Closer Signs with Chicago Cubs After Leaving Phillies
While Neris's time with the Phillies was impressive, his finest season came in 2023 with the Houston Astros.
With 68 1/3 innings under his belt, he had a 1.71 ERA. Neris played a key role in Houston's 2022 World Series victory over Philadelphia.
The 34-year-old was perfect in his three outings against the Phillies, allowing just one hit in 2.0 innings while striking out four.
