J.J. Putz left last night’s game with elbow stiffness

This isn’t good: J.J. Putz left his appearance last night because of elbow stiffness.

Putz has been struggling so far this year — he’s allowed six runs on 12 hits and eight walks in twelve and two-thirds — and perhaps this is the reason why.  If he is DL’d, the Dbacks’ options at closer are David Hernandez, Matt Reynolds and Heath Bell.

Or maybe Martin Prado could close. That guy can do anything.
