As of this moment, it’s unclear what players the D-backs will be sending to Florida in exchange for Ziegler, who’s sporting a 3.98/4.58 ERA/FIP in 2018, including 6.40 K/9 and 2.94 BB/9.
In addition, it’s being reported that the D-backs may be interested in adding another arm to the bullpen before the trade deadline later today.
Dbacks may also may be interested in a power arm for the pen. Plenty of relievers available. The nats just put 2-3 pen guys out there.
