RENO, Nev.— Relief pitcher J.J. Putz has been sent to the Reno Aces for a Major League rehab assignment, and will join the team in Reno today.
Putz, who went on the designated list on May 6 due to forearm tightness, pitched 13 games for the Diamondbacks this season before going on the DL. He went 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA and struck out 12 batters in 10 innings.
A 12-year Major League veteran and 2007 All-Star, Putz ranks sixth among active pitchers in career saves with 189. The mark also lands him 49th on the all-time saves list.
The right-hander spent time with the Aces in 2011 and 2013. In six combined outings for Reno, Putz went 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA in six innings.
