Marlins swap Brad Penny for Brad Hand in rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:32 pm ET) The Marlins will swap Brad Penny into the rotation in place of Brad Hand Tuesday against the Mets, the team announced Saturday.

Penny made two starts for the Marlins before he was moved to the bullpen. He has a 5.40 ERA in 13 1/3 innings overall, while Hand has dropped his last four decisions while his ERA has risen to 4.71 overall. 


Brad Hand can't escape fifth inning in loss Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Marlins pitcher Brad Hand was stuck with a loss Sunday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings and striking out three in his team's 7-4 defeat against the Rockies.

Hand (2-6) hasn't earned a win since pitching 7 1/3 scoreless innings on July 25. He surrendered three runs on two first-inning home runs before walking the final batter he faced in the fifth with the bases loaded. Hand owns a 4.71 ERA and 51:35 K:BB ratio in 84 innings. He's scheduled to face the Braves Saturday.


Two Brads left hanging in Florida for Miami rotation spot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) The return to the rotation of Henderson Alvarez for the Marlins means that rookie Brad Hand or veteran Brad Penny will be out. The decision as to which Brad will be dispatched to the bullpen has yet to be made.

Off-days will allow Mike Redmond to stall and use both in relief for a while.

"Probably just a feel thing I guess," Redmond told the Miami Herald when asked about his potential choice. "Gives us a couple days to think about it. I was hoping for one of them to really make a clear and easy decision. So do we go with a guy that has experience, or a young guy?"

Hand has performed bettery, though Penny has had just two starts. The latter yielded four runs in five innings in the second of those two outings while Hand has pitched will over his last six starts aside from a clunker on Aug. 10.


Brad Hand can't pick up a win Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Marlins pitcher Brad Hand couldn't pick up a win Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Hand allowed three runs on five hits over seven innings. He struck out three and walked two. Home runs proved to be an issue for Hand. Cliff Pennington hit a solo shot in the first inning. That was followed up by a two-run shot by Aaron Hill just three batters later. 

With the loss, Hand dropped to 2-5. He'll take on the Rockies in his next start.


One batter gives Brad Hand plenty of problems in loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco proved to be a nuisance for Marlins starting pitcher Brad Hand during a 7-2 loss Sunday at Cincinnati. The left-handed hurler allowed seven runs on five hits and three walks, while striking out two in 4 2/3 innings.

Hand (2-4) went into the bottom of the first inning with a 1-0 lead before Mesoraco hit a two-out, two-run homer.

Hand would then settle down and not allow another run until the fifth inning, but that's when the wheels came off. Hand gave Cincinnati a 3-2 lead when he walked Todd Frazier with the bases loaded. Hand was then chased from the game one batter later as Mesoraco crushed his fourth career grand slam.

Sunday was the first time in eight starts since rejoining the rotation Hand allowed more than three earned runs. It was also the first time in eight starts he allowed a home run. 

He is expected to make his next start Friday against the Diamondbacks.


Brad Hand allows two runs in no-decision vs. Pirates


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Marlins pitcher Brad Hand didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on six hits and one walk in 6 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 6-3 win over the Pirates.

Hand delivered his fourth straight quality start and was on the hook for the loss before the offense bailed him out late in the game. He scattered hits throughout the start but gave up runs in the third and seventh innings. Hand owns a 4.03 ERA and 42:27 K:BB ratio in 67 innings, which is a nice turnaround after owning a 6.38 ERA upon his return in July. He's slated to take on the Reds Sunday.


Brad Hand takes tough-luck loss vs. Nationals


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Marlins pitcher Brad Hand could not extend his winning streak to three starts Wednesday, as the offense failed to get him much help in a 4-3 loss to the Nationals.

Hand allowed just one run through his first seven innings of work, though he had trouble in the eighth inning before he was lifted. Hand eventually allowed three runs on five hits and a pair of walks, while striking out two batters in the loss.

Hand has finished seven innings while tossing a quality start in each of his last three starts, and is 2-1 in that stretch. He is 2-3 with a 4.15 ERA overall on the season, with his next start set for Tuesday in Pittsburgh. 


Brad Hand blanks Astros for second straight win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Brad Hand continued to pitch well Friday night against the Astros in Houston, limiting hitters to three hits in 7 1/3 scoreless innings to improve to 2-2 on the year. The right-hander struck out four and walked two in 97 pitches, 66 for strikes.

Hand has won back-to-back starts since returning from the All-Star break. He owns a 4.19 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP over 53 2/3 innings of work this season. His next start will come Wednesday at home against Washington.

Brad Hand finally picks up first win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Brad Hand kept the damage to a minimum over seven innings Sunday vs. San Francisco on his way to his first win of the season. The left-handed hurler allowed two runs on six hits and one walk, while striking out four over seven innings in a 3-2 win.

Hand (1-2) kept the Giants scoreless for the first two innings before Buster Posey tied the game at 2 with a two-run double in the third inning. Hand, however, would bounce back to strike out the final two batters in the inning to end the threat.

He would allow just a Hunter Pence single in the fifth inning and Posey walk in the sixth inning the rest of the afternoon. Hand is expected to be back on the hill Friday at Houston.


Brad Hand able to shake off shin injury to start Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) The Marlins announced their rotation plans for their three-game series against the Giants, which starts Friday.

