Reds | Interest in J.J. Putz?

Sat, 22 Mar 2014 23:44:11 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds may have use for Arizona Diamondbacks RP J.J. Putz, given that CL Aroldis Chapman (face) will be out up to eight weeks after taking a line drive off his head. Putz has closing experience and worked with current Reds manager Bryan Price when both were with the Seattle Mariners.

Diamondbacks | Addison Reed confirmed as closer

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 08:09:29 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson confirmed that RP Addison Reed will serve as the club's closer to start the season.

Fantasy Tip: Hardly a surprise, though they insisted the saves job was a camp competition. Reed should deliver solid midrange numbers, but don't write off J.J. Putz or David Hernandez getting in the mix if Reed should struggle.

Diamondbacks | J.J. Putz struggling

Sun, 09 Mar 2014 11:50:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP J.J. Putz has given up three runs on six hits and three walks, plus a hit batsman, in four appearances this spring. His fastball has gone from 86 to 88 mph early on to 88 to 90 more recently, which is still down from his average of 91.7 last year, per PITCHf/x. Manager Kirk Gibson isn't concerned. Putz went nearly a week between appearances as he tinkered with his mechanics with pitching coach Mike Harkey.

Fantasy Tip: Putz likely will play second fiddle for saves to Addison Reed when the season starts, especially if this continues.

Diamondbacks | Will Harris might be odd man out

Mon, 10 Feb 2014 19:58:02 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks have RPs Josh Collmenter, David Hernandez, J.J. Putz, Addison Reed, Joe Thatcher and Brad Ziegler appear to be locks for bullpen jobs, which might mean RP Will Harris is the odd man out. He has options remaining. RP Randall Delgado does not have options remaining, and that might mean Harris loses out in a numbers game.

Diamondbacks | Waiting for decision on closer

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 12:50:41 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson wants to wait to make a decision on who his closer will be this season. He doesn't want the closing candidates to overdo it this spring in order to try and impress the coaching staff.

Fantasy Tip: Addison Reed, whom the team traded for this winter, is expected to be the ninth-inning guy, but J.J. Putz and Brad Ziegler could have some say in the matter.

The Arizona Diamondbacks may look to trade RP J.J. Putz because they added RP Addison Reed earlier this offseason. Putz is scheduled to make $7 million and the team likely would look for player with a comparable salary in any trade.

The Arizona Diamondbacks activated RP J.J. Putz (pinkie) from the 15-day disabled list Monday, Sept. 16.
