Putz Trouble Brewing?

An All-Star in 2007 when he saved 40 games, Putz was 6-5 with a 3.88 ERA and 15 saves in 23 chances last season, when he missed long stretches with ribcage and elbow injuries. His agent, Craig Landis, said Putz wants to remain a closer.

“He’s one of the top five or 10 closers in the game,” Landis said. “No, he would not want to be a set-up man.”

I am sure this will be brought up by the local beat guys. Putz really has no choice since he is under the Mets control till the end of 2010. I wonder what the motivation is behind Landis bringing this up just after the trade? I would think it was addressed before the deal was finalized.
