It was announced today that the Diamondbacks will receive reliever Matt Gorgen from the Rays as the PTBNL for sending them Chad Qualls. Gorgen played for the AA Montgomery Biscuits this season, was tied for the Southern League in saves at 22 and put up 1.65 ERA, allowing 21 walks while striking out 47. He did miss about a month of the season with tendinitis, starting in July. The Montgomery Advertiser picked Gorgen as their team MVP. Before the season started, Minor League Ball had him as the #20 prospect in the Rays organization. Rays Prospects had him at #14, and they discuss his drop in command towards the end of last season.
Since being traded to the Rays, Chad Qualls has appeared in 16 games and allowed 9 earned runs for an ERA of 6.57.