Brad Hand leaves start due to shin injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Brad Hand had to leave Sunday's game against the Mets after just four innings due to a bruised right shin

The left-handed hurler left with Miami trailing 3-1. He gave up a sac fly to Chris Young in the second inning before New York took a two-run lead in the fourth inning on an RBI single from opposing pitcher Jacob deGrom and an RBI double from outfielder Curtis Granderson.

Hand was charged with three runs on six hits and two walks, while striking out one. Hand's next start is not yet known since the Marlins have not announced their post-All-Star-break rotation plans.


Brad Hand pitches well in no-decision Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Marlins pitcher Brad Hand didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up just an unearned run on eight hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings and striking out two in his team's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Hand saw the leadoff batter of the fifth inning reach base on an error, and that runner came home to score on a single before the Diamondbacks recorded a double play that would have otherwise ended the inning scoreless. Hand owns a 5.09 ERA and 27:19 K:BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Sunday.


Brad Hand runs into trouble late in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Marlins pitcher Brad Hand tossed the ball well for much of his start against the Phillies Thursday, but ran out of gas in a 5-4 loss.

Making his first appearance since May 23, Hand tossed a season-high 99 pitches. He cruised through five shutout innings to open the start, but was chased without recording an out as he allowed three straight runners to reach base to open the sixth.  

Hand was charged with three runs on seven hits and a walk in five innings of work. He struck out five batters as the offense eventually bailed him out in a no-decision.

Hand lowered his ERA slightly to 6.21 Thursday, while he remains 0-1 in 17 appearances -- three starts. Hand's next turn in the rotation is set to come Tuesday in Arizona, though it is not clear if he will make that start. 


Brad Hand returns from DL for Thursday start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) The Marlins reinstated pitcher Brad Hand from the disabled list Tuesday, after his stint on the DL lasted more than a month.

Hand will start Thursday's game against the Phillies, after he posted a 2.38 in six minor-league rehab starts. He had a 6.38 ERA in 24 innings in the majors prior to the injury. Hand replaces Tom Koehler on the active roster, after Koehler was placed on the paternity leave list.

Kevin Slowey, Brad Hand among options to start Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Marlins pitchers Kevin Slowey and Brad Hand are two options to make Wednesday's start against the Dodgers after Jose Fernandez was placed on the disabled list, FOX Sports reports.

The Marlins could also opt to bring a minor-leaguer up to make Wednesday's start. Whoever makes the start could be auditioning for a long-term spot in the rotation if Fernandez's elbow injury is ruled to be serious.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Marlins manager Mike Redmond confirmed Wednesday pitcher Kevin Slowey will replace Brad Hand in the team's rotation starting Sunday against the Mariners. Hand will be moved back to the bullpen.

Kevin Slowey to replace Brad Hand in Marlins' rotation?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) It appears the Marlins will start pitcher Kevin Slowey on Sunday against the Mariners, moving Brad Hand back to the bullpen after two ineffective starts, per MLB.com. Although, there has been no official word from the team yet.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) Marlins pitcher Brad Hand only made it through three innings Monday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out two in his team's 9-2 loss to the Nationals.

Hand (0-1) sat in the strike zone throughout the start, allowing the Nationals to get multiple hits in each inning of work. He owns a 6.35 ERA and 9:6 K:BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings over four appearances (two starts).

Brad Hand falters late in first start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Brad Hand pitched well for three innings before running out of steam in his spot start Wednesday against the Nationals.

Hand opened the outing, his first start of the season, with three shutout innings. Unfortunately, that was about all he had in him, as he ran into trouble in the fourth. Hand was tagged for a three-run home run by Bryce Harper that went far into the third deck in right field, ending his night.

Hand was ultimately charged with three runs on four hits and a pair of walks in 3 1/3 innings. Hand made his first two appearances of the season out of the bullpen, so it wasn't a surprise to see him tire in a start. He will try to get over the hump in his next start, set for Monday against the Nationals.


Jacob Turner (shoulder) out, Brad Hand in for Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Marlins pitcher Jacob Turner will have his turn in the rotation skipped at least once, after he suffered a shoulder strain during batting practice Tuesday. Turner has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday against the Nationals, with Brad Hand set to replace him, according to the Miami Herald.

The extent of the injury is not yet known, nor is it known exactly how he suffered it. Turner's next turn in the rotation is set for the following Monday against the Nationals, but it is known whether he will be expected to make it. 


Brad Hand earns long, unconventional save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Marlins reliever Brad Hand pitched well out of the bullpen in his second appearance of the season Friday, as he earned a three-inning save in an 8-2 win over the Padres.

Hand entered the game in relief of starter Tom Koehler, who beat him out for the final rotation spot in the spring. Hand pitched three hitless innings, walking three batters and striking out two while throwing 20 of 39 pitches for strikes.

Hand is probably next in line for a starting opportunity if the need arises for the Marlins. For now, he will continue pitching out of the bullpen, where he has tossed five scoreless innings to open the season. 


Tom Koehler set in rotation; Brad Hand in bullpen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The fifth spot in the Marlins rotation has been handed to right-hander Tom Koehler, but left-hander Brad Hand should get a big hand as well. He made the team as a reliever.

Koehler earned the spot by yielding just three earned runs in 18 innings this spring. Hand clinched one Thursday by hurling four shutout innings against St. Louis. He surrendered just two hits and one walk while striking out two.
