RotoWire News: Neris tossed a scoreless inning of relief Sunday and picked up his first save of the spring in the Phillies' 6-3 win over the Pirates. (3/27/2017)

Profile: Hector Neris was lights out for most of last year. He stunk in September, but this was his first full season in the majors and he threw 80.1 innings which was fifth most of any relief pitcher. The Phillies have a lot of ambiguity at closer with Jeanmar Gomez the incumbent and Jaoquin Benoit as another late inning option, but Neris probably is the best pitcher of the three and he is probably the best of the three to invest in long term. Of course, Gomez could maintain the role and Neris would solely be a handcuff, but you are going to be losing a lot in terms of rate stats if you own Gomez as one of your closers. Neris is looking to add a slider to his fastball/splitter combination, which could potentially make him even more difficult to hit. His splitter is one of the best in the game and he throws it 50% of the time. Adding a slider could give him a bit more deception and would potentially make his splitter even more effective. Keep an eye on how the slider looks this spring, but regardless he is one of the best investments as a non-closer reliever given his skill set and the likelihood of Gomez struggling. (Ben Duronio)

The Quick Opinion: Neris is still a set up man, but he is one of the best bets in the league to eventually become closer. He still has Jaoquin Benoit around even if Jeanmar Gomez struggles, but Neris' splitter is a worthy pitch to invest in.
