The Arizona Diamondbacks placed RP J.J. Putz (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain Wednesday, May 8, and recalled RP Will Harris from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The Snakes indicated earlier in the day that Heath Bell would take over the closing duties with Putz sidelined. Bell should immediately be snatched up in all formats, but now we know he'll have at least two weeks' worth of save opportunities. Despite Bell's atrocious season with the Miami Marlins last year, he's pitched well of late and has 19 K's to only three walks on the season.
David Hernandez will continue to set up in the eighth inning, but he might become a long-term factor in the ninth if Putz is out for an extended period. The fact that Hernandez was 0-for-3 in save chances (two in the eighth inning) this year might be the reason Kirk Gibson is going with Bell over him, at least for the time being. Bell's experience in the closer role gives him the edge, also.
