Phillies sign RHP Qualls

The Phillies are continuing their minor tweaking of the bull pen, adding more depth to an already deep group of pitchers.

According to Todd Zolecki, the Phillies signed right-handed reliever Chad Qualls to $1.15 million deal.

Qualls, 33, will give the Phillies a top option in the late innings and could become Jonathan Papelbon’s set-up man. He pitched 66 of his 76 games last season in the last three innings.

Qualls was 6-8 with a 3.51 ERA in 76 games with the San Diego Padres. He struck out 43 batters in 74 1/3 innings.
