Brad Ziegler (RP, ARI) - Waiver Wire Analysis

Uncle Leo - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues. ANALYSIS: The Diamondbacks bullpen situation is a mess right now, and the dreaded closer-by-committee is in place. Ziegler has been steady all year, rocking a stat line of 2.44 ERA / 1.04 WHIP and 24 Ks over 44 1/3 IPs. More importantly, Ziegler has been called upon to close out games recently with Heath Bell struggling, and J.J Putz still rounding back into form. Ziegler's converted 3 saves in the past 2 weeks, including ones on 7/11 and 7/13. He probably isn't the best long-term bet for saves in Arizona, but he's getting some chances now and may just run away with the job. Stranger things have happened, and don't forget that he had 18 saves between 2008-2009 in Oakland - so he has some experience in the role too.
