The Arizona Diamondbacks picked up the $6.5 million contract option of closer J.J. Putz on Saturday, according to

If the team did not pick up the option, Putz would have been owed $1.5 million.

Putz saved 32 games in 37 opportunities this season with a 2.82 ERA.

After a slow start in which Putz had ERAs of 4.70 and 7.71 in April and May, he turned the corner in June with a 2.25 ERA and did not allow a run in July or August.

Only thing harder than achieving excellence is maintaining it.
Dream Well. It may come true.
