Roy Oswalt is set to make his third minor league start en route to his return to the Major Leagues with the Texas Rangers. This third start is going to be at Double-A Frisco on Tuesday. Oswalt's two prior starts have been at Triple-A Round Rock, but his last start was not too impressive as he gave up six hits and five runs.
Oswalt has said that he needed four stats before he felt he could be ready for the Majors. However, that time table may have been moved up as the Rangers suffered an injury to pitcher Alexi Ogando. Ogandoho left Sunday's game against the Giants early with a strained groin when running to first base.
It is possibly that the Rangers may bring up Oswalt after just three minor league starts, or they will have to shuffle their lineup until Oswalt is ready to join the Rangers staff.
