Qualls hurting

Closer Chad Qualls may, or may not, be available for Monday night’s game against the Dodgers.

The right-hander has been experiencing some stiffness in his forearm and manager A.J. Hinch told us before the game that he had given Qualls four straight days off in an attempt to take care of the issue.

As of batting practice, Hinch was not sure whether Qualls would be available for Monday night’s game or not.

“His forearm has been sore the last couple of days,” Hinch said. “He was a little bit sore and I think at this time of the season there’s just no reason to push it so we kind of have a scheduled plan to give him three or four days off. Now he’s on day four.”

Hinch didn’t sound overly alarmed, but certainly it’s something we’ll have to keep an eye on.
