The Padres All-Star you've never heard of is trade deadline'

The player who might be Adidas Authentic Jack Johnson Youth Jersey most in demand at the trade deadline is a 2017 All-Star, but he could be the most obscure one. San Diego Padres reliever Brad Hand is a 27-year-old left-hander with four career saves, but every playoff contender looking for a bullpen upgrade -- which is pretty much every playoff contender -- will be calling the Padres. Over the past two seasons, Hand is tied with Chris Devenski for most innings pitched among relievers. He’s third in strikeouts and eighth in WAR. Among relievers with at least 80 innings pitched, he ranks in the top 20 in strikeout rate, OPS allowed and weighted on-base average (wOBA) allowed. He has been effective against righties and lefties. Given his workload, he has been one of the top-10 relievers in the game -- sort of an Andrew Miller lite. Amazingly, the Padres claimed him off waivers in April 2016 from the Marlins, who grew frustrated with Hand’s inability to develop into Adidas Daniel Alfredsson Authentic Jersey a starter. Still, it’s hard to believe an organization as talent-starved as the Marlins would give up on a former top prospect without giving him a longer run as a reliever. The Padres immediately put Hand in the bullpen. Like Miller, he became primarily a fastball/slider pitcher. His fastball still sits around 92-94 mph, and the slider is his wipeout pitch, with batters hitting .114 against it with a 50 percent strikeout rate. As with Miller, it's Hand's abilities to retire batters from both sides of the plate and go more than three outs at a time that make him so desirable to playoff teams. He has gone four or more outs in 11 of his 39 appearances this year and is on pace to pitch in 78 games, the kind of durability managers will want in October. Remember how Joe Maddon and Terry Francona managed their pitching staffs in October: quick hooks on their starters and then riding Aroldis Chapman and Miller, respectively, for more than three outs. Cubs starters pitched seven innings just three times in 17 postseason games and went fewer than five innings five times even though the starters didn't give up more than three runs in those games. Indians starters went seven innings just one time and fewer than five eight times in 15 games. Given that offense is up across the majors this year, teams are likely to demand even more from their bullpens this postseason. Why would the Padres trade Hand, who isn’t a free agent until after 2019? Simple: A rebuilding team should always cash in on a reliever when it can. The Padres might not be good until 2019, about when Hand will be ready to leave the team as a free agent. He could get hurt or lose effectiveness before then, too, and San Diego also has two other decent southpaws in Ryan Buchter and rookie Jose Torres. Marcus Stroman is the sort of pitcher who will forever engender the trust of his managers and teammates because there has never been any question about whether he is invested in the moment. This is probably part of the reason why Team USA manager Jim Leyland picked Stroman to pitch the final of the World Baseball Classic. There might be days when Stroman doesn’t have the best stuff or the best command, but the man competes, his hat pulled low, seemingly to frame the hitters he attacks. Stroman strangled the Puerto Rican team for six hitless innings in that game, and after Team USA's win, Stroman said: “I love pitching in these moments. I love the atmosphere. I feel like the bigger the Adidas Authentic Nazem Kadri Womens Jersey
game, the more I’m able to get up, the more effective I am. I truly try to pride myself on being a big-game pitcher.” This intangible is part of the Stroman evaluation collected by other teams, part of the scouting report, and as rival executives sort through possible options in the trade market, some of them have paused to mull over his name. There is no indication that Stroman’s club, the Toronto Blue Jays, will dangle him this summer, but there is consensus among folks with other teams on this point: Toronto could extract a high return for him if it decides to drop him into conversations as a significant wild card in trade talks. The Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros are among the teams seeking someone exactly like Stroman: a starting pitcher under contractual control beyond 2017. Stroman, 26, won’t be eligible for free agency until after the 2019 season. The Los Angeles Dodgers, stacked with talent, could also be interested. For the Jays, there might be some logic in at least considering a trade of Stroman now. After Toronto’s 7-6 win against the Yankees on Wednesday, the Jays are 39-45, 9.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the AL East and five games behind the Royals in the race for the second wild card. The perception of some high-ranking executives with other teams is that Toronto will be prepared to sell if its competitive position becomes untenable. The Jays certainly have assets to market: Josh Donaldson, their third baseman who can reach free agency after 2018; J.A. Happ, an experienced lefty who is under contract through next season; right-hander Marco Estrada; and outfielder Jose Bautista.

Marcus Stroman is the kind of pitcher who will everlastingly induce the trust of his chiefs and partners in light of the fact that there has never been any inquiry regarding whether he is put resources into the occasion. This is presumably part of the motivation behind why Essay Service Team USA director Jim Leyland picked Stroman to pitch the last of the World Baseball Classic.
