2022 Player Outlook
Neris locked down 12 saves for the Phillies last year, alongside a 3.63 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 11.9 K/9. Now, he also blew seven saves and posted a double-digit walk rate for the second straight season. The strikeouts continue to be there for Neris, thanks to a devastating splitter. If the Astros can sprinkle that Houston magic and bring out the best in Neris, he could be in line for a career year. It might not be his best year for fantasy purposes, given that he isn't his team's primary closer, but in reality, it could be his best season as a professional. If Ryan Pressly were to falter or get hurt, Neris would be one of the primary candidates to lock down the ninth.
