Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers told the media on Thursday, July 11, that his team has no closer at this point. He suggested that situations will dictate whom the team uses in save situations in the club's final four contests before the All-Star break.
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.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Chris D. Johnson, SP Ian Kennedy, OF Gerardo Parra, SS Cliff Pennington and RP's Tony Sipp and Brad Ziegler were among the 133 players to file salary arbitration this week. This is the first time Johnson, Kennedy, Parra, Sipp and Pennington have been eligible for arbitration. Ziegler has been eligible for arbitration the past two seasons, and last year avoided a hearing when he and the Diamondbacks settled on a one-year deal worth $1.795 million.

The Cleveland Indians traded OF Shin-Soo Choo to the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, Dec. 11, and they acquired SP Trevor Bauer from the Arizona Diamondbacks in the three-team trade. The Reds also added INF Jason Donald from the Indians, while sending minor-league SS Didi Gregorius to the Diamondbacks. The Indians sent RP Tony Sipp and 1B Lars Anderson to Arizona, and added RP Matt Albers and P Bryan Shaw.
Fantasy Tip: Choo moving to the Reds is a tremendous boon for his fantasy value. He has five-tool ability, and can be a great add early on draft day in NL-only formats, and mixed leaguers will certainly want to target him in the early to middle rounds. He'll be a consistent source of runs scored in a more potent lineup.
Bauer is the key piece for the Indians, as they get a potential cornerstone pitcher. He will be a great addition to their rotation, but keep in mind he might struggle for victories with a lineup that isn't looking too potent. In mixed leagues, he'll certainly be worth an add in the middle to late rounds for his potential, and he remains a must-have in long-term keeper formats.
