Oswalt trade “possible”
The Rangers are talking to other clubs about pitcher Roy Oswalt and an industry source said a trade is “possible” before Friday’s deadline. The Dodgers and the Nationals are among contenders looking for starting pitching down the stretch. Players must be acquired by Friday to be eligible for post-season. The Rangers signed Oswalt earlier this summer as a starting pitcher but he has since been moved to the bullpen. He has made it clear that he wants to be a starter and is not particularly happy about his present situation. Scott Feldman bumped Oswalt from the rotation.
Right now the Rangers “don’t know” if they will be able to move Oswalt but there is a chance. The Rangers are also looking for utility infield help but would likely want more than that for Oswalt.
