According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, several teams are looking at J.J. Putz for help in the bullpen.
The top team are the Phillies who would love to use him as a back-up to the shaky Brad Lidge. Other teams include the Pirates and the Astros.
Putz was anything but what he was supposed to be with the Mets last season. He went down on the DL and just couldn’t quite get back. He was supposed to be the set-up guy to Francisco Rodriguez.
He was not set-up guy. He just set the Mets up.
Some believe he will be back as a good closer. Well let’s hope he does not go to Philly if that is the case.
