Heath Bell: Back In The Closer's Role

Rotowire.com
Update: Bell will re-assume the closer's duties for the Diamondbacks for the time being, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Recommendation: J.J. Putz was handed the closer's role after being activated from the disabled list last week, but Bell will take the job back so that Putz can work through some mechanical issues that resulted in a blown save Monday night. It's not clear how long Bell will hang onto the ninth-inning duties, but he is worth adding in the short term if he was cut loose upon Putz's return.
