After missing out on both Aroldis Chapman and Kenley Jansen, the Miami Marlins have found other ways to bolster their shaky bullpen. Yesterday they signed former Red Sox reliver Junichi Tazawa and today they've reportedly added submarine right hander Brad Ziegler, for two years and $16 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com.
Ziegler, 37, pitched for both the Red Sox and the Arizona Diamondbacks last year appearing in 69 games. He went 4-7 with 22 saves, 6 blown saves and a 2.25 ERA. Ziegler broke into the bigs in 2008, and ever since then has been the definition of reliable out of the bullpen, having never posted an ERA above 3.50.
His control has been a little iffy from the submarine angle, leading to a lot of walks and high WHIP, but regardless he should present a very good relief option and potential set up man for the Marlins in the upcoming year.
