Houston Astros RP Chad Qualls (back) said his back injury is not serious and does not expect to be placed on the 15-day disabled list. He said he had a similar injury earlier this season and it was no big deal. He does not think he will be available to pitch Thursday, Aug. 21.
Fantasy Tip: Qualls probably will sit out a few games because of the injury but should be back in the near future. Jose Veras probably is the leading candidate to close out games while Qualls is sidelined.

Chicago Cubs RP Jose Veras (oblique) is scheduled to start his rehab assignment with Double-A Tennessee very soon, but it's unknown if he'll return as the team's closer when he's ready. RP Hector Rondon has emerged as a closer candidate with Veras out, and the other options are RPs Pedro Strop and Justin Grimm.
Fantasy Tip: Veras doesn't belong on a mixed league roster right now unless you're using him up in a DL spot. When he's ready to return, he'll probably have to prove that he deserves a shot in the ninth inning again and by then, one of the other relievers on roster may have staked a claim.
