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.

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.
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.
