Diamondbacks' Brad Ziegler: Lit up in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ziegler was charged with four earned runs on three hits and a walk over one inning in the Diamondbacks' 8-1 loss to the Giants.

After spending parts of six seasons in Arizona from 2011 through 2016, Ziegler rejoined the team Tuesday, when he became one of three relievers the Diamondbacks acquired prior to the non-waiver trade deadline. Ziegler's homecoming to the desert didn't go nearly as well as expected, as the soft-tossing veteran retired only three of the seven hitters he faced to effectively quash the Diamondbacks' chances of wining the series opener. Prior to Thursday's implosion, Ziegler had performed in dominant fashion over the past two months with the Marlins, accruing a 0.69 ERA and 0.77 WHIP over his previous 26 appearances.

Diamondbacks' Brad Ziegler: Traded to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ziegler was dealt to the Diamondbacks from the Marlins in exchange for Tommy Eveld on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of Fancred reports.

After a rough start to the 2018 campaign, Ziegler has logged a 0.64 ERA in his past 28 appearances dating back to June 5. He will add another strong arm to the bullpen in Arizona that includes fellow right-handers Brad Boxberger, Archie Bradley, Yoshihisa Hirano and Matt Andriese. Don't expect to see Ziegler get a chance as the Diamondbacks' closer, especially after the failed experiment in Miami to go along with his low 6.4 K/9. Ziegler previously spent time in Arizona from 2011 to 2016.

Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Picks up 10th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ziegler walked one and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his 10th save of the season in a 3-0 win over the Rays.

While he has been pitching much better since being removed from the closer role at the end of May, posting a 1.00 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 14:7 K:BB over his last 18 innings, Ziegler isn't back in the saves mix for the Marlins on a regular basis -- he was simply the next man up with Kyle Barraclough and Drew Steckenrider unavailable after having pitched both Monday and Tuesday. The veteran reliever has now reached double-digit saves for the fourth straight campaign, but don't expect too many more of them in 2018.

Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Removed from closer role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ziegler will no longer operate as the Marlins' closer, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Ziegler owns a 7.83 ERA as the Marlins' ninth-inning man this season and has allowed eight earned runs over his last five appearances. Manager Don Mattingly was noncommittal on Ziegler's role following his blown save Wednesday evening, but the skipper has now announced that the veteran will be used "differently" moving forward and will officially relinquish his closing duties. Mattingly failed to name Ziegler's replacement, but Kyle Barraclough seems to be the most likely candidate to take over the ninth-inning role.

Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Could surrender closing role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly was noncommittal when asked if Ziegler would retain closing duties after blowing a save in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Padres, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. "You want to get something dependable at the end of the game," Mattingly said, after Ziegler retired just one of five hitters he faced while giving up two runs (one earned) in the loss.

The blown save was actually Ziegler's first in 10 opportunities this season, but his 0-5 record, 7.83 ERA and 1.74 WHIP are more reflective of how shaky he has been in key spots. As one of baseball's preeminent groundball pitchers throughout his decade-plus of service time in the big leagues, Ziegler is often reliant on opposing contact finding gloves, but that hasn't happened nearly often enough, as he maintains a career-worst .376 BABIP. It doesn't appear that bad luck alone is at the root of Ziegler's struggles, however, as he has also served up four home runs in 23 innings, surpassing his total (three) from the previous two seasons combined. It may not be until the Marlins' next save chance before it becomes apparent if Ziegler has been removed as closer, but Mattingly said that if a change is made, Kyle Barraclough would likely take over, with Drew Steckenrider being next in line, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
