Qualls, Heilman get 1-year deals
Qualls gets $4,185,000, while Heilman's deal is for $2.15 million.
Qualls was 2-2 with 24 saves in 29 opportunities and a 3.63 ERA as Arizona's closer last year, when he made $2,535,000. His season ended when he dislocated his left kneecap while deflecting a line drive on the final play against Houston on Aug. 30. He got the save in that game.
Heilman was acquired from the Chicago Cubs for two minor leaguers last November. He was 4-4 with a save and a 4.11 ERA with the Cubs last season in 70 appearances. He earned $1,625,000.
