Marlins reportedly trade reliever Brad Ziegler to Diamondbacks
The Arizona Diamondbacks are fighting for the lead in the NL West division, and they made a move on Tuesday that should help bolster their bullpen for the stretch run to the postseason.
According to multiple reports, the Miami Marlins have agreed to a deal with the D-Backs that will send veteran reliever Brad Ziegler to Arizona.

Ziegler has struggled some over the past two seasons with Miami, but he has been one of the most dependable relievers in baseball for many years. Prior to the time he spent with the Marlins, the right-hander had an ERA of 2.82 or less in six of seven seasons. He should help solidify the D-Backs’ bullpen as they try to get the best of the Los Angeles Dodgers over the next two months.
