesday's loss to the Washington Nationals. He was charged with his fifth blown save and his fourth loss of the season.
Given his recent struggles, it would not be surprising to see Neris lose his grip on the ninth-inning job in Philadelphia. Jose Alvarado and Sam Coonrod are both candidates to close if Neris is removed.
