Roy Oswalt Struggles Again

With Derek Holland and Neftali Feliz already on the disabled list, the Texas Rangers are hoping that the recently-signed Roy Oswalt would help patch together a rotation that has seen 40% of its members hit the disabled list already this year

If Oswalt's latest start is any indication, he's still not ready to help the Rangers. On Tuesday night in Frisco, Oswalt gave up three runs in three and a third innings of work, surrendering five hits and walking one. Oswalt struck out three.

The start was Oswalt's third for the Rangers. His other two starts were at AAA. Through six AAA innings, Oswalt has allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks, while striking out five.

Yes, these starts should be treated like spring training starts, since that's essentially what it is for Oswalt. No, we shouldn't take too much stock in the results, but it's still concerning to see Oswalt struggling to get inferior talent out.

The Rangers may still look to add a starter by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
