2. Brad Hand, San Diego Reliever
Another closer the Indians probably are already looking long and hard at is Padres closer Brad Hand. Again it could be a move not only for this year, but next as he’s signed up till the 2021 season.
This year in San Diego he’s got a 3.05 ERA in 41 1/3 innings pitched this season. He registered a career-low 2.16 ERA and was an All-Star in 2017, and with the Indians would make a very interesting piece to the pen.
Hand has 45 saves over the last two years for a Padres team that isn’t close to contending in the National League West.
