On this afternoon update the Miami Sports Wave updates you on the latest deadline deals from the Miami Marlins and Major League Baseball. We keep you updated to the minute thanks to our partners, here is the latest news on a busy day in baseball.
Marlins trade reliever Brad Ziegler to Arizona
The Marlins were expected to be sellers at the deadline but things started out relatively slow. Then around mid-day news broke that veteran reliever Brad Ziegler was traded to his former team the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ziegler played in the desert on and off from the 2011 to 2016 seasons. Ely Sussman (@RealEly) has the details on the Marlins blog Fish Stripes (@FishStripes).

Maybin off to Seattle
The Ziegler trade was the first domino to fall, shortly afterwards news broke that outfielder Cameron Maybin was shipped to the Seattle Mariners. It will be the eighth team Maybin has played for in his career and seventh since just 2014. Marlins fans should expect to see him in uniform again in 2021.

Reports are the Marlins will receive a player and international bonus pool money from the Mariners in exchange for Maybin. The Marlins also kept something very important in the deal.
