Former Trenton High School superstar J.J. Putz has added another year to his contact with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The relief pitcher has agreed to a $13.5 million, two-year contract with the D-backs, a deal that adds a $7 million salary for 2014, according to The Crescent-News.

Arizona exercised Putz's option for $6.5 million in October. He would have been eligible for free agency after the 2013 season.

The 35-year-old right-hander had 32 saves in 37 chances and a 2.82 ERA last year, converting 19 straight save chances from late May through August. He had a 0.84 ERA from June 23 through the end of the season, according to the same source.

Putz has a 33-31 record with 183 saves in 514 big league games for Seattle (2003-08), the New York Mets (2009), the Chicago White Sox (2010) and Arizona (2011-12).

Awesome news! JJ graduated a year after me. It is still great to see Trenton people out there doing so well (and still caring about where they came from).
