According to Zack Meisel of the Sports Department, in order to show what this offseason will be like, the Cleveland Indians replaced elite Brad Hand (Brad Hand) in a complete abstention on Thursday. Hand) in the first place.
The potential benefit is that he can save $1 million and buy out his $10 million club option.
This will be a shocking move in any year except 2020. Major League Baseball (MLB) records show that due to the pandemic, this year’s games lost between $2.83 billion and $3 billion. The expectation for entering this free agency period is that due to financial losses, some or most teams will sit down and carry their wallets. Every organization must make difficult decisions and lay off staff, and the game requires fans to return to the stands to return to the way it was before the COVID production.
An Indian, an inexpensive team, was forced to give up due to high costs. Regarding his $1
Hand is 30 years old and will become a free agent after 2021. He is a left-hander with an elite skater. He led the Grand Slam in 2020, with a 2.05 ERA, 29 strikeouts and four moves to become 16 of 16 shots.
Since 2017, Hand has 103 saves, 2.61 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 93 more strikeouts than three.
In the past five seasons, the left-hander has hit a .150 field goal percentage and has a 42% batting percentage in a confrontation with Hand.
Yes, man, Phillies should be interested in this. Following free agent Liam Hendriks (Liam Hendriks), the guard immediately became the best or second best release agent. In the next few days, everything that happens with Hand will tell us more about how the team is approaching the offseason and how positive they will become.
The hand is abstaining. The exemption order is inverted. The Phillies rank 13th, but if the Indians’ cost-cutting move symbolizes the mid-market team’s thinking, Hand may pass the beginning of the list unclaimed.
For Indians, the ideal situation is for an interested team to claim a “hand” and make a deal, so Cleveland gets a small amount of value. The worst-case scenario is to say goodbye to one of the best left-handers in baseball and only money is left. That is 2020.
