      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Projected closer for 2018

      Brad Ziegler will be the Miami Marlins' closer going into spring training, Joe Frisaro of reports.Although a lot can change between now and Opening Day, it's apparent that Ziegler will have the inside track at landing the ninth-inning role. During the 2017 season, he appeared in 53 games, posting a 4.79 ERA -- but just a 3.77 FIP -- and 1.55 WHIP, and he converted 10 save opportunities following the departure of AJ Ramos in late July. Battling Ziegler for the job will be Kyle Barraclough and Drew Steckenrider, both of whom got chances in later innings last September.

      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Grabs 10th save Friday

      Brad Ziegler pitched two-thirds of a scoreless inning Friday against the Braves en route to his 10th save of the season.Interestingly, the Miami Marlins opted to begin the ninth inning with Jarlin Garcia, but after he loaded the bases with one out in the frame, it was up to Ziegler to clean up the mess. The sidewinder wound up inducing a game-ending double play on his only pitch of the evening. Ziegler's stock certainly isn't trending upward right now, as his 7.20 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in September suggest, although he hasn't allowed an earned run in his last three appearances. However, he seems to have been leapfrogged for save opportunities in Miami, which could remove him from fantasy relevancy heading into 2018 if he's unable to reclaim the closer's role next spring.

      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Blows save Sunday

      Brad Ziegler (illness) was charged with a blown save after allowing an unearned run on two hits in one inning Sunday against the Diamondbacks. He struck out one.It was just Ziegler's second appearance in the past two weeks thanks to a back injury followed by an illness. He's 0-for-3 in save chances in September with an 8.31 ERA, so it may be wise to stay away from him for the final week of the season.

      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: May be available Wednesday

      Manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that he's hoping Brad Ziegler (illness) will be available Wednesday, Tim Healey of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.Just as Ziegler turned the page on a back issue, he fell under the weather. The submariner was unavailable both Monday and Tuesday as a result of the illness. Ziegler has squandered his last two save opportunities and the save chances have been few and far between lately for Miami, but he figures to remain the top endgame option over the remainder of the season.

      Brad Ziegler (back) is available out of the Miami Marlins' bullpen Monday night for the first time in over a week, Tim Healey of the Miami Sun-Sentinel reports.Ziegler has been out of action since Sept. 7.

      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Hoping to pitch this week

      Brad Ziegler (back) said Monday that he's hoping to pitch at some point this week, Joe Frisaro of reports.Ziegler is nursing a back issue and recently underwent an MRI, the results of which have not been disclosed publicly. We should know more about his status in the coming days. Kyle Barraclough seems like the top candidate to see save chances in Ziegler's absence, but Drew Steckenrider, who earned his first career save earlier this month, will also be an option.

      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Unavailable Saturday

      Brad Ziegler is dealing with back issues and will not be available Saturday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.The right-hander has had a rough go lately, blowing two straight save opportunities, his latest coming Thursday. Ziegler may need a few days to recuperate from this setback. Kyle Barraclough presumably would step into save chances in his stead -- and it could be an audition for him to get the job in the long term.

      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Blows second straight save

      Brad Ziegler (1-4) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk to blow his fifth save of the season during Thursday's loss to Atlanta.With Kyle Barraclough pitching extremely well -- 1.38 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and 13.8 K/9 since returning from the disabled list Aug. 15 -- and a potential closer replacement for Ziegler, the 37-year-old veteran is treading in dangerous waters. Ziegler sports an underwhelming 5.04 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 5.0 K/9 for the campaign, and he's now blown consecutive save opportunities.

      Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Blows save Friday versus Phillies

      Brad Ziegler allowed two runs on two hits and a walk while recording a blown save and a loss Friday against the Phillies. He recorded one strikeout.With men on first and third with one out, Ziegler allowed an RBI single to Jorge Alfaro and an RBI groundout from Andres Blanco for the go-ahead tally. This meltdown was out of character for the veteran, who didn't allow a single run across 13 appearances in August. Ziegler should be secure in his role moving forward.
