Diamondbacks, Qualls agree to 1-year deal
Qualls went 4-8 with nine saves and a 2.81 ERA in 2008, his first season with the Diamondbacks. He was acquired from Houston in a deal involving former Arizona closer Jose Valverde, who had 44 saves for the Astros last year.
The only Diamondbacks player remaining in arbitration is first baseman-outfielder Conor Jackson, who asked for $3.65 million and was offered $2.45 million by the club. He made $419,500 last year.
