Had to have a little fun with the headline on this one
Cleveland is acquiring Brad Hand from San Diego, per The Athletic. Here's a link to the MLB Trade Rumors post, which will be updated as details emerge. Hand, a product of Chaska High School, has made it to the All-Star Game back-to-back seasons. In three years with the Padres, the lefty has a 2.66 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 3.94 K:BB ratio.
This should be a huge boost to a Cleveland bullpen that has the second-worst ERA in baseball at 5.28.
UPDATE: Cleveland is also getting Adam Cimber a right-handed reliever who has a 3.17 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 5.10 K:BB ratio in this, his rookie season. The sliver lining for Twins fans is Francisco Mejia is heading to San Diego.
Rated as the No. 15 prospect in all of baseball by MLB Pipeline, Mejia was Cleveland's best trade chip. That means 1) This is more than likely the biggest addition Cleveland will be able to make (though they do have some other attractive pieces on the farm), and 2) This will also more than likely be looked back upon as just an absolutely terrible trade by Cleveland. Hard to imagine cashing in a top catching prospect for two bullpen guys and feeling good about it five years later.
