Ziegler’s last two losses are on the defense. 

And yes, I know that “closers” shouldn’t rely so much on defense, but it still doesn’t excuse the defense behind him.

I agree with you, but as someone else said, he’s prone to hard contact. And Castro’s play was an odd one because he started and stopped when marte bluffed and I’m sure that kind of threw off the play for him. If we can absolve Ziegler cause of the defense, then It’s fair to credit Marte with throwing off the defense with his speed as well. All in all, what the situation called for is a strikeout pitcher. Closers need to limit contact because as we all saw, things happen when you put the ball in play.
