    From Ken Rosenthal’s latest FOX Sports notebook: Don’t be surprised if the Diamondbacks trade right-hander J.J. Putz following their addition of former White Sox closer Addison Reed. Putz is signed for $7 million in 2014, and the D-backs most likely would be required to accept a comparable salary in return. Rosenthal suggests that Yankees outfielder…
