J.J. Putz: Agrees To Extension Through 2014
Update: Putz agreed to a one-year extension through 2014 with the Diamondbacks on Monday, the team's official Twitter page reports.

Recommendation: Arizona picked up Putz's option for this upcoming season back in October, and now he's signed on through the 2014 campaign. The 35-year-old right-hander has posted a sub-2.84 ERA in three consecutive seasons and has shown the ability to strike batters out at a high rate the last two years as the team's closer. Barring a real rough stretch, look for Putz to hold that position for the next couple of years.
