Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - The Texas Rangers have apparently made the
successful bid to bring Roy Oswalt back to the majors.
A source familiar with the effort told the Morning News on Tuesday that the
two-time defending AL champs inked the free-agent right-hander. However, the
paper said no contract terms were available.
Oswalt, 34, went 9-10 with a 3.69 earned run average in 23 starts last season
for the Phillies. He spent time on the disabled list on two occasions for
inflammation in his back.
For his career, the native of Mississippi has gone 159-93 with a 3.21 ERA in
339 appearances, all but 13 of those starts, for Houston (2001-10) and
Texas is in need of a reliable starter since Neftali Feliz went on the
disabled list nine days ago due to a sprained ligament in his right elbow.
