  • 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: Picks up fourth save

    Hand pitched a perfect ninth innings with no strikeouts to earn the save in a 2-0 win over the Cardinals on Friday. Hand only needed eight pitches to retire the side and earn his fourth save of the campaign. The 32-year-old veteran arm has now tallied three saves since Corey Knebel was pulled out of the closer role due to control issues in mid-June. Hand finds himself in a closer committee with Seranthony Dominguez, who earned the save in Thursday's game.

  • 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 MLB.com 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 ESPN.com 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.

  • Mets' Brad Hand: Claimed by Mets

    Hand was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Hand was acquired by the Blue Jays in a trade with the Nationals at the deadline but spent barely over a month with the team before being designated for assignment. The veteran lefty owns a mediocre 4.21 ERA on the season, including a 7.27 mark across 11 appearances after moving to Toronto, but he was very effective over the previous five seasons, posting a 2.70 ERA over that stretch. The current version of Hand shouldn't be pitching in high-leverage situations, but there's still potential here for him to serve as one of Edwin Diaz's top deputies if the Mets can get him back on track.

  • Blue Jays' Brad Hand: Designated for assignment

    Hand was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports. Hand was eligible to return from the bereavement list, but the Blue Jays elected not to clear a spot for him on the active roster. It's quite the fall from grace for the veteran lefty, who has 126 saves to his name, including 21 this season. All of his saves this year came prior to being traded from Washington to Toronto. Following the move to the Blue Jays, Hand allowed 10 runs (seven earned) in 8.2 innings while striking out just five batters, though his past success would suggest he still has a good chance of being claimed off waivers.

  • Blue Jays' Brad Hand: Headed to bereavement list

    Hand will placed on the bereavement list Friday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports. Hand's grandfather passed away, so he will be away from the team for between three and seven days. He's struggled to a 5.63 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across eight innings since being acquired by the Blue Jays.

  • Blue Jays' Brad Hand: Makes mess in extra-inning loss

    Hand (5-6) allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and struck out one in one inning, taking the loss Monday versus Cleveland. The southpaw has now allowed four runs (two earned) in two innings since he was traded from Washington to Toronto at the trade deadline. Hand hasn't worked very effectively since the start of July, yielding 12 runs (nine earned) in his last 10 innings. Overall, he has a 3.83 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 43:18 K:BB through 44.2 innings overall. It's unclear if he can right the ship well enough to earn a late-inning role with his new team.

  • Blue Jays' Brad Hand: Pitches eighth inning

    Hand allowed one unearned run on two hits and no walks in one inning during Friday's win over the Royals. Hand made his team debut with the Blue Jays holding a four-run lead Friday, and he gave up a pair of singles to lead off the eighth inning. However, a throwing error allowed Nicky Lopez to score with no outs in the inning before the southpaw retired the next three batters he faced. Although Hand was relatively effective against Kansas City, he currently appears to be the setup man behind right-hander Jordan Romano.

  • Blue Jays' Brad Hand: Traded to Blue Jays

    Hand was traded from the Nationals to the Blue Jays in exchange for catcher Riley Adams on Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Hand converted 21 of his 26 save opportunities to begin the year, with three of those blown saves coming in his last six appearances, and he's recorded a 3.59 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 42.2 innings this season. The Blue Jays have shuffled through several closers this year, and while a change of scenery could help the southpaw turn things around, there's no guarantee he will displace Jordan Romano in the ninth-inning role, particularly given Hand's 7.88 ERA in July.

  • Nationals' Brad Hand: Secures 21st save

    Hand had a strikeout and didn't allow a hit or walk during a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Phillies. A throwing error put a runner on second base to start the frame, but Hand quickly retired the next three batters on only seven pitches to break a streak of two straight blown saves. The veteran lefty entered Tuesday's contest with seven earned runs allowed in five appearances since the All-Star break, so it was a welcome sight to see him deliver a clean ninth inning. He's 21-for-26 in save opportunities this season and has a 3.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 42:18 K:BB across 42.2 innings.

  • Nationals' Brad Hand: Dealt third straight loss

    Hand (5-5) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out the only batter he retired as he took the loss versus Philadelphia on Monday. Monday marked Hand's third straight loss and second consecutive blown save. The southpaw allowed a double to Jean Segura and walked Bryce Harper before Andrew McCutchen hit a walkoff home run. Hand is now 20-for-25 in save chances with a 3.67 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 41:18 K:BB through 41.2 innings. If his struggles continue much longer, Daniel Hudson could begin to work his way into a share of the closer role. Hudson allowed two hits in a scoreless inning to earn his 15th hold Monday before Hand's meltdown.

  • Nationals' Brad Hand: Charged with another loss

    Hand (5-4) allowed two runs on one hit and one walk in a third of an inning to take the loss against the Orioles on Sunday. Hand entered Sunday's game in the bottom of the ninth inning to preserve a one-run lead, but he hit Maikel Franco on a two-strike count to lead off the frame before giving up two runs as he failed to convert on his save chance. The southpaw earned a win and picked up a save in his first two outings after the All-Star break, but he's allowed four runs (three earned) in 2.1 innings across his last two appearances, and he's been charged with back-to-back losses.

  • Nationals' Brad Hand: Takes loss Wednesday

    Hand (5-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk while striking out none across two innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Marlins. Hand was called upon to to keep the game tied at 1-1 in the ninth inning, and he did so without allowing a baserunner. However, he ran into trouble in the 10th, walking a batter with one out before allowing a double and subsequent sacrifice fly. Though his trouble originated with the inning-opening runner in extras, Hand has now allowed three earned runs across the 7.1 innings covering his last six appearances while also being tagged with a blown save in that span. Even so, he has a 2.63 ERA with a 40:16 K:BB across 41 innings on the season.

  • Nationals' Brad Hand: Picks up another save

    Hand recorded the save Tuesday against the Marlins after tossing a scoreless ninth inning, striking out one. Hand closed the door on a potential comeback attempt by the Marlins with a strong outing, as he needed just 14 pitches (nine strikes) to get the job done in the top of the ninth. The southpaw has been one of the best late-inning relievers in all of baseball, going 20-for-23 in save chances. He also owns a 2.54 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and a 9.2 K/9 through 39 innings (37 appearances) on the season.
