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.

D-backs' Ziegler happy with whatever role he's given

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Of the few position battles happening in Diamondbacks spring training this year, the competition for the closer's role figures to be the most intriguing.
