Report: Decision day for Roy Oswalt?
By Richard Durrett
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Our colleague Gordon Edes, at ESPNBoston.com, reports that Roy Oswalt's agent says the pitcher will have an announcement today. And Garber emailed ESPNDallas.com as well today to say that Oswalt will make an announcement, though it's not clear what time.
Oswalt remains the biggest starting pitcher on the free-agent market. The Texas Rangers have shown interest in the veteran, meeting with him over lunch last month in Arlington. But the club does not want to alter its current rotation and force one of its young pitchers (like Matt Harrison, for instance) to the bullpen to make room for Oswalt at this point.
