Marlins reliever Brad Ziegler may be in a new uniform soon.
The 38-year-old right hander is expected to be moved before the July 31 trade deadline, according to a report from Fancred Sports’ Jon Heyman.
The Cubs and Red Sox are among the likely landing spots for Ziegler, the report says. The Astros and Indians may also be interested.
