  • Brad Hand: Atlanta declines option

    Atlanta declined their half of Hand's $7 million mutual option for 2024 on Sunday. Hand posted a 7.50 ERA in 20 appearances after being acquired from Colorado at the trade deadline, so paying the $500,000 buyout was a no-brainer for Atlanta. The 33-year-old lefty also had a 4.54 ERA over 35.2 innings for the Rockies, with his combined 5.53 ERA being the worst of his MLB career.

  • Braves' Brad Hand: Notches extra-inning save

    Hand picked up the save in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over Philadelphia. He notched one strikeout in a perfect 10th inning. After Atlanta's closer, Raisel Iglesias, blew a save in the ninth inning, Hand successfully shut the door on Philadelphia's comeback effort with a perfect 10th inning. It was the 33-year-old's first save of the year after amassing 129 over the previous six seasons. Despite Iglesias blowing back-to-back chances, there is little doubt that he will remain the top option to close out games down the stretch.

  • Braves' Brad Hand: Shipped to Atlanta

    The Rockies traded Hand to Atlanta on Tuesday in exchange for Alec Barger, Robert Murray of reports. Hand is not all that far removed from fantasy relevance -- he was an All-Star closer with San Diego and Cleveland from 2017-19 -- but he didn't earn a single save during his time with Colorado. The 33-year-old can still get lefties out (.143/.276/.204 vs. LHH this season) and he provides Atlanta with a second southpaw in the bullpen behind A.J. Minter.

  • Rockies' Brad Hand: Grabs second win

    Hand (2-1) earned the win in Wednesday's 4-3 win over Pittsburgh, striking out two over 1.2 perfect innings. Hand got the Rockies out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the seventh inning, inducing a double play off the bat of Rodolfo Castro. The lefty then set the Pirates down in order in the eighth after the Rockies took the lead in the top half of the frame. The 33-year-old has pitched well of late, posting three consecutive scoreless appearances. His ERA is down to 3.14 with a 1.26 WHIP and 20:6 K:BB through 14.1 innings. Hand is still behind Pierce Johnson and Daniel Bard in the closer pecking order, though he's continued to pitch in high-leverage situations for Colorado.

  • Rockies' Brad Hand: Solid start to season

    Hand allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning Sunday against the Mariners. Hand entered the game with runners at first and second in the bottom of the sixth inning and allowed the game-winning hit to the first batter he faced. While he had a poor outcome Sunday, Hand has pitched well to start the season as he has been charged with only one earned run across 5.2 innings while also maintaining 9:4 K:BB. His control leaves room for improvement, but he has still been one of the most reliable high-leverage relievers for Colorado early on.

  • Rockies' Brad Hand: Pitches in setup role

    Hand allowed one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one across one inning Friday against the Padres. Hand made his Rockies debut and entered the game in the eighth inning with a four-run lead. He allowed the first two batters he faced to reach base, but he then retired the next three hitters to mitigate the damage. With Daniel Bard (not injury related) sidelined, saves are up for grabs in Colorado, though Pierce Johnson converted the opportunity Friday and appears to be getting the first chance to close.

  • Rockies' Brad Hand: Working on cutter

    Hand is planning to introduce a cutter to his arsenal this season, Jack Magruder of reports. Hand signed with the Rockies on Saturday and should immediately fill a high-leverage role out of the bullpen. He's relied on a combination of his fastball and slider for the last several seasons, though he's now prepared to add a third pitch to that mix. Hand reportedly worked on the cutter in bullpen sessions during the 2022 campaign, but he did not throw any in game action.

  • Rockies' Brad Hand: Lands with Rockies

    The Rockies signed Hand to a one-year, $2 million contract Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Hand, coming off a 45-inning, 2.80-ERA campaign with the Phillies, finally has a home for the 2023 season. The Rockies don't project to win many games, but the left-hander could have some opportunities for holds and/or saves. It's unclear how built-up Hand is, or whether he'll be ready for Opening Day. The contract includes a $7 million club option for 2024.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Ready for playoffs

    Hand (elbow) was activated from the 15-day injured list Friday and is on the Phillies' roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Cardinals, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The veteran left-hander landed on the shelf with elbow tendinitis Sept. 22, but he's back with the team for the wild-card round. Hand finished the regular season with 13 holds, five saves and a 2.80 ERA over 45 innings.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Aiming for playoffs return

    Hand (elbow) thew a 25-pitch bullpen session Monday and is scheduled to face live hitters Wednesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. It is beginning to look more and more like Hand will rejoin the Phillies for their wild-card series, assuming they maintain their position in the standings. Hand hasn't pitched since Sept. 20, when he gave up three earned runs over just one-third of an inning against Toronto.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Out with elbow issue

    Hand was placed on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to Sept. 22, with left elbow tendinitis. Hand hasn't pitched since he surrendered four runs (three earned) over one-third of an inning Sept. 20 versus Toronto, and he'll now be unavailable for the next couple weeks. The veteran left-hander will miss the rest of the regular season but will be eligible to return early in the playoffs, should the Phillies qualify.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Blows save, wins

