27-year old righty reliever Hector Neris has been incredible for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2016. He has pitched in a National League leading 60 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Phillies and he is 4-3 with 1 save, a 2.35 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. Neris has given up 44 hits and 18 walks while whiffing 77 batters in his first 61 1/3 innings for the Phillies so far this year! Since July 1st, Neris has pitched in 18 games (0 starts) for the Phillies in which he is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP. Neris has now pitched in 93 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Phillies and he is 7-5 with 1 save, a 2.89 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Don’t be surprised if Neris is the Phillies’ closer down the road. But for now, he will bide his time behind Jeanmar Gomez, who is having a career year in 2016 as the Phillies’ closer.
