Diamondbacks Chad Qualls Drawing Plenty of Interest

Update 5:39 ET:'s Jerry Crasnick reports that it's "unlikely" that the Diamondbacks trade Qualls

Momentum is beginning to build on Diamondbacks reliever Chad Qualls, this according to ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

Olney notes that the D-Backs have been fielding a lot of calls on Qualls, but the team isn't likely to trade him unless they are blow away with an offer.

Two teams that have been looking for relievers are the Dodgers and Marlins, and presumably both would have interest in Qualls.

Qualls has pitched 42.2 innings this year for the D-Backs, and sports a respectable 3.38 ERA to go along with 18 saves.