    Hand (3-1) picked up the victory Tuesday after blowing the save, allowing two unearned runs on two hits while striking out one in the ninth inning of a 7-6 win over Cincinnati. After Hand retired the first batter of the ninth, Nick Senzel reached after Edmundo Sosa committed a throwing error. Hand then allowed a single and retired a batter before TJ Friedl tripled home both runners to give Cincinnati the lead. It was Hand's first save opportunity since July 8. He's given up just one earned run in his last 11.2 innings but has a concerning 6:7 K:BB in that span. David Robertson and Seranthony Dominguez (triceps) have received the most save chances since the trade deadline, but Hand and Andrew Bellatti have also been given an opportunity.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Tosses scoreless inning Sunday

    Hand allowed a hit and no walks while striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning during Sunday's loss to the Mets. Hand picked up a save July 8 and recorded a hold July 15 but has been used mainly in lower-leverage situations recently. He also got increased competition for closing duties since the Phillies acquired David Robertson ahead of the trade deadline. Although Hand hasn't been used in save situations recently, he's been effective since the All-Star break, posting a 1.59 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 5.2 innings over six appearances to begin the second half of the year.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Nails down third save

    Hand struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his third save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Cardinals. Seranthony Dominguez worked the eighth inning against the heart of the St. Louis order, while Hand got the ninth against the Cards' 7-8-9 hitters. Since Corey Knebel was removed from the closer role in mid-June, Hand and Dominguez have two saves each, and they'll likely continue to share the job as long as both of them remain effective.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Secures second save

    Hand picked up his second save of the year in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals, striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning while allowing one hit and one walk. The Phillies announced their intention to drop Corey Knebel from the closer role in favor of a committee Wednesday, and it's Hand who got the first opportunity in the new arrangement. Despite his 1.86 ERA, he's been outpitched by Seranthony Dominguez this year judging by the pair's underlying numbers, but Hand nevertheless got the ninth inning here while Dominguez got the eighth. It's worth noting that Dominguez faced the heart of the order while Hand came in to handle the Nats' 7-8-9 hitters, so their respective usage in this game doesn't guarantee that it will be Hand who gets the next save chance. The veteran lefty was also somewhat shaky Friday, allowing the tying run to reach base with one out before shutting the door on the 5-3 win.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Part of closer committee

    Hand is expected to be part of a closer committee for the foreseeable future after interim manager Rob Thomson said Wednesday that Corey Knebel has been removed from the ninth-inning role, Todd Zolecki of reports. The closing change comes after Knebel blew his fourth save of the season in Tuesday's 11-9 loss to the Marlins while walking two batters and allowing three unearned runs. Thomson didn't explicitly say which relievers would be part of the closing committee while Knebel is used in lower-leverage spots, but Hand and Seranthony Dominguez look to be the top two candidates to pick up saves. Hand, who has nabbed only one save in 2022 but recorded no fewer than 16 saves in any of the past five seasons, has been dependable in a setup role thus far for Philadelphia, accruing a 1.96 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 20:10 K:BB in 18.1 innings.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Notches save against Mets

    Hand picked up his first save of the season in Monday's 5-4 win over the Mets, striking out two batters in a perfect ninth inning. The veteran southpaw was called in to face the team he ended his 2021 campaign with after a five-run rally by the Phillies in the bottom of the eighth, and Hand got the job done in style. Corey Knebel (illness) wasn't available Monday, but he isn't expected to be sidelined for long, so Hand's window for save chances is likely a short one. He appears to Joe Girardi's top option behind Knebel, however, not a surprising development considering Hand's 127 career saves.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Velocity down in spring games

    Hand has sat around 90 to 91 mph with his fastball this spring, below his average of 93 mph last season, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. It's possible this is nothing to worry about, as pitchers are frequently below their usual velocity numbers in spring, due either to their lack of adrenaline in exhibition contests or to the fact that they're still building up to full strength. This year's shortened spring training could make that an even more common problem. Still, the Phillies would certainly prefer to see Hand at his usual velocity as soon as possible. His chances of overtaking Corey Knebel on the closer depth chart would take a hit if he's unable to get back to the 93 mph range.

  • Phillies' Brad Hand: Reaches deal with Phils

    Hand agreed Monday with the Phillies on a one-year, $6 million contract, Jeff Passan of reports. One of the top lefty relievers who was available on the open market, Hand ultimately landed with the fourth different NL East team of his career after stops with the Marlins, Mets and Nationals. With 121 career saves on his ledger, Hand immediately becomes the most accomplished reliever in the bullpen, but because he'll be making $4 million less than fellow free-agent pickup Corey Knebel, the former could be second in line for saves. Phillies manager Joe Girardi could also choose to use the two relievers as part of a loose closer committee, with the southpaw Hand and right-handed Knebel both representing appealing options against opposite-handed hitters. While the transaction makes handicapping the Phillies' closer situation a more difficult endeavor, the offseason additions of Hand and Knebel (and longtime Mets setup man Jeurys Familia) undoubtedly strengthen the bullpen, which has been a major trouble spot for the team in recent years.

  • Mets' Brad Hand: Picks up hold in Mets debut

    Hand gave up two hits in a scoreless two-thirds of an inning to record his first hold of the season during an 11-9 win over the Nationals in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. Facing the team he started the year with, Hand wasn't exactly effective when he relieved Miguel Castro in the sixth inning and allowed two inherited runners to score, but he was able to coax an inning-ending double play out of Ryan Zimmerman before he took any damage to his own ERA. Including his brief stint with the Blue Jays between his Nats and Mets tenures, Hand has an 8.40 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 11:9 K:BB through 15 innings since the All-Star break, and he's unlikely to see much high-leverage work with New York.
