Brad Ziegler allowed a hit but no runs in the ninth inning to snare a save versus the Mets on Wednesday.

He surrendered a one-out single to Adrian Gonzalez but was able to slam the door from there to protect a 2-1 lead. Somehow Ziegler has yet to blow a save in nine chances despite an 0-3 record and 6.55 ERA. He's not your typical closer because of his low-80's fastball, low strikeout rate and extreme groundball profile. The Marlins will likely keep giving him save chances in the hope of building his trade value so they can flip him for a prospect this summer.

Dan Straily gave up just one run over six innings but didn't stick around long enough to earn a decision against the Mets on Wednesday.

He served up a solo dinger to outfielder Brandon Nimmo but that was the only dent in the scoreboard. He struck out five batters, walked three and allowed four hits. His record holds at 2-0 with a shiny 3.12 ERA and not-so-shiny 1.38 WHIP after five starts. He missed the season's first month with right forearm inflammation.

Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-3 and drilled a solo home run for his team's only run of the game in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

He took starter Dan Straily over the wall in the fifth inning. The Mets couldn't get much going tonight, snaring only six hits total in the ballgame. Nimmo is having a very solid season at the plate and has played his way into steadily increasing playing time as a result. He has a nice .259/.423/.469 slash line with three homers, six RBI and 16 runs scored in 104 plate appearances. He began the season as a bench player but is now starting everyday in the outfield.

Jeurys Familia coughed up two runs in the ninth inning to blow a save and take a loss against the Marlins on Wednesday.

He was called upon to protect a 1-0 lead and got the first batter to ground out, but then he surrendered a single and a double to put the game in jeopardy. J.T. Realmuto followed with an RBI single to tie the game with Derek Dietrich getting nailed at home plate trying to score a second run on the play. Familia then intentionally walked Justin Bour before giving up another RBI-single to Starlin Castro for the go-ahead run. It was a rare bad outing for Familia but his job as closer is still rock-solid even though he's blown four saves already. He has a 2.35 ERA with 13 saves.

Jacob deGrom punched out eight batters while firing seven shutout frames but had to settle for a no-decision as his team lost to the Marlins on Wednesday.

He left the game with a 1-0 lead but the Marlins came back to win in the final frame. DeGrom scattered four singles and two walks in the gem outing. His record holds at 4-0 with an awesome 1.54 ERA and 0.99 WHIP after 10 starts. He has 77 strikeouts and 16 walks in 58 1/3 innings. He lines up for two starts next week, facing the Braves and Cubs.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms that Welington Castillo will receive an 80-game suspension for violating baseball's joint drug agreement.

Castillo will be suspended for using a performance-enhancing drug, but not a steroid. The story was originally reported by Hector Gomez of Deportivo Z 101, the same reporter who originally passed along word of Robinson Cano's 80-game suspension. Castillo was hitting .270/.314/.477 with six homers and 15 RBI over 32 games this season for Chicago. He'll be eligible to return in late August, but will not be eligible for the postseason if the White Sox are able to make it, which is highly unlikely. Even more so now.

Nationals signed LHP Josh Edgin to a minor league contract.

Edgin exercised his opt-out clause with the Orioles on May 15, making him free to sign with any other club. He struck out 25 hitters over 12 games with Triple-A Norfolk before leaving the organization, and he posted a 3.65 ERA in in 46 games with the Mets in 2017. He could be called on to help the Washington bullpen at some point this summer.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Darren O'Day's elbow didn't feel well enough for him to throw a bullpen session.

Showalter also mentioned that further testing might be required. It would make sense that O'Day would be shut down to let the pain subside, and then the Orioles can reevaluate where the right-hander stands before making further decisions. For now, it seems unlikely he's back before the end of May.
