Phillies send Hector Neris back to minors after 'shell-shock' performance against Nationals

After giving up three home runs in the ninth inning Friday night, struggling reliever Hector Neris got sent down to triple-A for the second time in two weeks. It's doubtful the Phillies will be so quick to call him back up this time.

On Monday, the Phillies said enough was enough. #Phillies have selected the contract of LHP Austin Davis from Lehigh Valley (AAA). To make...

Are Hector Neris' problems due to his mind or his mechanics? Gabe Kapler isn't sure | Bob Brookover

Gabe Kapler's mix-and-match bullpen usage might have played a role in Hector Neris' downfall, but if the reliever wants to get back to the big leagues he has to be successful in whatever role he is used in.
