News: Qualls (hip) earned his 18th save of the season Monday with a scoreless ninth inning against Cleveland. Impact: Making his first relief appearance for the Astros since Sept. 6 after a nagging hip injury, Qualls permitted a single and struck out a batter in the scoreless frame. The veteran reliever figures to close out the season as Houston's closer, or at least share the role with Josh Fields, who filled in during Qualls' recent absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Qualls (hip) is available to pitch Monday if needed, Howard Chen of CSN Houston reports. Impact: Because of the injury, Qualls has not appeared in a game since September 6. Josh Fields has been filling in as the team's closer in Qualls' absence, leaving the veteran's role as an uncertainty for the final two weeks of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Qualls was unavailable again Wednesday due to a nagging hip injury, reports. "I don't know if it's a tight hip that's putting pressure on a nerve back there," Qualls said. "I get a warm feeling like in a 6-inch [region] down the side of my leg. When I sit down or lay down, it really doesn't hurt, and if I walk around, it gets irritated or something." Impact: With Qualls' discomfort failing to subside over the course of five days, the training staff went ahead and prescribed rest for the 36-year-old right-hander. Josh Fields has collected a pair of saves since Qualls' last appearance and is the clear favorite for opportunities until Qualls returns, but lefty Tony Sipp nailed down a save Wednesday and could see chances depending on the matchups.(RotoWire, )
