RP J.J. Putz, Arizona Diamondbacks: Heath Bell is getting the saves for the Diamondbacks now, but the job will be Putz's when he returns from the DL. Bell recently gave up back-to-back homers, effectively shaking the closer's confidence. Putz had a "great" throwing session Monday and will make a rehab start Friday. He may be racking up the saves by the end of the month, so reacquire him now. Bell owners: He won't be worth a spot in your lineup when Putz returns, so plan accordingly.
