Ziegler injures himself in second-consecutive relief collapse

Brad Ziegler has been a solid back-end reliever for the Arizona Diamondbacks all season, but his past two outings have been quite a regression for the veteran reliever. A day after giving up three earned runs in the top of the 11th inning of the D-backs' 7-4 loss to the Oakland A's on Sunday, Ziegler was shellacked by the Colorado Rockies for four runs in the bottom of the ninth...

Arizona Diamondbacks trade rumors: Brad Ziegler

The Arizona Diamondbacks are receiving a lot of interest in closer Brad Ziegler. It’s a surprise that this didn’t come sooner, but perhaps it’s because the D’Backs looked like they were going to contend until their recent plummet. Now at 44-50, playoff chances look slim and the team needs to be prepared to sell the players who won’t contribute in the future. Brad Ziegler’s...

D-backs' Ziegler not an All-Star despite worthy numbers

Perhaps it’s because of his funky submarine-style delivery that D-backs reliever Brad Ziegler hardly ever gets recognized despite a consistently low ERA throughout his eight-year career. The Arizona Republic notes that Ziegler was left off the All-Star game roster this year despite putting up All-Star-worthy numbers.Among relievers with over 30 innings pitched, Ziegler’s 1.25...

Arizona Diamondbacks, please learn to use Brad Ziegler

Yet again, Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale refused to use Brad Ziegler in a jam and lost the game for it. Before he took over the closer role, Ziegler was the reliever who would come in with runners on and bail out the previous pitcher. Whether listed as a closer or as a middle reliever, Ziegler is the D’Backs best option in jams and needs to be used to escape them. During...

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, laughing ... everybody...

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. With that in mind reports today surfaced that the team is interested in Arizona right-handed reliever Brad Ziegler… the only catch is he’s one of the players the D-Backs are said to be holding onto in the midst...

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.
