Texas Rangers Sign Pitcher Roy Oswalt, According To Report

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that the Texas Rangers and free-agent right-handed pitcher Roy Oswalt have agreed to a contract, the length and terms of which were undetermined.

Oswalt, who went 9-10 for the Phillies last season in an injury-riddled campaign marked by back inflammation, had been rumored to have spoken to the Rangers and Los Angeles Dodgers in the offseason. According to ESPN, Oswalt had worked out for the Dodgers as recently as last week in his home of Starkville, Miss. However, the Rangers proved to have a stronger need: Texas' move to send Neftali Feliz to the disabled list two weeks ago left the club without a true long reliever when righty Scott Feldman moved to the rotation.

The DMN speculated that Oswalt is likely to make "a few" minor league starts before joining the club.
