The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired Brad Ziegler from the Miami Marlins according to multiple reports.
Ziegler previously played with the Diamondbacks from 2011-2016 and will rejoin the team as they make a playoff push. He has a 3.98 ERA this season in 53 appearances. Although he started off the season as the Marlins’ closer, Ziegler has benefitted from a role change. He has allowed just three earned runs since June 1.
The Diamondbacks already have one of MLB’s best bullpens with a 3.07 ERA. Ziegler will help make that unit even better heading into the late months of the season.
The Diamondbacks will trade Double-A reliever Tommy Eveld to the Marlins in exchange for Ziegler according to Nick Piecoro. Eveld is a 24-year-old and has a 1.96 ERA in three minor league seasons.
