Brad Hand SP MIA 2 Months
Brad Hand allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings of a no-decision against the Phillies on Wednesday.
Hand allowed seven hits and a walk, striking out just three. It was just his second career start, and the left-hander now owns a 3.05 ERA over 20 2/3 innings. The 23-year-old may be in contention for a rotation spot next season after this year's showing.

Brad Hand was touched up for four runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.
Making his first start in the majors this season, Hand had the lead until he gave up a three-run homer to Lucas Duda in his final inning of work. He struck out four and walked two in the loss. Hand may keep a rotation spot the rest of the way, but he's not worth grabbing in most fantasy leagues.

Marlins optioned LHP Brad Hand, RHPs Evan Reed, Alex Sanabia and OF Kyle Jensen to Triple-A New Orleans; RHP Sam Dyson, LHP Edgar Olmos and OF Marcell Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville.
Hand had an outside shot at a rotation spot this spring, but he allowed four runs and walked five over his first three innings to earn a ticket to minor league camp. He could get a chance with the big club at some point this season.

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.
