San Diego Padres relief pitcher Brad Hand delivers during the ninth inning of a baseball game against the Colorado Rockies in San Diego, Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017.
The agreement covers Hand's final two years of arbitration eligibility and includes a fourth-year team option, according to the report. At this point, the specifics on the deal haven't been announced, but Rosenthal stated that the monetary figures would be within the $18-to-20-million range.
Early in 2016 Hand was designated for assignment by the Marlins and picked up by the Padres in a deal that flew under most radars. The lefty maintained a pristine 2.16 ERA, 2.3 BB/9 and 11.8 SO/9 through 79 1/3 innings, padding his efforts with 21 saves after transitioning into the closer role halfway through the year.
