J.J. Putz throws simulated game

Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz threw 26 pitches in a simulated game Saturday and could be activated from the disabled list next week, the Arizona Republic reports.

“I’m optimistic he’s close to coming back,” manager Kirk Gibson told the Republic.

Putz has been on the disabled list since Aug. 24 due to a dislocated pinkie finger on his right hand.
