Brad Hand RP MIA 2 Days
Brad Hand fanned five in three scoreless innings Monday in the Marlins' 11-1 drubbing of the Mets.
Hand entered camp seemingly fourth in line for the fifth spot in the Marlins' rotation, but since he's throwing well and he's out of options, his chances of a roster spot have improved considerably. He's allowed one run and amassed a 9/2 K/BB ratio in seven innings.

Brad Hand allowed one run and two hits in two innings Sunday in his start versus the Nationals.
The Hand-Fister matchup played to a draw, with Brad and Doug both pitching two innings of one-run ball. Hand struck out two and walked none. He hasn't been much of a factor in Miami since making 12 starts as a 21-year-old in 2011, but he's not without some potential. Since he's now out of options, the Marlins might choose to carry him as a reliever.

Brad Hand walked four and was charged with two runs while getting just two outs Saturday against the Cardinals.
Hand was decent as a 21-year-old rookie for the Marlins in 2011, posting a 4.20 ERA in 12 starts, but he made just one major league start in a 2012 season spent mostly in Triple-A and he's turned into an afterthought now. He'll probably be sent to minor league camp pretty early in the spring.
