Player Notes
Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow indicated Thursday that the team is unlikely to trade Chad Qualls.

Advice: Teams have expressed interest in the reliever, but Qualls will make a reasonable $6 million through the end of next season and has a $3 million option for 2016, so Luhnow doesn't feel compelled to move him. The 35-year-old boasts a terrific 1.78 ERA and 31/4 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings in 2014. "I hesitate to use the word 'untouchable,' but he likes it here, he's comfortable here and he's pitching well," Luhnow said. "To have a guy who's capable of pitching late in the game, in close games, we're going to have opportunity going forward. This is a team that's improving, and as the team improves, you have more save opportunities, more opportunities to pitch at the end of close games. We need more Chad Qualls. We don't need less."

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Tigers have inquired on Chad Qualls.

Advice: The Tigers have been connected to just about every reliever on the market. Qualls has experienced a nice bounce-back season in Houston, posting a 1.78 ERA and 31/4 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings. A trade would be bad for his fantasy value, as he almost surely would be used as a setup man wherever he goes.
