 Cleveland Indians closer Brad Hand threw a scoreless inning in an 11-7 Cactus League win over the Giants on Monday. Hand struck out one and walked one.

Notes 
 The only thing that would hurt Hand's value this year is if the Indians trade him away.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The Reds have messed around with Iglesias in the past as far as keeping him in the closer's role, but all signs point to him staying there this year. He's a nice value pick.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Hand didn't have a bad year by any means, but there were two major areas of decline. The first was a cratering of his ground ball rate, and the second was that batters simply hit his fastball much, much better than in previous years. Hand is a reliever, which means volatility, and his strikeout rate remains well above-average. But with just a club option left on his deal, he could be a candidate to be dealt if the Indians struggle out of the gate.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Iglesias walked fewer and struck out more batters than ever, winding up with 34 saves last year. And yet it always felt like he was on the precipice of losing his job as the closer, particularly in light of his whopping 12 losses. Iglesias is still under control for two more seasons and, so long as he can continue to pitch relatively effectively, should be able to hold down the ninth-inning job in 2020. But there should be at least some trepidation among fantasy owners in light of his ups and downs last year.
