Brad Hand surrendered three runs over seven innings in Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks.
Hand held the Diamondbacks off the board after allowing a solo homer to Cliff Pennington and a two-run blast to Aaron Hill in the first inning, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. He fanned three and walked two. The southpaw has dropped three straight decisions and owns a mediocre 4.58 ERA and 47/32 K/BB ratio over 78 2/3 innings this season. He could be headed back to the bullpen with Henderson Alvarez poised to rejoin the starting rotation. Aug 15 - 10:37 PM

Date:

Brad Hand was touched up for seven runs over just 4 2/3 frames in Sunday's loss to the Reds.

He gave up five hits -- including a pair of homers -- while walking three and striking out two. Hand had pitched really well over his last four outings before today's hiccup, but he still might be vulnerable with Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) returning from the disabled list. As it stands right now, he's slated to face the D'Backs next weekend.
Aug 10 - 4:33 PM

Brad Hand took a no-decision for his role in yielding only two runs over 6 1/3 innings to the Pirates in Tuesday's win.

Hand, quietly, has been a rock for the Marlins over his last four starts. Including tonight's effort, he has a 2.28 ERA over his last 27 2/3 innings. On this night, he allowed six hits and a walk while striking out four on a comfortable evening for baseball. Hand will take his 4.03 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 42/27 K/BB ratio into Sunday's road start against the Reds.
Aug 5 - 10:24 PM

Brad Hand absolutely dominated the Astros offense on Friday, hurling 7 1/3 shutout innings while allowing just three hits.

Hand punched out four on the night while walking two. The 24-year-old now owns a 4.19 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 36/24 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 innings on the season. He remains an unattractive fantasy option when he takes on the Nationals at home on Wednesday.
Jul 25 - 11:30 PM

Brad Hand held the Giants to two earned runs over seven innings Sunday for his first win of 2014.

Hand had to exit his final first-half start with a bruised right shin. He looked refreshed on Sunday, striking out four while issuing only one walk and scattering six hits. He's now 1-2 with a 4.86 ERA in 46 1/3 innings (six starts and 14 relief appearances) this season.
Jul 21 - 3:33 AM

Brad Hand left Sunday's game against the Mets with a bruised right shin.

Hand allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over four innings before exiting. He had thrown 72 pitches, so the lefty probably wouldn't have lasted a whole lot longer, anyway. Hand should be fine after the All-Star break.
Jul 13 - 2:58 PM

Brad Hand yielded a mere unearned run in his start versus the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The lefty allowed eight hits and two walks while striking out two in the no-decision. Hand posted a 6.38 ERA -- mostly as a reliever -- prior to hitting the shelf with a right ankle sprain in May. He's given up just three earned runs in 11 1/3 innings across two starts since his activation last week. Hand will start the last game before the All-Star break, toeing the rubber against the Mets on Sunday.
Jul 9 - 12:21 AM

Brad Hand got a no-decision, allowing three runs over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.

Hand was activated from the disabled list on Wednesday. Prior to the injury, he had served out of the bullpen, as Thursday's start was just his third of the season. The lefty allowed seven hits and one walk while striking out five. He has a 6.21 ERA, a 1.76 WHIP, and a 25/17 K/BB ratio over 29 innings. He'll face the Diamondbacks in Arizona in his next start.
Jul 3 - 9:36 PM

Marlins activated LHP Brad Hand from the 15-day disabled list.

Hand has been sidelined with a right ankle sprain since late May. He made it through four rehab outings with no issues and will start Thursday against the Phillies. The left-hander is not a good fantasy option.
Jul 2 - 10:52 PM

Brad Hand (ankle) will be activated from the disabled list and start on Thursday against the Phillies.

Hand has been sidelined since late May with a right ankle sprain, but he made it though four rehab starts with no issues. The left-hander can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Jul 2 - 3:47 PM

Marlins placed LHP Brad Hand on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain.

Hand had been functioning as the long reliever in the Marlins bullpen. In 16 appearances on the season he has posted a dismal 6.38 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 20/16 K/BB ratio over 24 innings.
May 24 - 12:23 PM

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.
