Rangers will consider Oswalt
General manager Jon Daniels said the Rangers will consider signing pitcher Roy Oswalt in the wake of Neftali Feliz’s elbow injury.
“Everything is on the table,” Daniels said Monday.
Right now Scott Feldman will start on Wednesday and is considered to be the leading candidate to replace Feldman. Alexi Ogando is also a candidate but is not stretched out like Feldman. The Rangers aren’t ready to promote either Martin Perez or Neil Ramirez from Triple A.
The Rangers watched Oswalt throw last week. They also know he needs more time and would not be ready to immediately step into the rotation. But he could add depth in case the Rangers have another rotation injury down the road.
Feliz will likely be out through the All-Star break. He is not going to throw for at least four weeks and maybe longer.
