Disappointed by his 31st-round selection by the Athletics last June, Ziegler came back to Southwest Missouri State for his senior season and was named Missouri Valley Conference pitcher of the year. He set school records for career wins, starts, complete games, innings and strikeouts and tied the single-season victory mark before the Bears began NCAA regional play. Ziegler keeps batters off balance by throwing a variety of pitches from a variety of angles. Either his slider or his changeup is his best pitch, and he also employs an 87-89 mph fastball and a curveball. He showed off his control last summer, when he set a Cape Cod League record by opening the season with 32 2/3 innings without a walk. Unless SMS advances to the super regionals, Oakland will get a short window to sign Ziegler as a fifth-year senior.
