Diamondbacks | Heath Bell to stay in closer role
Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said RP J.J. Putz will be taken out of the closer's role in favor of RP Heath Bell for the time being.
Fantasy Tip: The D-backs will let Putz work in lower-leverage situations in order to get his feet back under him and to regain some velocity. Bell was dropped in a wide range of leagues when Putz returned last week, so run to the waiver wire and pick him up if he's out there. It's unknown how long Bell will hold off Putz, but as long as Bell continues to pitch the ninth, he should be owned.
