Brad Ziegler, Jake Diekman traded to Arizona Diamondbacks

Use of bullpen carts has slowly trickled back into baseball this season since the D-Backs announced the vehicle's return during spring training. Both relievers are scheduled to hit free agency after this season.

Texas Rangers pitcher Jake Diekman was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, and all he had to do was take a golf cart to the other side of Chase Field.

Arizona is sending minor leaguer Wei-Chieh Huang and another player to be named later.

The 38-year-old Ziegler pitched for Arizona from 2011 through 2016, compiling a 21-11 record and a 2.49 ERA with 62 saves. He has an overall 1.029 WHIP in his 29 outings this season, averaging 12.0 strikeouts per 9 innings and 0.6 home runs per 9.

Only these 2 options have been listed, lending more weight to rumors that Samsung is ditching the phone's 64GB and 256GB variants. As far as the cameras go, the device is expected to sport a dual camera setup very similar to the Galaxy S9 Plus.

The Arizona Diamondbacks brought back a familiar sidearm right-hander and acquired a left-hander who happened to be just down the hall in a pair of trade deadline moves created to bolster the bullpen. In addition, left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa was designated for assignment.

Ziegler joins an already deep Diamondbacks bullpen that includes closer Brad Boxberger (25 saves, 3.49 ERA), Archie Bradley (3 saves, 3.02 ERA), T.J. McFarland (1 save, 1.78 ERA) and Yoshihisa Hirano (2.33 ERA).

Huang, 24, pitched for both High-A Visalia and Double-A Jackson this season, where he combined for a 2.31 ERA in 58 1/3 innings over two starts and 27 relief appearances.

The D-backs have acquired three relievers through July trades in Diekman, Ziegler and Matt Andriese.
