The Miami Marlins agreed to trade veteran reliever Brad Ziegler tothe Arizona Diamondbacksahead of Tuesday's 4 p.m. non-waiver deadline http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tom-seaver-jersey , USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported.The 38-year-old is1-5 with a3.98 ERA and 1.269 WHIPthis season. He's recorded10saves but was replaced byKyle Barraclough as the Marlins' closer.Ziegler also spent six years with the Diamondbacks from 2011 to 2016 and had a2.49 ERA in 348 appearances.The veteran righty is in the final year of a contract that's paying him $9 million in 2018. He struggled to start the 2018 season, but he has allowed just three earned runs in 29 appearances between June and July. The Diamondbacks will hope that trend continues during the stretch run.Earlier this year, Ziegler began making an adjustment to his delivery in hopes of seeing better performance. He's been nearly lights out ever since, lowering his ERA more than three runs since the beginning of June. The return to form led to trade rumors with the Marlins well out of the playoff picture and Ziegler nearing the end of his career."I have no control over it Asdrubal Cabrera Jersey , so you know, if it happens it happens," Ziegler said, per Mike Persakof the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "If not http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tug-mcgraw-jersey , I鈥檓 happy here. I like the guys here. I think we're starting to do something really good here, and I like being part of the beginning of it."Ziegler won't be under much pressure inArizona. It will likely look to him for some seventh- and eighth-inning work and didn't give up an elite prospect.As they make an attempt for a pennant push, though, adding Ziegler will likely be a boost for the Diamondbacks if he can keep up his recent strong performances. Rob Carr/Getty ImagesWashington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Cincinnati Reds with an apparent right leg injury after he was hit by a pitch in the bottom of the sixth inning.Harper trotted out to his post in right field the following inning Juan Lagares Jersey , but as MLB.com's Jamal Collier noted, he was limping and had to be removed.Adam Eaton replaced him in the lineup.Harper flirted with disaster last August when he suffered a significant bone bruise in his left knee against the San Francisco Giants. However, he avoided ligament or tendon damage and worked his way back to 100 percent fitness in time for the playoffs.Entering Saturday, the six-time All-Star was slashing .230/.377/.492 with 26 home runs and 67 RBI. He's also logged 2.3 offensive wins above replacement http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-travis-d_arnaud-jersey , according to Baseball Reference.Needless to say, that kind of power can't be replaced by another outfielder on the Nationals roster.In the meantime, Eaton鈥攚ho is hitting .301 this season鈥攕hould occupy Harper's usual spot in the corner of Washington's outfield.
