Roy Oswalt will be missing his scheduled start on Monday as he will be in Houston getting his back looked at.
The Texas Rangers are making a lineup change when they begin their three-game series on Monday against the Boston Red Sox. Roy Oswalt was suppose to start on Monday but he has been scratched from his start due to back stiffness, according to Fort Worth-Star Telegraph's Jeff Wilson.
Oswalt will be in Houston to see a doctor to take a look at his backs. The injury is not said to be serious, but there is a possibility that it could land him on the disabled list. The Rangers are not taking Oswalt's back stiffness lightly since he has had issues over the past few seasons regarding his back.
With Oswalt not taking the mound on Monday, the Rangers will have Scott Feldman starting in his place against Red Sox.
