The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired relief pitcher Brad Ziegler from the Miami Marlins, according to multiple reports.

According to the Arizona Republic, the Marlins will receive minor league reliever Tommy Eveld in return for Ziegler, a right-hander with a sidewinding throwing motion.

This marks a return appearance for the 38-year-old Ziegler to Arizona, where he pitched from 2011 to 2016. He also has pitched for Oakland and Boston throughout his 11-year career.

He had his best year in 2015 in Arizona, when he had 30 saves and a 1.85 ERA in 68 innings pitched.

This season, Ziegler got off to a slow start and lost his job at the Marlins' closer. Since June 5, however, he has pitched 28 innings and recorded a 0.64 ERA. Overall he was 1-5 with 10 saves and a 3.98 ERA for Miami.

Eveld, 24, is a righty who Arizona chose in the ninth round in 2016. He is 3-2 with a 1.11 ERA in 35 appearances this season between Class-A and Double-A levels.
