D-backs pushing hard to get Putz
The D-backs are pushing hard to get free agent right-hander J.J. Putz signed to a two-year deal with a club option for 2013.
Putz would slide into the role of closer as new GM Kevin Towers continues to try and remake the Arizona bullpen.
Putz, who will be 34 in February, was 7-5 with three saves and a 2.83 ERA in 60 games for the White Sox in 2010. The D-backs had attempted to sign him last offseason.
