Probably best known for an unorthodox pitching delivery, Neshek's arm motion slots about sidearm, with an explosive release point, which developed after a baseball struck his forearm in high school. Right-handed batters have difficulty tracking the path of his pitches, resulting in a .193 batting average, .243 on-base percentage, and a .311 slugging percentage against Neshek, in 1,143 career plate appearances, through 2019.
In 2019 with the Phillies he pitched only 18 innings, and was 0-1 with three saves, before his season ended due to a hamstring injury he incurred in June that ultimately required surgery in September. He was the 4th-oldest player in the National League.
In 2018 with the Phillies, he was 3-2 with five saves and a 2.59 ERA, and 15 strikeouts in 24.1 innings. He was the 8th-oldest player in the National League.
Neshek was traded to the Colorado Rockies for minor league players Jose Gomez, JD Hammer, and Alejandro Requena on July 26, 2017. In 2017 with the Rockies, he was 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA, and 24 strikeouts in 22 innings. His 23 holds between the two teams was tied for 5th in the NL.
On December 15, 2017, Neshek signed a two-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. Neshek announced that he would wear uniform number 93, which had never been worn by an MLB player during regular season play. On March 30, 2018, Neshek was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain. On July 2, he was activated off the disabled list.
Neshek was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies for a player to be named later on November 4, 2016. He was an NL All Star; his second All Star appearance. In 2017 with the Phillies, he was 3-2 with one save and a 1.12 ERA, and 45 strikeouts in 40.1 innings.
Neshek signed a minor league deal with the St. Louis Cardinals on February 6, 2014, with an invitation to spring training and an opportunity as a right-handed specialist against right-handed batters from the bullpen. After the mixed performances of the previous two seasons and less-than-satisfying offers from other teams, he had worked during the offseason specifically to target an increase in fastball velocity. This followed after the New York Mets commented to him they wanted to see increased velocity. It gradually surged, showing up to 92 miles per hour (148 km/h), up from a consistent 87–88 miles per hour (140–142 km/h) from the year before. Pleased with the increased velocity, the Cardinals purchased his contract on March 30, thereby awarding him a spot on the 25-man MLB roster.
On December 10, 2014, Neshek agreed to a two-year, $12.5MM contract with the Houston Astros. The deal was made official on December 12. In 2015 he was 3-6 with one save, 28 holds (tied for 3rd in the AL), and a 3.62 ERA, and 51 strikeouts in 54.2 innings. In 2016 he was 2-2 with a 3.06 ERA, and 43 strikeouts in 47 innings.
After joining the Cardinals in 2014, Neshek's sinking fastball showed effectiveness well-above expectations through May 21. With a mean movement of 10.9 inches, it averaged more horizontal movement than any other pitch from any other reliever on the Cardinals staff, which was 1.3 inches more than Carlos Martínez' two-seam fastball. Martínez' own fastball has been heralded for its movement. Neshek's sinking fastball also averaged over 91 miles per hour (146 km/h) during that time, its highest velocity since 2007.
Neshek suffered his first loss of the season against the New York Yankees on July 5, but then won three games in 14 days improving his record to 6–1. He posted a 3.97 ERA during the month of July, losing his second game but winning his seventh game and bringing his season record to 7–2 but with a 5.06 ERA for the month. On September 20, the Twins shut him down for the season because of shoulder/elbow fatigue. Neshek ended the season at 7–2, appearing in 74 games (5th in the National League) with 74 strikeouts and pitching a total of 70 ⁄3 innings with a 2.94 ERA. He was honored at the annual Twins' diamond ceremony with the 2007 Dick Siebert Award.
On September 22, Neshek gave up the game-tying home run in the bottom of the 13th inning to New York Yankees slugger Raúl Ibañez. The A's had scored four runs in the top of the inning, leading to a galling 10–9 loss the next inning. However, the A's defeated the Yankees the next day and went 9–2 to end the season, edging the Texas Rangers out of the American League West championship by one game, including sweeping the final three-game series in Oakland. In 24 games with the A's, Neshek tallied 19 ⁄3 IP, yielding 10 hits and six walks, with 16 SO and a 1.37 ERA. He relied heavily on the slider, throwing it 83.5 percent of all pitches.
The Cardinals traded for John Lackey at the non-waiver deadline on July 31, and Neshek volunteered to change his number from 41 to 37. Lackey had worn 41 with past teams. To facilitate the exchange, Lackey mailed Neshek a Babe Ruth–autographed baseball the next month. In an August 10 appearance against the Orioles, Neshek's sinker was clocked at 93 miles per hour (150 km/h) as he completed two innings and struck out four, tying a career high. On August 19 against the Cincinnati Reds, he worked the last inning and picked up the decision in a Cardinals' walk-off win. It was his sixth win of the year against zero losses. For the month, he registered two saves and two wins. In 2014 he was 7-2 with six saves and a 1.87 ERA, and 68 strikeouts in 67.1 innings. Despite having only given up 4 home runs the entire season, Neshek surrendered a postseason game-losing home run in Game 2 of the 2014 National League Division Series to Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the game-tying home run in Game 5 of the 2014 National League Championship Series to Michael Morse of the San Francisco Giants, which ultimately lead to the elimination of the Cardinals in the 2014 postseason.
