Diamondbacks | Arizona trades Brad Ziegler

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 05:20:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Brad Ziegler was traded to the Boston Red Sox Saturday, July 9, in exchange for P Jose Almonte and INF Luis Alejandro Basabe.

Fantasy Tip: Daniel Hudson and Tyler Clippard are both candidates to take over the closer role with Ziegler no longer on the team. Each pitcher has recorded one save so far this season, so owners should monitor the situation to see which pitcher receives the next save opportunity. Owners in NL-only leagues should pick up either pitcher if they are available. Hudson and Clippard will have value in mixed leagues if they become the new closer for Arizona.

Red Sox | Boston adds Brad Ziegler

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 05:13:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Brad Ziegler was acquired by the Boston Red Sox Saturday, July 9, in exchange for P Jose Almonte and INF Luis Alejandro Basabe.

Fantasy Tip: Ziegler's acquisition was made after Craig Kimbrel suffered his injury, so there is a chance Ziegler could be used as the closer if Kimbrel is sidelined for a while. He likely will be used as a setup man once everyone is healthy. Owners in AL-only leagues should look to add Ziegler to their roster, while owners in mixed leagues should consider keeping him even if he does not close.
