The Arizona Diamondbacks placed closer J.J. Putz on the disabled list Wednesday due to an elbow strain. In his place, pitcher Will Harris has been called up from Triple-A.
Putz came in to Tuesday night's game to close out a 5-3 lead against the Dodgers, but left the game after giving up a walk to the first batter he faced.Putz has a 4.26 ERA over his first 14 games this season.
After Putz left the game, Heath Bell took over and recorded the save with a perfect inning. The first indications are that Bell will take over as closer while Putz is on the disabled list.
Harris, 28, threw in 20 major league games for the Colorado Rockies in 2012, giving up 16 earned runs.
