J.J. Putz awarded first win in extras
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz was awarded his first win of the season on Thursday against the Giants in extras.

Putz (1-0) struck out two in a perfect ninth inning for the Diamondbacks. Tony Campana singled in a run in the top of the 10th to give his team the lead and the win. Putz has struck out six and has not allowed a run over his first 4 1/3 innings pitched this season.

J.J. Putz working with reduced velocity
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz is working with reduced velocity, according to azcentral.com.

Putz's fastball has averaged 90.9 mph this year after coming in at 91.7 mph in 2013. Despite that, he's still been able to have success early in the season. Putz has tossed three scoreless innings with the club thus far. He believes he'll have the same type of success even with reduced velocity. "I think I'm the same kind of pitcher," Putz said. "I still go after guys. I try to get ahead and put them away with my split."

Putz concluded by saying, "you see plenty of guys throwing 97 and get hit all over the place. It's still a matter of making pitches."

Speculation: Reds could seek out trade for J.J. Putz
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Reds could eye Diamondbacks reliever and former Seattle and Arizona closer J.J. Putz to temporarily fill that role in their bullpen in the absence of Aroldis Chapman, according to FoxSports.com.

The Diamondbacks have named Addison Reed as their closer for this season and boast potential closers Brad Ziegler and David Hernandez in their bullpen as well, possibly making Putz expendable. Reds manager Bryan Price is familar with Putz, whom he worked with as a pitching coach with the Mariners.

J.J. Putz believes he's past his spring troubles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz hasn't had a great spring, posting a 6.35 ERA and 2.29 WHIP in six appearances, but the veteran pitcher believes his fortunes are about to turn around, per MLB.com.

Putz said he made a few mechanical changes this spring, which he believes thinking about them too much while pitching has led to the struggles.

"You make a bad pitch and your mind starts going back over all the mechanical checkpoints instead of just throwing free and easy," Putz said. "Now it's time to put that in the past and just go. It's to the point now where I think the muscle memory has kind of taken over to the point where I don't have to think about it very much."

J.J. Putz working through early spring struggles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz isn't off to a great start this spring, posting a 6.75 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in four relief appearances. However, manager Kirk Gibson is not concerned about the slow start from the veteran reliever.

"The thing about J.J. is, he's pitched a lot games, he's been through a lot of spring trainings, he's saved a lot of games, and I think that when the season starts it'll be a whole different game for him," Gibson said, per The Arizona Republic. "He's one of those guys."

Though, scouts have reported Putz's fastball has ranged from 86-90 mph this spring. He averaged 91.7 mph on his fastball last season, according to Pitch-f/x data.

"His velocity probably isn't where he wants it, but it's been there before," Gibson said.
