Ziegler unfazed by trade talk, line drive to ribs

PHOENIX -- Brad Ziegler had good cause to be distracted Wednesday. His name has been mentioned in trade talks this week, although there seems little chance he is going anywhere. And after being struck in the rib cage by a line drive Tuesday, he was unable to pitch in the final game of the Detroit series. He was still in some pain, but at least he could chuckle about it. He knows...

Ziegler survives shot to the ribs

PHOENIX -- It hurt to walk, but Brad Ziegler could laugh about the line drive that hit him squarely in the rib cage Tuesday. "It's like getting punched really hard in the chest," Ziegler said after the D-backs' 5-4 victory over Detroit at Chase Field. "Walking, I feel it. The jarring makes everything kind of vibrate in the area. It makes it tender. Talking...

Tigers interested in Brad Ziegler, but can they get him?

If anything the last couple of games for the Tigers is a continued indication that they need bullpen help if they’re going to make a run at the World Series this year.

Ziegler, D-backs pay another tribute to fallen Hot Shots

PHOENIX -- Brad Ziegler is as devoted in his giving as he is stingy with his earned runs, and he was at it again Friday morning.

Brad Ziegler rips Cardinals for signing Jhonny Peralta

Ziegler comes out of break as D-backs' closer

PHOENIX -- When the Diamondbacks parted for the All-Star break, one of their stated goals was determining a bullpen configuration. They came out of it with Brad Ziegler as the closer.

D-backs' Ziegler a sticker for the rules

PHOENIX -- Meet Brad Ziegler, the most knowledgeable man in baseball. Ziegler, a right-hander in the Diamondbacks' bullpen, blushes when he hears that, and he would argue the point. But it might just be true, at least where the rules are concerned. Ziegler received some national attention earlier this week when he scored a perfect 10 on a test of baseball rules put together...

First base coach pays price for inattention, gets hit in crotch with pickoff throw (video)

For some unknown reason that defies comprehension, the below video of a first base coach getting hit in the crotchal region by a pitcher’s pickoff throw took nearly a year to begin garnering attention on the interwebs.

Brad Ziegler: The Best Pitcher You’ve Never Heard Of

Last week, a sports journalist corrected me on the professional wrestler’s name they thought I was messing up. I’m not saying this to throw anyone under a bus. This person is great at their job. Besides, you probably had no idea who Brad Ziegler was either. I bet you also didn’t know Ziegler set two Major League records in 2012. Really. Two records. You just won’t see them...
