The Miami Marlins are turning to Kyle Barraclough to take over the closer role that has been manned by the struggling Brad Ziegler this season.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly made the announcement on Friday, according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

Ziegler, 38, is posting an ugly 7.83 ERA thus far this season as he plays out the 2nd season of a 2-year, $16M deal with the team.

Barraclough, 28, has had his struggles as well, but the Marlins are hopeful that his first stint in a closing role will be the turnaround that he needs.
