Toronto Hand missed again. Washington signed $10.5 million a year.
Brad Hand, one of the biggest words for the 2021 Stove League bullpen FA, signed with Washington for $10.5 million a year.
John Hayman of MLB Network said on Saturday that Hand had agreed to a one-year contract with Washington. ESPN’s Jeff bankruptcy added an annual salary of $10.5 million. It was said that the contract did not include additional options or incentives 메이저사이트
Brad Hand has established himself as one of the league’s best bullpen pitchers in the past five seasons. Hand, who burst his potential in San Diego in the 2016 season, was traded to Cleveland in the middle of the 2018 season, and had a 2.78 ERA in 107 innings at Cleveland. While striking out 34.8 percent, the walk rate was only 7.9 percent.
Despite his steady performance in Cleveland, Brad Hand earned his FA status after the Cleveland club gave up a $10 million option. Instead, the company paid $1 million in buyout.
Brad Hand showed a slight drop in average ball speed last season, but he is still considered to be able to be used as a high-quality bullpen pitcher or a closer. Hand made 16 saves in the 2020 season to become the top American League relief pitcher. Furthermore, the Washington bullpen has been under constant anxiety in recent years.
Several teams, including Toronto, the Dodgers, and the Angels, showed interest in recruiting Brad Hand, but Washington became the final winner.
