I don't want to be talking about that when I play. After the season, maybe. It would be something good. I just want to play baseball and finish strong." Ziegler also said he's willing to listen to a long-term offer.

Diamondbacks | Brad Ziegler the closer

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 07:34:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Brad Ziegler has been anointed the team's closer for now.

Fantasy Tip: Go ahead and scoop him up, but we look for J.J. Putz to get another opportunity eventually. Still, Ziegler has been getting outs, and that's all Kirk Gibson may wind up caring about, so there's a chance he can keep the gig.
