Arizona Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz is back on the disabled list. This time it is for trying to field Philadelphia Phillies infielder Kevin Frandsen’s grounder in the bottom of the seventh inning. Putz was unsuccessful in that attempt as the ball ricocheted off of his hand but he would finish the inning.
Well, according to Nick Piecoro, Diamondbacks beat writer for AZCentral Sports, Putz is going back on the 15 day disabled list with a dislocated right pinky and a small laceration.

Not good for the Diamondbacks as they have not had a good week in terms of winning games. If you remember, Putz was put on the disabled list earlier this season for 46 games with a sprained UCL, a strained flexor, and ulnar neuritis. But when healthy, Putz has been a good reliever out of the bullpen. So far this season, he has a 2.51 ERA in 28.2 innings of work this season.
