Latest News

Recent News's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins "are leaning towards retaining" Brad Hand.
It was reported last week that the Marlins were discussing a deal with the Rangers involving Hand. This could be a ploy to get Texas to up their offer, or perhaps Miami has indeed decided they're better off keeping Hand around as depth. Frisaro says that the club had already been hesitant to move Hand even before MLB's investigation into Jarred Cosart's link to gambling. Mar 27 - 9:55 AM

The Rangers and Marlins are discussing a trade for left-hander Brad Hand, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

Hand could help the pitching-needy Rangers, as he is capable of both starting and relieving. The southpaw likely won't have a rotation spot in Miami, freeing him up for a trade. Hand, 25, is out of options and would need to clear waivers if the Marlins don't keep him on their 25-man roster.

Despite walking three batters, Brad Hand pitched four scoreless innings Tuesday against the Mets.

The Marlins' rotation is set and David Phelps is also available as a fallback, so Hand, who is out of options, would seem to be trade bait if anyone wants him. He had a 4.38 ERA in 16 starts and 16 relief appearances for the Marlins last year. So far this spring, he has a 2.25 ERA and a 4/6 K/BB ratio in eight innings.

Brad Hand will prepare as a starting pitcher during spring training.

Hand made 16 starts for the Marlins last season, but a busy offseason leaves him on the outside looking in as spring starts. Hand, 24, will likely only crack the rotation if a starter suffers an injury in the coming weeks. The southpaw had a 4.38 ERA in 111 innings this past season.

Brad Hand held the Phillies to one run over seven innings, but took a no-decision on Wednesday as the Marlins suffered a late loss.

The anemic Phillies offense couldn't do much against the lefty, scoring just the one run despite having two hit batsmen, three walks, and six hits. Hand only struck out two. Hand ends his 2014 season with a 3-8 record, a 4.38 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 67/39 K/BB ratio in 111 innings.

Brad Hand suffered his eighth loss of the season after allowing six runs (five earned) over five innings on Thursday against the Nationals.

Hand was around the zone a lot, throwing 55 of 76 pitches for strikes, but the Nationals were able to take advantage of it. The lefty allowed eight hits, struck out four, and didn't issue a walk. Hand will take a 4.59 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 65/36 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start at home against the Phillies.

Brad Hand fired six scoreless innings Sunday in the Marlins' 4-0 blanking of the Braves.

Atlanta's lineup looked disinterested on getaway day, collecting just five total hits -- and zero runs -- against Hand and the Miami bullpen. Hand struck out three batters and issued no walks. He's now 3-6 with a 4.45 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 57/36 K/BB ratio in 93 innings.

Brad Hand lasted just 4 1/3 innings Sunday, allowing four runs in a loss to the Rockies.

The Rockies got to Hand early, as Nolan Arenado and Mike McKenry hit home runs in the first inning to put him in the hole. Hand later walked in a run, one of three walks he issued in the game, ending his night. The loss dropped him to 2-6 with a 4.71 ERA on the season.
Sun, Aug 24, 2014 08:21:00 PM

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.

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.
Sun, Aug 10, 2014 04:33:00 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.
Tue, Aug 5, 2014 10:24:00 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.
Fri, Jul 25, 2014 11:30:00 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.

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.
Sun, Jul 13, 2014 02:58:00 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.
