Arizona Diamondbacks RP Matt Reynolds has made 22 consecutive scoreless appearances dating back to last year, when he pitched for the Colorado Rockies. He tied the franchise record of 19 consecutive appearances to begin a season Saturday, May 11; the record was first established by Joe Paterson in 2011.

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said RP Heath Bell will receive the first chance to close out games with RP J.J. Putz (elbow) injured.
Fantasy Tip: Target Bell immediately off the waiver wire. David Hernandez is a consolation prize, and he'll likely get a shot if Bell struggles. Matt Reynolds could enter the picture if both pitchers fail to get the job done.

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Heath Bell said he was told that he and RP David Hernandez will split the closer duties based on matchups with RP J.J. Putz (elbow) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Bell is the best bet to receive the first closing opportunity or the majority of the save chances, at least initially, because of his extensive closing experience over Hernandez. Hernandez deserves to be owned, as well, because of this news. Matt Reynolds could fight his way into the mix if neither Bell nor Hernandez take advantage of their opportunities to save ballgames.

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Heath Bell will fill in at closer while RP J.J. Putz (elbow) is sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners are likely to be skeptical of the burly righty's ability to pitch well in the role and are probably wondering why David Hernandez isn't getting the nod. Bell should be picked up immediately, however. He's pitched well since his first three appearances of the season, for the most part, and he has 19 K's against just three walks in 13 1/3 frames. Arizona's bullpen has been heavily taxed in the early going. Hernandez may factor in if Putz's injury is a long-term issue. Matt Reynolds may as well, especially if matchups with left-handed batters become Kirk Gibson's concern. It's not clear if Putz is headed to the DL.