On January 30, 2012, he signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles and was invited to spring training, but ultimately did not make the opening day roster and spent the next several months at Triple-A Norfolk Tides. For the week of June 25 – July 1, he was named the International League's Pitcher of the Week. He notched three saves and eight SO in 4 ⁄3 IP, and had not surrendered a hit since May 29. In his time at Norfolk, he amassed 11 saves and a 2.66 ERA in 35 relief appearances, with 49 SO in 44 IP, and walked just seven while giving up only one home run.
The Oakland Athletics traded for Neshek on August 3, 2012, for cash considerations, and immediately called him up from Triple-A Norfolk.
On November 30, 2012, Neshek avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal with the A's. He started the season well, posted a 2.34 ERA in his first 38 appearances into August, with 30 of them being scoreless. However, he gave up three runs apiece in two different appearances. Neshek attributed his early success to throwing almost exclusively sliders to right-handed hitters. Of all his pitches, he threw the slider 73 percent of the time in 2013.
An avid autograph collector, Neshek has created and runs his own website for his fans to interact and talk about collecting autographs. He has auctioned off some of his game-used items in exchange for memorabilia. The site has over 7000 members. He is also a fan of the baseball sim Out of the Park Baseball, commenting in a tweet on August 12, 2012: "Spent the day off yesterday playing OOTP13 Baseball for most of the day. Talk about addicting."
Neshek is married to Stephanee Neshek. Their first son, Gehrig John, was born on October 2, 2012, the day the A's won the AL West division title. However, he lived only 23 hours. The cause of the infant's death has not been made public. The autopsy of the baby did not provide sufficient clarity about the cause of death, and there are lawsuits pending. Their second son, Hoyt Robert Neshek, was born on March 13, 2014. The Nesheks received a scare because Hoyt was born 11 days early with pneumonia and an air pocket outside his lungs. After remaining in intensive care for 10 days, he was released and his condition improved to, and remained at, full health. Their third child, Shae, was born in December 2015; and their fourth, Skye, in April 2017.
Neshek was acquired off waivers on March 20, 2011, by the San Diego Padres. He was designated for assignment on August 20 after going 1-1 and recording a 4.01 ERA with 20 strikeouts in 24.2 innings over in 25 appearances for the Padres. At season's end, he became a free agent.
He recovered to make the Twins' 2010 roster out of spring training. In 4 ⁄3 innings pitched, he had a 4.15 ERA with two runs and two hits allowed. But he was put on the disabled list on April 15 soon after the start of the regular season due to middle finger inflammation. But when he was re-examined, an MRI revealed that the injury was not in fact in the middle finger but rather in the palm of his right hand. He angrily wrote about this not only on his website but also on Facebook, where he said he was "not happy with anything that has gone on, especially when it could have been taken care of three weeks ago and I was told the wrong info."
This raised Twin manager Ron Gardenhire's ire, in that his young pitcher had publicly criticized the Twins' organization and their medical staff, but the matter was eventually settled, Neshek saying "Gardy and I are on the same page" and vowing that once healthy he would be willing to pitch wherever the Twins assign him, calling the whole thing "a miscommunication." After his time on the DL ran out he was optioned to Triple-A Rochester but recalled to the majors on September 6, finishing 2010 0–1 and 5.00 with nine strikeouts and eight walks in nine innings.
In his first three appearances of 2008, Neshek allowed only one hit in 3 ⁄3 innings pitched with no earned runs, but then allowed seven earned runs in his next 10 innings. In May, after pitching in only 13.1 innings, he was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) and missed the rest of the season. On November 11, it was announced that he would undergo ligament replacement surgery (more commonly known as Tommy John surgery) and miss the entire 2009 season. He underwent surgery one week later on November 18.
He began the 2007 season 2–0 and with a 2.25 ERA. In May, he gave up only six hits in 13 ⁄3 innings pitched, had 18 strikeouts and posted a very impressive 0.66 ERA. He was chosen as one of five candidates for the final online fan vote for the All-Star game along with Jeremy Bonderman, Kelvim Escobar, Roy Halladay, and Hideki Okajima. The spot went to Okajima despite a campaign by Twin fans and national sports blogs to "Pitch in for Pat". Neshek finished third in the voting.

Neshek made his MLB debut on July 7, 2006, pitched two innings and allowed just one hit. On July 30, he earned his first major league career win against the Detroit Tigers after pitching one-third of an inning. Neshek appeared in 32 games in his rookie year, accumulating 37 IP, a 4–2 W–L, allowing six home runs (HR), but just 23 H and 53 SO with a 2.19 ERA. Those rates were 5.6 hits per nine innings allowed (H/9) and 12.5 strikeouts per 9 innings pitched (K/9).
At Butler University, located in Indianapolis, he was a finance major and a three-year letter winner. In 2001, he played collegiate summer baseball with the Wareham Gatemen of the Cape Cod Baseball League. In his junior year, his win–loss record was 4–6 but he posted a 3.08 earned run average (ERA) and 94 strikeouts (SO) in 87 ⁄3 innings pitched (IP). He holds school strikeout records for a single game (18 vs. Detroit, April 15, 2001), single season (118, 2001), and career (280). He ultimately became the third Butler pitcher to make the major leagues, after Oral Hildebrand and Doug Jones. In 2018, Neshek was inducted into the Butler Athletics Hall of Fame.
