2018 FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: INDIANS ACQUIRE CLOSER BRAD HAND

A day after the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired Manny Machado, the Cleveland Indians fired off a trade round by picking up San Diego Padres closer Brad Hand in a deal for top catching prospect Francisco Mejia. The move is a decent one for Hand from a fantasy baseball perspective as he will now likely take over for the struggling Cody Allen as closer as he has pitched to a 3.05 ERA and striking out 65 batters in 44.1 IP. Kirby Yates now becomes the likely new closer in San Diego and he should be added everywhere. Yates is having a big year himself and he has the high K rate to succeed as a stopper. Mejia should also be added as his bat has been lauded throughout his development and now he will get a chance to play consistently.
