Hector Neris picks up save Tuesday vs. Rangers

Astros reliever Hector Neris earned his third save of the season Tuesday. He tossed a scoreless ninth, preserving a 4-2 win over the Rangers Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Dusty Baker was likely giving Rafael Montero the night off. He has pitched quite a bit lately with Ryan Pressly on the injured list. Neris was a logical choice to fill in, as he has been superb this season out of the Astros pen.

Hector Neris locks down save in Astros win on Friday

Hector Neris pitched a scoreless ninth inning on Friday to secure a 5-2 win for the Astros over the Mariners. He allowed one hit with one strikeout while recording the save.

Fantasy Impact

With the Astros' primary closer, Ryan Pressly away from the team on paternity leave, Neris was called on to lock down his first save of the season. After failing to hold the lead against the Yankees on Thursday, Neris was given another chance on Friday which he converted. He will return to a setup role shortly when Pressly returns to his usual ninth-inning role.

Hector Neris allows 2 runs, earns hold Sunday

Astros reliever Hector Neris allowed two runs on two hits with a strikeout, but got three outs and preserved the lead for his 13th hold of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Neris' 13 saves this year rank tied for 4th in the majors. Interestingly enough, his ERA is an underwhelming 4.13 and much worse than a couple other relievers in Houston's bullpen. Nevertheless, he is the guy Dusty Baker goes to in a tight game before the 9th. Because of that, leagues that reward holds make Neris worth a roster spot.

Hector Neris picks up another hold for Astros Wednesday

Astros reliever Hector Neris picked up yet another hold in Houston's 2-1 win over the Guardians. It was an easy one, as he faced two batters, walking one and retiring one.

Fantasy Impact

The longtime Phillies relief pitcher appears to have reinvented himself with the Astros. He struggled with his command for years, but has significantly cut down his walks. He boasts a 6.7 K/BB ratio, more than double what he posted last year. His 0.74 WHIP is nothing to sneeze at either. In deep mixed leagues that reward holds, he is certainly worth a pick up.
