Brad Hand lost to the Nationals on Sunday, giving up three runs over 3 1/3 innings.

Hand walked in a run in the third inning, then allowed three of the first four batters he faced to reach base in the fourth, leading to two more runs. Overall, he allowed five hits, walked four, and struck out one in a subpar outing. The lefty now has an ugly 5.32 ERA with a 1.45 WHIP and a 59/24 K/BB ratio over 86 1/3 innings. Hand will get the Nationals again over the weekend, but he won't have home field advantage.

Brad Hand was destroyed by the Mets in Saturday's 7-0 loss, allowing seven runs on six hits in just 1 2/3 innings

Three of the six hits that Hand surrendered left the park, as Travis d'Arnaud cracked a three-run bomb in the first, which Wilmer Flores immediately followed up with a solo shot. Juan Lagares would add a two-run homer in the second before Hand was mercifully relieved of duty. The horrific showing bumped the 25-year-old southpaw's ERA from 4.54 to 5.20. He's set to face the Nationals at home in his next scheduled start.
Sep 5 - 9:52 PM

Brad Hand couldn't hold a 3-0 lead in Sunday's loss to the Nationals, surrendering five runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Hand struck out five and walked two on the afternoon. The ghost of Jayson Werth accounted for three of the five runs on his line, as the outfielder took him deep for a two-run homer in the third and notched an RBI double in the fifth. The 25-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.54 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into a home showdown with the Mets next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 30 - 4:48 PM

Brad Hand allowed two runs over eight innings in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

Hand allowed seven hits and a lone run through eight innings and was given the opportunity to finish what he started, but two singles to lead off the ninth ended his night. The left-hander struck out five without walking a batter in the effort. With the win, Hand improved to 4-3 with a 4.23 ERA and 1.28 WHIP on the year. Another tough test awaits Hand when the Marlins visit the Nationals on Sunday.

Brad Hand allowed one run and four hits over six innings in beating the Phillies on Thursday.

Hand was given four runs in the first and four more in the second tonight, allowing him to cruise to an easy victory. Well, it should have been easy anyway... the bullpen gave up six runs after taking over to put it into doubt. Hand remains a weak bet in NL-only leagues.
Aug 20 - 11:46 PM

Brad Hand was hammered for six earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Randal Grichuk opened the flood gates in the bottom of the first inning with a solo blast to deep left field. St. Louis scored another two runs in the bottom of the second and then Mark Reynolds launched a three-run shot in the sixth. Hand walked none and struck out five, but he coughed up 11 hits. The 25-year-old left-hander will carry a 4.74 ERA into his next start at home against the Phillies.
Aug 15 - 9:45 PM

Brad Hand fired seven innings of one-run ball on Sunday, scattering just two hits in a victory over the Braves.

Hand punched out three and walked two in the impressive outing. The only blemish on his day was a solo homer off the bat of Jonny Gomes in the seventh inning. Hand also contributed with the stick, plating the Marlins first run with a safety squeeze in the second inning, and driving home another with a fielder's choice in the sixth. He'll carry a 4.29 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals in St. Louis.
Aug 9 - 8:27 PM

Brad Hand threw four scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Tuesday.

Hand, making his first start since June 8, scattered five hits and a walk over his four innings. He left with a lead, despite not being eligible for the win, but the Mets eventually came back against the Marlins bullpen. Hand owns a 4.71 ERA and 1.37 WHIP on the year. His next turn in the rotation will come Sunday at the Braves.
Aug 4 - 10:38 PM

Brad Hand will start on Tuesday versus the Mets.

Hand has worked mostly in long relief this season, but he'll get a chance to start following the trade of Dan Haren. The left-hander holds a 5.12 ERA over 45 2/3 innings this season and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Aug 2 - 1:40 PM

Joe Frisaro of reports that Brad Hand and Tom Koehler have been mentioned in possible trade talks.

Koehler was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday, so there's a chance that something could be brewing. Both hurlers could be attractive trade targets due to their versatility to start or work multiple innings out of the bullpen.
Jun 20 - 3:03 PM

Brad Hand was demolished by the Blue Jays' offense in Monday's loss, surrendering six runs in two-thirds of an inning.

One might say that things got out of hand quickly. The Jays banged out six hits and a walk to plate six runs, chasing Hand from the game after recording only two outs in the start. Hand was recently moved into the rotation as the Marlins have suffered from numerous injuries in the starting rotation. As Monday's start shows, he's of little fantasy value. The lefty will face the Rockies at home in his next start.
Jun 8 - 10:04 PM

Brad Hand held the Cubs to two runs over six innings Tuesday to earn his first win of the season.

Hand allowed six hits and two walks over his six innings. The southpaw struck out two. He was pressed into starting duty recently after the Marlins lost both Henderson Alvarez and Mat Latos to injury, and Hand has been good through two starts, allowing two runs over 11 innings of work. He lowered his ERA to 4.24 with the win. Hand will have a tough interleague test Monday when the Marlins travel to take on the Blue Jays.
Jun 2 - 9:46 PM

Brad Hand blanked the Pirates over five innings of work but took a no-decision as the Marlins lost on Wednesday.

Hand allowed only four hits, issued no walks, and struck out two in the effort. Only one of the hits went for extra bases. The lefty was moved from the bullpen to make a spot start as the Marlins are dealing with a rash of injuries in their starting rotation. Hand has a 4.50 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and a 20/6 K/BB ratio in 28 innings. If the Marlins call on him to start again, he would do so at home against the Cubs.
May 27 - 3:23 PM

Brad Hand will start Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

The Marlins are scrambling for starters with Jarred Cosart (vertigo), Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) and Mat Latos (knee) on the disabled list. Jose Urena started Tuesday and now Hand will be pulled out of the bullpen to take the ball Wednesday. Hand last pitched two-thirds of an inning on Sunday and hasn't gone more than 2 2/3 frames this month. Obviously he won't be long for Wednesday's contest.
