Chad Qualls is returning to the Houston Astros, his original team.
The right-handed reliever agreed to a two-year contract Saturday with a team option for 2016.
Qualls went 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA in 66 games for the Miami Marlins this year and has made at least 50 appearances in nine straight seasons. He has pitched for eight clubs in his big league career, going 45-37 with 51 saves...

Chad Qualls is athletic enough to pitch, but not to pump his fist.
Qualls, 34, has pitched for the Diamondbacks, Phillies, Yankees, Blue Jays, and many more major league teams since 2004.
Qualls is a qualified and proven middle reliever in baseball. Yet, as proven during yesterday’s game against the Mets, Qualls is certainly no Tiger woods.

Hoo boy. If the sight of Chad Qualls emphatically celebrating a strikeout by pumping his fist and then falling down after he stomps off the mound doesn’t epitomize the current incarnation of the beleaguered ball club that is the Miami Marlins, what does?

Reliever Chad Qualls became the latest victim of that fact Tuesday night, when he botched the execution of his celebratory fist pump and ended up taking a tumble on the infield grass.
Qualls escaped his one inning of relief unscathed — on the stat sheet, at least — but the Marlins were not so lucky. The Mets touched...
On Tuesday, Miami Marlins pitcher Chad Qualls celebrated in a way that only a Marlin would.Qualls got his feet tripped up while celebrating a strikeout of Omar Quintanilla.His attempt at fist bumping proved futile.
Let me set the scene for you here:
Mets outfielder led off the top of the eighth inning with a triple off Marlins reliever Chad Qualls. Qualls proceeded to keep Byrd stranded at third by striking out Omar Quintanilla for the third out of the inning. Qualls got a bit too giddy going for the fist pump while walking toward the dugout and paid for it.
Even when things go right for the Miami Marlins, things go wrong. The team can’t even celebrate correctly, as evidenced by this Chad Qualls fist pump attempt that wound up with the relief pitcher nearly faceplanting straight into the infield grass. To be fair, the Marlins are a little bit rusty when it comes to seeing anything go their way. The post The most Marlins fist pump...
Chad Qualls has, um, struggled this season. But after allowing Wednesday night's game to get out of reach, Phillies fans took to Twitter and his handle @Qualls50 to give him a piece of their minds directly.
There were a couple fans that were nice to him. Most, however, were nasty: (Click to enlarge if you need to)
There were many more, some too nasty for our family...
The signing of Chad Qualls means the Phillies are staring down the barrell of a loaded Luxury Tax gun. Photo: APThe signing of Chad Qualls wasn’t one of the bargain basement signings like Juan Pierre or Joel Pineiro where a Phillies fan can argue if it doesn’t work out, we can stash the journeyman 33 year-old reliever in Triple-A. Instead, the signing of Qualls for $1.15 million...
