Fantasy Tip: Not even the Snakes like their options anymore. J.J. Putz was apparently sufficiently healthy to activate from the DL last week but not to pitch in the ninth once he blew a chance. Heath Bell proves that he's not the man for the job consistently enough. Matchups suggest that others are in the mix, but Tony Sipp is the only southpaw in the bullpen. Hey, maybe he'll get a shot. David Hernandez could get a look, too. Clearly, the D'backs are willing to let someone demonstrate his willingness to take a stranglehold here. Putz, Bell and Hernandez are the best bets, relatively speaking, and probably in that order. The club is exploring internal and external options, reportedly, too.
