Reliever Brad Hand signed a one-season contract with the Washington Nationals.
On Sunday evening, ESPN reported that the 30-year-old had a salary of $ 10.5 million.
Last year with the Cleveland baseball team, Hand appeared in 23 games and recorded 16 saves, a Major League record. He also maintained a 2-1 record and a 2.05 earned-run average.
Wanting to save money, the Ohio squad bought out the gunner’s contract in the fall. Cleveland had obtained his services from the San Diego Padres in 2018.
Hand also wore the colors of the Miami Marlins during his career. He was also a second-round pick for the Florida club in the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft.
