Bradley Richard Hand (born March 20, 1990) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut with the Miami Marlins in 2011.


Florida / Miami Marlins

Hand is a 2008 graduate of Chaska High School in Chaska, Minnesota. He was selected by the Marlins in the second round of the 2008 MLB Draft.

Hand was called up to the majors for the first time on June 6, 2011.[1] He made his debut the next day against the Atlanta Braves. In his debut, Hand became the second starter since 1946 to throw at least 6 innings and allow one hit or less to lose the game.[2] Hand got his first big league win on July 8, 2011 against the Houston Astros, throwing seven, two-hit shutout innings.

On August 3, Hand was called up for a doubleheader game against the Washington Nationals so as not to disrupt the starting rotation. He pitched 323 innings, giving up seven runs on nine hits and walking six. He ended up taking the loss. The next day, he was sent back down to Triple A New Orleans. He finished the season with the Zephyrs going 11–7 with a 4.00 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, in 14813 innings pitched, with 75 walks, 141 strikeouts in 27 games started. In 2013, he pitched for the rookie and triple A teams, combining for a 3–6 record, a 3.21 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, 92 strikeouts, and 47 walks in 8923 innings. He made the 25 man roster for the Marlins in 2014 as a long reliever/spot starter.

San Diego Padres

Hand was claimed off waivers by the San Diego Padres on April 8, 2016.
