Brad Hand lasted just three innings and gave up five runs in a loss to the Nationals on Monday.
Hand was making his first start in place of the injured Jacob Turner. He impressed this spring and he had been pitching well in relief, so the Marlins will stick with him after this. NL-only leaguers should continue to exercise caution, though. Apr 14 - 11:11 PM

Brad Hand will start Wednesday against the Nationals in place of the injured Jacob Turner (shoulder).

Hand has thrown five scoreless innings out of the Marlins' bullpen so far this season. It's possible Turner could be out a while, so Hand could make more starts if he pitches well.
Apr 8 - 10:41 PM

Brad Hand tossed four shutout innings in his start versus the Cardinals on Thursday.

A 2.70 spring ERA wasn't quite enough for Hand to win a rotation spot, but the Marlins will carry him as a middle reliever and could give him a look as a starter later. He won't be worth picking up in NL-only leagues unless he's added to the rotation.
Mar 27 - 4:30 PM

Brad Hand took his first loss of the spring after giving up five runs in four innings Saturday against the Mets.

Travis d'Arnaud and Wilmer Flores homered off him, plating all five of the runs. Hand had been strong this spring, with a 0.75 ERA in 13 innings. Still, with Tom Koehler also pitching well, Hand appeared to be no higher than sixth on the SP depth chart. He should have a roster spot anyway, since he's out of options and would be claimed on waivers. A trade can't be completely ruled out.
Mar 22 - 4:24 PM

Brad Hand racked up six strikeouts in five perfect innings on Saturday as four Marlins hurlers combined to no-hit the Yankees in Panama.

Steve Cishek worked the sixth inning, and walked one, but kept the no-hit bid intact. A.J. Ramos continued the effort through the seventh and eighth innings, and Arquimedes Caminero closed it out with a perfect ninth. The 23-year-old Hand has compiled a 0.75 ERA and 15/2 K/BB ratio through 13 innings this spring, which could springboard him to a spot in the Opening Day rotation.
Mar 16 - 12:13 AM

Brad Hand fanned five in three scoreless innings Monday in the Marlins' 11-1 drubbing of the Mets.

Hand entered camp seemingly fourth in line for the fifth spot in the Marlins' rotation, but since he's throwing well and he's out of options, his chances of a roster spot have improved considerably. He's allowed one run and amassed a 9/2 K/BB ratio in seven innings.
Mar 10 - 4:40 PM

Brad Hand allowed one run and two hits in two innings Sunday in his start versus the Nationals.

The Hand-Fister matchup played to a draw, with Brad and Doug both pitching two innings of one-run ball. Hand struck out two and walked none. He hasn't been much of a factor in Miami since making 12 starts as a 21-year-old in 2011, but he's not without some potential. Since he's now out of options, the Marlins might choose to carry him as a reliever.
Mar 2 - 4:20 PM

Brad Hand allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings of a no-decision against the Phillies on Wednesday.

Hand allowed seven hits and a walk, striking out just three. It was just his second career start, and the left-hander now owns a 3.05 ERA over 20 2/3 innings. The 23-year-old may be in contention for a rotation spot next season after this year's showing.

Brad Hand was touched up for four runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

Making his first start in the majors this season, Hand had the lead until he gave up a three-run homer to Lucas Duda in his final inning of work. He struck out four and walked two in the loss. Hand may keep a rotation spot the rest of the way, but he's not worth grabbing in most fantasy leagues.

Marlins recalled LHP Brad Hand from Triple-A New Orleans.

Hand, 23, will serve as a left-handed middle reliever for the Marlins. He posted a 3.42 ERA over 81 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level.

Marlins optioned LHP Brad Hand to Triple-A New Orleans.

Hand walked two but did not allow a hit or a run in 1 2/3 innings of relief with Miami. He'll be back up at some point.

Marlins recalled LHP Brad Hand from Triple-A New Orleans.

The Marlins needed an extra arm after Monday's 15-inning game. Hand had a 2.00 ERA in five starts for the Zephyrs, but he's likely just up to provide some bullpen depth for a couple of days.
Tue, Apr 30, 2013 02:30:00 AM

Marlins optioned LHP Brad Hand, RHPs Evan Reed, Alex Sanabia and OF Kyle Jensen to Triple-A New Orleans; RHP Sam Dyson, LHP Edgar Olmos and OF Marcell Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville.

Hand had an outside shot at a rotation spot this spring, but he allowed four runs and walked five over his first three innings to earn a ticket to minor league camp. He could get a chance with the big club at some point this season.
Mon, Mar 11, 2013 01:34:00 PM

Brad Hand walked four and was charged with two runs while getting just two outs Saturday against the Cardinals.

Hand was decent as a 21-year-old rookie for the Marlins in 2011, posting a 4.20 ERA in 12 starts, but he made just one major league start in a 2012 season spent mostly in Triple-A and he's turned into an afterthought now. He'll probably be sent to minor league camp pretty early in the spring.

Marlins recalled LHP Brad Hand from Triple-A New Orleans.

Hand struggled in a spot start for the Marlins this year but struck out 141 over 148 1/3 frames at Triple-A. He'll likely being next season back at New Orleans.
