Phillies’ Hector Neris appealing three-game suspension for hitting David Freese

Hector Neris

Philadelphia Phillies reliever Hector Neris is appealing a three-game suspension he received Wednesday for hitting David Freese with a pitch the night before.

Neris came in to try and close out a 6-5 lead for the Phillies against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. He surrendered a 3-run home run Matt Beaty to blow the lead and hit Freese around the helmet two pitches later. Neris was ejected.

The Phillies came back to win the game 9-8, but Neris is paying his price. He plans to appeal.

Neris’ suspension is warranted. He wasn’t exacting revenge for an injured teammate the way Noe Ramirez was; he was just upset about blowing the game.
