J.J.Putz Demoted, Bobby Parnell Will Setup

Adam Rubin is now reporting that J..J. Putz has lost his eighth-inning role to Bobby Parnell.

He was informed during a meeting with Jerry Manuel on Wednesday.

Manuel hoped the change would be temporary, until Putz rediscovers himself. Putz will be the primary seventh-inning reliever.

“Hopefully this is a small, small window for him to get right,” Manuel said. “This is not long term.”
