RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Hand earned a September call-up, after sporting a 3.21 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 17 minor league starts. He saved his best work for last, spinning 6.1 innings of two-run ball for the Marlins in his final outing of the season. Without a dominating arsenal of pitches, Hand simply must improve his control (47 walks in 89.2 minor league innings) to have success at the major league level. Though the Marlins will likely keep Hand stretched out as a starter to begin the year in 2014, his best path to time in Miami this season will likely be in the bullpen.

2013

Hand spent the majority of his season at the Triple-A level, making just one start in the big leagues. Though he typically works in the low-90s with his fastball, Hand possesses solid strikeout ability (8.5 K/9 over 148.1 minor league innings). Still, the 23-year-old has failed to harness his control, posting a brutal 4.6 BB/9 in the minors in 2012 after he had similar control issues during a 12-start stint with the big club in 2011. Hand appears to have some work to do refining his control before Miami will give the former second-round pick another crack at the rotation.

2012

Injuries to the big-league rotation, and a woeful lack of pitching depth in the Marlins system, forced the club to bring Hand up ahead of schedule and he posted predictably shaky numbers. His Double-A numbers don't really look like those of a top prospect either, as his strikeout rate took a steep drop, while his walk and home-run rates both rose. While he might enter spring training with a theoretical shot at a 25-man roster spot, expect Miami to keep him in the minors all of 2012.

2011

Hand improved his control while maintaining his K/9IP rate as a 20-year-old at High-A, and as a result put himself firmly in the Marlins' future plans. He projects to have three solid pitches although none of them are exceptional, which makes him a mid-rotation starter at best in the majors, but given the way the organization's starting pitching depth has been gutted the last couple of seasons they'll take what they can get. Assuming he doesn't stumble against Double-A competition this year, Hand could get his first taste of the big leagues in 2012.
