The Twins' already slim chances of catching Cleveland in the American League Central race, were dealt a significant blow on Thursday when the Indians acquired lefthanded closer Brad Hand and righthanded reliever Adam Cimber from San Diego.
Hand has been the Padres closer for the past calendar year, after being traded to San Diego from the Miami Marlins, and has been the subject of trade rumors for nearly that length of time as well. The bullpen, which helped the team to the 2016 World Series, remains a strength with Andrew Miller and Cody Allen at the back end. Miller and Allen will be eligible for free agency after the season.
A 27-year-old rookie, Cimber lays claim to a 3-5 record, 3.17 ERA and 51 strikeouts in 42 appearances this season. Some teams felt San Diego was asking too much for the closer past year, when the Padres finished 71-91. Rosenthal reported he signed a three-year, $19.75 million contract with Cleveland with a club option for 2021.
