Toronto Blue Jays address bullpen issues by acquiring closer Brad Hand from Washington Nationals

The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired three-time All-Star closer Brad Hand from the Washington Nationals for minor league catcher Riley Adams, the teams announced Thursday.

Hand is 5-5 with a 3.59 ERA and 21 saves this season.

Hand signed a one-year, $10.5 million contract with the Nats this past offseason. He was coming off another solid season as the closer for the Cleveland Indians in 2020, leading the major leagues with 16 saves, but was a victim of the team’s salary purge heading into 2021.

The Blue Jays have had a multitude of injuries in their bullpen, beginning with the team losing Kirby Yates to Tommy John surgery to start the season.

Keeping an eye on the Nats-Phils. I half expect Scherzer to be pulled mid inning, or even mid batter if a trade goes down. At this point he’s pitched 3 scoreless innings and leads 1-0.

Aloha, Mr Hand.
