Padres' Brad Hand: Will make 25-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Andy Green said that Hand will make the Opening Day roster as a member of the Padres' bullpen.

Hand had his best season as a professional last season in San Diego (2.92 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 21 holds), something that many pitchers experience when becoming a Padre. It was more than just ballpark factor that contributed to his newfound success, as his strikeout rate (11.2) and FIP (3.12) experienced tremendous growth while the rest of his metrics remained relatively constant. The biggest change Hand made last season was relying on his curveball more than he has in year's past. He threw his bender 31.4 percent of the time last season compared to 15.1 percent the year prior. Hand will look to repeat his 2016 success and should be a decent source of holds in either a seventh or eighth inning role this year.

Padres' Brad Hand: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hand agreed to a one-year deal with the Padres on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

The terms of the agreement were not made public. Hand officially transferred to a relief role last season and was quite successful, posting a 2.92 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 111:36 K:BB in 89.1 innings out of the bullpen. He should continue to pitch in high-leverage spots this season, but Brandon Maurer figures to open the year as the team's closer, so saves won't be readily available.

Padres' Brad Hand: Continues walking batters
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hand has allowed seven earned runs across 9.2 innings in the month of June, bringing his ERA up to 3.89 for the season.

Hand has continued to strike out plenty of batters this season, as he has an 11.4 K/9, but his struggles with control remain an issue. His walk rate is currently 13.5 percent, contributing to an opponent on-base percentage of .339. However, Hand's endurance has been valuable to the Padres, as he frequently throws two or more innings out of the bullpen.

Padres' Brad Hand: Strikes out three in scoreless inning
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hand struck out three and walked two in a scoreless inning, against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Hand's production has been variable this season, as he's given up earned runs in six of his 16 appearances. The southpaw strikes batters out, as he's collected 18 strikeouts over 14.1 innings, but he still allows too many hits and walks, leading to a 1.74 WHIP. The 26-year-old will look to improve upon his peripherals in his mid-to-late-inning role as the 2016 season continues.

Marlins' Brad Hand: Claimed by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hand was claimed off waivers by the Padres on Friday, Dennis Lin of the Union-Tribune reports.

Hand was DFA'd by the Marlins earlier in the week and will now join the Padres as a left-handed specialist out of the bullpen. His experience at the major league level could bump lefties such as Ryan Buchter or Robbie Erlin back down to the minors. Hand struck out 29 of the 110 lefties he faced in 2015 while allowing a .206 batting average against.
