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.

Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Takes fifth loss, blows first save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ziegler (0-5) recorded just one out before allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks to blow his first save and take the loss Wednesday against San Diego.

It was only a matter of when the other shoe would drop for Ziegler, who doesn't miss bats and carried a 7.54 ERA into Wednesday's blown save, somehow his first in 10 chances. Ziegler has now allowed eight runs in his last five outings and the question now seems to be when, not if, his ineffectiveness will become too much for the Marlins to accept.

Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Grabs ninth save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ziegler gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday's to pick up his ninth save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Mets.

Despite his bloated 6.55 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, Ziegler has yet to blow a save this season. He's hardly been dominant, though, posting a 5:1 K:BB through 10 appearances (9.1 innings) in May, and if his shaky outings start coming in more crucial situations, Kyle Barraclough could still easily push Ziegler out of the closer role.

Marlins' Brad Ziegler: Implodes in non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ziegler retired two of the six batters he faced in Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Braves, surrendering four runs on three hits and a walk.

Since the Marlins held a five-run lead entering the bottom of the ninth inning, Ziegler's implosion came in a non-save situation, but the meltdown nonetheless looses his already shaky hold on the closer job. After Ziegler was unable to record the final out, Marlins manager Don Mattingly turned to Tayron Guerrero to preserve a two-run lead, but the rookie fireballer allowed all four hitters he faced to reach base as the Braves walked off to a victory. Though Ziegler is officially 8-for-8 in save chances this season, he sports a 7.20 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 20 innings and has already allowed more home runs (three) than he did in 2017 (one). Kyle Barraclough, who delivered a clean eighth inning Sunday, would likely get the first look at closer if the Marlins opt to make a change at the back of their bullpen.
