In exchange, the Marlins received MiLB outfielder Tommy Eveld. Of course, Ziggy was a very familiar face to all of us, Just prior to this season, we ranked him the #18 Diamondback of All-Time, stemming from his 2011-2016 stint with the team.During that time, he was arguably one of the best relievers in baseball. In his 401 innings pitched, he put up a 2.41 ERA, good for a 168 ERA+. Of course, he was known for getting the ground ball. As Jim points out in the above All-Time article Jose Peraza Jersey , during his 2011-16 seasons, he had the lowest fly ball% of any pitcher at 13.4%. That was better than second place Zach Britton by an astounding 6.4%. It made him specifically qualified as the definition of a fireman, being able to come in and get a ground ball double play, essentially on command.That came to an end, at least for the Diamondbacks, in July 2016 when the One and Only David Keith Stewart traded Ziegler for basically a sack of baseballs, one week after Ziegler said the team approached him about a potential contract extension.Fastforward two seasons, and he was once again with the team. He didn’t get off to the best of starts, throwing one inning in his debut and being charged with four earned runs on three hits and a walk. Needless to say, it was the cause of great consternation on this site, especially since the other two pitchers that we acquired around the same time also weren’t doing to great. However, Ziegler quickly turned it around http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , going another nine games before giving up another run. Overall, he did fairly well, if not nearly as well as he did his first time with Arizona, but he was serviceable, especially considering the struggles of the rest of the bullpen. On October 10th, his 39th birthday, Ziegler posted a heartfelt letter to his Twitter feed. In it, he recounted some of his favorite, and some less favored, memories from his 11 year career and announced that he was hanging up his cleats. I’ve seen nothing to indicated it was intentional that he was traded back to the team that would no doubt be on his cap if he were inducted into the Hall of Very Good, but if it was a coincidence, a very fitting one it was.Beyond continuing his work through his charity Matt Harvey Jersey , Pastime for Patriots, and tweeting scathing indictments of how MLB handles instant replay, Mr. Ziegler hasn’t made any public announcements as to what comes next. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up either in a front office somewhere or even back in a bullpen or dugout, coaching the next generation of pitchers. Wherever life takes him next, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt, he will always be a Diamondback. NEW YORK (AP) — Logan Morrison agreed to a minor league contract Friday with the New York Yankees, who sought another first base option with Greg Bird again on the injured list.If added to the 40-man roster, Morrison would get a one-year contract with a $1 million salary while in the major leagues.Morrison told the Tampa Bay Times in July 2017 that Yankees catcher Gary Sánchez did not deserve to be in the All-Star Home Run Derby after missing 21 games between April 8 and May 5 because of a strained right biceps.“It’s par for the course. I play for the Rays. I get it,” Morrison told the newspaper then. “They can’t even get my picture right. When they put my name up there they put Corey (Dickerson’s) picture up there … on MLB Network. When they put up the home run leaders they put Corey’s swing on there not mine.”In April 2018 before playing at Yankee Stadium with the Minnesota Twins, Morrison was quoted criticizing Yankees fans.“They didn’t like the Gary Sánchez thing with the Home Run Derby,” Morrison told the St. Paul Pioneer Press, “but you can’t fix stupid Scott Schebler Jersey , you know?”Sánchez was asked Friday about Morrison’s comments.“That’s a long time ago and we’re way over that stuff,” Sánchez said through a translator. “Now he’s a teammate and we’re going to treat him as a teammate. We’re going to welcome him here in this clubhouse. There’s no sense talking (about) something that happened so long ago.”Morrison hit .186 with 15 homers and 39 RBIs in 318 at-bats last year during his only season with Minnesota. He set career bests with 38 homers and 85 RBIs for the Rays in 2017, then signed a deal with the Twins that called for a $5.5 million salary last year. Minnesota declined an $8 million option for 2019 and paid a $1 million buyout.A nine-year major league veteran, the 31-year-old has a .239 career average with 137 homers and 421 RBIs.“Obviously, just some depth right now and a guy that has a proven big league track record,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “So I think it’s good for us to get somebody, if we have a situation, that’s capable of doing some damage if he got up here.”A left-handed hitter, Morrison could complement right-handed-hitting Luke Voit. Bird went on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left plantar fascia tear, and Boone said he expects Bird will miss at least a month.
