What about a speculative add with Ziegler in Arizona? He did close games with Oakland a few years back

I wouldn't bother with him. It's going to be Putz long term -- after giving up a run in a blown save on July 1, he has recorded 10 straight outs over four appearances. Now's the time to get Putz as cheap as possible.

Ziegler's actually been worse in July than Putz, with four runs, three walks and one strikeout in four innings. He's not a major K pitcher anyway, getting his outs via ground balls, but his tiny K rate is something to keep in mind if you have IP limits for roto leagues. Ziegler's also leading the league in appearances -- over-usage risk?

Jim Henderson is Notacloser but still interesting long-term, however, yesterday's outing doesn't help his case. 4 bb in 1 ip. Axford's clearly been better since the beginning of June. I'm starting to lean in his direction, if there's a K-Rod trade.

Zeigler got the save last night. if you're looking for saves, Zeigler is valuable. I wouldn't drop someone you feel is more useful, but if you have someone you can drop to pick up Zeilger it wouldn't be a bad move. if he only gets 1 more save over the next week, that's 1 more save to add to your number. Putz would be the guy once they have confidence in him, but right now it seems they don't, so right now Zeigler is just as good as anyone. I would think he would be ahead of Bell or Bell would still be the short term fill in closer until Putz is ready.
Putz could be the guy tonight, and going forward. but until I see that I think Zeigler can be just as useful for saves.

Hernandez notches down save tonight. Could he take it and run? was Ziegler unavailable?

I'm still waiting to see which closers might get traded. I just saw this..

Twins GM Terry Ryan said that he's gotten unlimited calls on Glen Perkins, but he's not motivated in moving him.

Not for nothing, but the alleged next-in-line in BAL, Tommy Hunter, has pretty much sucked lately....might O'Day sneak in behind Johnson as we start 2nd half?
