Chad Michael Qualls (born August 17, 1978, in Lomita, California) is a relief pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks.


Baseball career



On December 14, 2007, Qualls was dealt to the Arizona Diamondbacks along with Chris Burke and Juan Gutierrez for Jose Valverde.

Qualls replaced Brandon Lyon as the closer for the Diamondbacks in mid-September 2008 after Lyon struggled in the second half of the season.

He is one of four pitchers who have pitched in at least 70 games each of the four seasons from 2004–08, the others being Scott Schoeneweis (who has done so for five seasons), Bob Howry, and Dan Wheeler.[1]


Qualls was named the closer for the Arizona Diamondbacks for the 2009 season. On August 30, 2009, he suffered a patellar dislocation on the final play of a winning effort against the Houston Astros. He will need surgery meaning he will miss the rest of the 2009 season.
