Early in the season, it appeared Gabe Kapler was going to play the ninth inning by ear. While Neris didn't receive many opportunities early in the season, that was has only because the Phillies kept either winning big or losing. Clearly the undisputed closer, he has recorded 21 saves. While his ERA ballooned to 4.08 in July, it has dropped back to 3.44 alongside an elite 17.8% swinging-strike rate. He's still a tremendous source of strikeouts who has eliminated any possible closer controversy by tossing nine straight scoreless innings.

Neris has had a rough month for the Phillies but he is still closing games and overall, has a solid first half line with over 50 Ks and a WHIP south of 1.20. He should be rostered in every league.
