Yankees following Chad Qualls

Fox Sports writer Jon Paul Morosi is reporting that the Yankees are monitoring Diamondbacks closer Chad Qualls. The D’Backs are currently 20 games out of first in the NL West, and look like they will be sellers at the trade deadline this year.

Qualls is currently the closer in Arizona and has converted 13 of 17 saves this season with a 4.22 ERA. This is his first season as a set closer, and has a career ERA of 3.35.

It is clear that Qualls would be a huge upgrade over Brett Tomko, but I would be a little hesitant for the Yankees to designate him as “the eighth inning guy.”
