Waiver Wire Treasures (Including A Pitcher Who Will Win Your League!)

The season may be winding down, but that is when the waiver wire can be your best, and sometimes, only friend. This list is by no means a complete listing of all the players that I think can help in a meaningful way down the stretch, but after quickly glancing over at some ESPN ownership percentages I couldn’t resist pointing out these few things that really jumped off the page...

Preview: Brewers at Diamondbacks

While the Milwaukee Brewers have already dealt one of their top veterans, the Arizona Diamondbacks need to get hot in a hurry to perhaps avoid doing some of the same. The Diamondbacks look to win consecutive games for the first time in a little more than two weeks Friday night against the visiting Brewers. Zack Godley struck out seven without a walk in six innings of his major league...

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...

When played right, D-backs have fun on defense

PHOENIX -- Pitching is sporadic and even the best hitters run into slumps or a dominant opposing hurler. But the Diamondbacks expect to play solid, above-average defense on a consistent basis. That is part of what was so frustrating about the weekend sweep at the hands of the Giants. The D-backs committed a pair of errors in the series and just weren't as crisp as they would have...

Ziegler closes out Marlins to end D-backs' skid

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks hadn't won in 12 days and manager Chip Hale desperately wanted to end a six-game losing streak. So he went somewhere he hadn't all season. Hale on Monday called on Brad Ziegler with one out in the eighth inning to preserve a two-run lead. Ziegler's last save of at least five outs was in 2009 while with the A's, and he threw 26 pitches in two innings on...

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...

D-backs' Brad Ziegler joins elite company after pitching in 500 games

Among the list of players with the lowest career ERAs, who have pitched at least 500 games, are Hall of Famers like Christy Matthewson and Walter Johnson as well as contemporary legends like Mariano Rivera.

MLB players: Broken-bat injury could have been prevented

If Major League Baseball had acted on a request by its players, the broken bat that seriously injured a woman at Fenway Park on Friday night never would have reached the seats. The players, in each of the last two rounds of collective bargaining, proposed that protective netting extend down the foul lines and even to the foul poles, according to major-league sources. The owners,...

They'll try for better results versus the majors' worst as they visit the slumping Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Arizona (21-25) had won six of seven before getting swept in St. Louis this week, though two of those defeats came in the Cardinals' final at-bat. Brad Ziegler...
