Phillies Scouted Chad Qualls

The Phillies sent a scout to watch D'Backs closer Chad Qualls this weekend, according to Ed Price of MLB Fanhouse. The 30-year-old righty makes $2.5MM this year and won't be a free agent until after next season, so he should command good prospects in any trade, especially considering how well he's pitched this year. 

Qualls has 17 saves and has struck out 33, walking only five. He uses a fastball-slider combination to induce more grounders than fly balls, which would play well at homer-friendly Citizens Bank park.
