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.

Brad Hand throws scoreless inning

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.

Fantasy Impact

Hand has allowed just one run over five innings this spring. The veteran closer had a rough second half last season but the team believes he will bounce back in 2020. Hand is a top-10 fantasy reliever this year.
