The Phillies are in last place, and Neshek's stellar performance so far likely makes him a hot commodity for contending clubs looking for relief help as the July 31 trade deadline approaches.
When asked by Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com if he believes the Phillies would trade him, Neshek said "I'm sure it will happen."
The 36-year-old right-hander has posted an 0.82 ERA in 24 appearances, allowing 13 hits and two runs to go along with a 21-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio across 22 innings since joining Philadelphia last November in what was essentially a salary dump by his previous team, the Houston Astros.
Neshek earned his first save in two years Tuesday night vs. the Atlanta Braves, retiring the final two batters on five pitches.
Neshek is a free agent at the end of the season.
