Nothing is official, but Scott Miller of CBS Sports reports that Roy Oswalt could make his debut for the Rangers on Friday.
Over four starts on two teams in the minors this year, Oswalt has allowed 20 hits and 10 earned runs. Rangers president and CEO Nolan Ryan told the Dallas Morning News that the ideal situation would be to have Oswalt make one or two more starts, but struggles in the Texas rotation could force a promotion sooner.
From the Dallas Morning News:
"Ideally, if this was spring training, he'd have two more starts and be ready. But given the circumstances, we'll just have to review everything."
A Friday start for Oswalt would not be shocking.
