Diamondbacks | J.J. Putz to remain as closer

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Wednesday, April 24, that RP J.J. Putz will remain as his closer. "His split isn't very good right now," Gibson said. "He threw two fastballs right by (San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt) then hung two splits. His command is not as good as it has been in the past, so he's going to try and clean some stuff up. It's more about location for him at this point in his career."
