PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have designated former closer J.J. Putz for assignment.
    
Putz had a career-high 45 saves while helping Arizona win the NL West title his first season in 2011, but has battled injuries the past two seasons. The Diamondbacks signed Addison Reed during the offseason and moved Putz into a setup role.
    
The 37-year-old went 1-1 with a 6.50 ERA in 18 appearances and spent time on the disabled list with forearm tightness. Putz has 189 saves in 12 seasons, including 83 in four years with the Diamondbacks.
    
Arizona recalled outfielder Ender Inciarte from the seven-day concussion disabled list to fill Putz's spot on the roster. He hit .205 in 34 games with the Diamondbacks this season.
