Rays Interested In Chad Qualls

The Rays are interested in Diamondbacks reliever Chad Qualls, tweets Jon Paul Morosi, but there's an "if."  The Rays would like Qualls to show at least a little consistency first.

Qualls has a brutal 8.49 ERA in 35 innings this year, though his strikeout and groundball rates are strong.  The 32-year-old righty has managed to allow 59 hits in 35 innings, which can't all be attributed to bad luck.  Qualls' stock is low enough that interim GM Jerry Dipoto would do well just to free up some of the $1.59MM left on his contract.
