4. Hector Neris

Not sure how (or if) Hector Neris manages to be "overlooked", but he gets a mention. Neris posted a sub-2.00 ERA for Houston during the regular season and isn't getting much notice this offseason.

When talking about how to upgrade this Texas bullpen, Neris' name is hardly ever mentioned. Especially if they miss out on Josh Hader, Hector Neris would be an option to turn to who would make this bullpen better.

Neris would instantly be one of the better arms in the Texas bullpen helping a high-leverage spot that desperately needs to be filled.

In his age 34 seasons, Neris appeared in 71 games for Houston striking out 77 in 68.1 innings. Even his velocity was not down much at all into his mid-thirties as he was never the upper-90s guy out of the bullpen.

He had a rough postseason, but the larger sample size regular season shows that Neris would be a quality signing on a short-term deal.
