Rockies Trade Brad Hand To Braves

The Atlanta Braves have acquired left-handed reliever Brad Hand from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for right-handed pitching prospect Alec Barger, according to FanSided's Robert Murray. In his first season with the Rockies, Hand has pitched 35.2 innings of relief work, earning a 4.03 FIP, 10.35 K/9, and 4.04 BB/9. The southpaw mostly relies on his slider but also features a fastball and sinker. This trade could have some allure for the Braves beyond 2023 since Hand has a club option heading into next season. Nevertheless, the focus is on the short-term as the Braves hope Hand can offer a reliable, veteran presence in their bullpen as they compete for a playoff spot. For the time being, Hand isn't on the fantasy radar.

Brad Hand Signs With Rockies

The Colorado Rockies have reached an agreement with free agent relief pitcher Brad Hand. The two sides have agreed on a one-year deal worth $2 million for the 2023 season. This deal also includes a $7 million club option for the 2024 campaign. The left-hander posted a 2.80 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and a 38/23 K/BB ratio 45 innings with the Philadelphia Phillies last season. This is an odd fit for Hand, but he should immediately become a high-leverage pitcher in Colorado. The three-time All-Star is a significant upgrade to this bullpen, but will really only have fantasy value if he becomes the closer.

Brad Hand Earns Lucky Win

Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Brad Hand was credited with the win in Saturday night's NLCS Game 4, but he hardly deserved it. Hand threw one inning, giving up two runs on a hit and a walk with no strikeouts. In five playoff appearances, Hand has been largely ineffective, with a 7.36 ERA and 1.64 WHIP to his name in 3 2/3 innings. With Philadelphia on the brink of the World Series, Hand figures to play a meaningful role out of the bullpen, largely as a result of the lack of other options.

Brad Hand Good To Go For Phillies

Philadelphia Phillies left-handed reliever Brad Hand (elbow) was activated from the 15-day injured list and is on the team's roster for the National League Wild-Card Series against the St. Louis Cardinals this weekend. Hand was put on the injured list on Sept. 22 with left elbow tendinitis, but he's recovered and will be available out of the bullpen for Game 1 of the series in St. Louis on Friday. The 32-year-old veteran southpaw pitched well for Philadelphia this year, posting a 2.80 ERA (3.94 FIP), a 1.33 WHIP, five saves, 13 holds and 38 strikeouts in 45 innings pitched. Brad probably won't see any save opportunities in the postseason, but he could be a very important option against lefties late in ballgames.

Brad Hand Converts Save Friday

Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Brad Hand recorded his second save of the season on Friday in a 5-3 win over the Washington Nationals. This is an interesting development, as the bulk of fantasy players expected Seranthony Dominguez to take over the role of closer after the news of Corey Knebel losing the job came out. It should be noted that Dominguez faced the heart of the Nationals order while Hand faced the bottom of the order, and then the Nationals first and second hitters after he allowed two baserunners. Hand also came in to face a lefty, so it looks like the back end of the Phillies bullpen will be used on a matchup basis. Hand is widely available and looks like a decent option for saves in deeper leagues.

Brad Hand Agrees With Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies and free-agent left-hander Brad Hand agreed to a one-year, $6 million deal on Monday, according to sources familiar with the deal. The New York Mets were considering re-signing Hand, but instead he'll land with the division-rival Phillies for the 2022 season. Corey Knebel is projected to open the season as the team's closer in the ninth inning, but that could easily change at some point. Along with Hand, the Phillies added right-hander Jeurys Familia to the back of the bullpen on Sunday. Hand, a 31-year-old southpaw, has 126 career saves in 11 big-league seasons and had 21 saves and a 3.90 ERA in 64 2/3 relief innings with the Mets, Washington Nationals and Toronto Blue Jays in 2021. He'll be a speculative addition for saves in fantasy leagues, and he'll also be useful in holds leagues.

Brad Hand On The Mets Radar

Free-agent relief pitcher Brad Hand is on the New York Mets radar. The Mets are trying to add a good left-handed reliever to a strong righty-heavy bullpen before spring training. Andrew Chafin is another possibility for New York. Hand pitched for three teams last year, including the Mets. In his 16 appearances (13 1/3 innings) in New York, the southpaw allowed four earned runs while striking out 14 and walking five. Overall, he had a 3.90 ERA and 1.27 WHIP while recording 21 saves (all with the Washington Nationals) in 64 2/3 frames. If Hand returns to the Mets, he'll likely serve in a setup role in front of closer Edwin Diaz.

Brad Hand Claimed Off Waivers By Mets

The New York Mets have claimed relief pitcher Brad Hand off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto designated Hand for assignment on Tuesday. A trade deadline acquisition by the Blue Jays, the veteran has pitched to a 4.21 ERA, a 4.87 FIP, 47 strikeouts, and 21 walks in 51.1 innings this season. He joins a Mets bullpen that also includes Aaron Loup, Seth Lugo, Trevor May, Jeurys Familia, Heath Hembree, and closer Edwin Diaz. Given how well Diaz is pitching this season, Hand probably only has value in deeper fantasy leagues where holds are part of the scoring.

Brad Hand Designated For Assignment

The Toronto Blue Jays designated relief pitcher Brad Hand for assignment on Tuesday. Hand was acquired from the Washington Nationals prior to the trade deadline. He had really struggled during his time with the Blue Jays. Over 11 appearances and 8.2 innings, he posted a 7.27 ERA and a 1.85 WHIP. He failed to convert his only save opportunity with the team. Jordan Romano is the primary closer for the Blue Jays right now and if he falters, Adam Cimber and Tim Mayza appear to be next in line.

Brad Hand Placed On The Bereavement List

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Brad Hand was placed on the bereavement list Thursday. His grandfather passed away, and he will miss anywhere from 3-to-7 days. The southpaw has struggled in August, owning a 6.43 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 3.9 HR/9 over seven innings During the month. The Blue Jays acquired Hand at the trade deadline. Despite his recent struggles, Hand continues to be used in high-leverage situations. The 31-year-old has more fantasy value in leagues that reward solds (saves and holds) as Jordan Romano continues to handle closing duties.
