Ziegler trade timing nothing short of perfect

Ziegler comes to Boston from the Diamondbacks in a trade that sent Luis Alejandro Basabe and Jose Almonte to Arizona.

Brad Ziegler was activated today to the Sox major league roster. Sean O’Sullivan was placed on the 15 day disabled list with left knee patellar tendinitis, making room for Ziegler on the roster.

The Ziegler trade-which went down early Saturday morning- comes at just the right time. Kimbrel was unavailable in Friday nights game due to knee soreness, which turned into a torn medial meniscus which will require surgery and 3-6 weeks of recovery.

So the Ziegler news came at just the right time. In Kimbrel’s absence, Koji and Ziegler will split the coverage during his recovery.
