RP - CLE
Expert NoteView More Notes
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.
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.
