|Roy Oswalt to join rotation Thursday|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/18/13) The Rockies officially announced that Roy Oswalt will start Thursday against the Nationals, according to the Denver Post.
Oswalt, who signed with the Rockies in May, made five starts at Double-A Tulsa, posting a 2.16 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 33 1/3 innings of work. This will be his first start since Sept. 9 for the Rangers.

(6/17/13) Rockies pitcher Roy Oswalt could make his season debut this week, according to the Denver Post.
There's a chance Oswalt will pitch against the Nationals Thursday. Oswalt has been throwing rehab starts in the minors, and managed to go 8 1/3 innings Saturday. If Oswalt is promoted, either Juan Nicasio or Jeff Francis would be the odd man out of the rotation. Oswalt has a 2.16 ERA through 33 1/3 innings in the minors this year.

(6/15/13) Rockies starter Roy Oswalt made a start with Double-A Tulsa Friday and pitched well, the Denver Post reports.
Oswalt did not give up a run on just five hits over 8 1/3 innings. He threw 102 pitches and 60 were strikes with seven Ks. He has a 2.16 ERA over four rehab starts. It looks like Oswalt will join the Colorado rotation Wednesday against Toronto.

(6/11/13) Rockies pitcher Roy Oswalt will likely be promoted soon, according to the Denver Post.
Oswalt has pitched well in 25 minor-league innings this year. He has a 2.88 ERA at Double-A. The team wants Oswalt to be stretched out before calling him up, so they will wait until he makes one more minor-league start, which could come Friday.
Oswalt threw 95 pitches during his last minor-league appearance and reportedly touched 95 mph on the radar gun.
|Rockies continuing to evaluate Roy Oswalt|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/6/13) With Roy Oswalt's opt-out date in his contract (June 18) getting closer, the Rockies continue to evaluate whether or not to promote the veteran right-hander to the major-league roster, according to The Denver Post. On Wednesday, Rockies pitching coach Jim Wright spoke with Oswalt and Double-A Tulsa pitching coach Darryl Scott and said Oswalt is in a good place.
Oswalt is 2-1 with a 3.50 ERA through three starts for Tulsa and has won his last two. He allowed three runs on seven hits in seven innings in his latest start Tuesday.
"No walks is the big thing, and he kept the ball on the ground with 11 groundball outs," Wright said. "He's still building up a little bit. His velocity should hit a little valley, then come back up."
Beavan, Mariners edge Rangers
Michael Saunders hit a solo home run in the second inning, former Texas prospect Blake Beavan threw seven shutout innings against his former club, and the Seattle Mariners kept the Rangers from extending their lead in the AL West with a 1-0 win on Saturday night.
Oswalt diagnosed with right forearm strain
Texas Rangers right-hander Roy Oswalt has been diagnosed with a right forearm strain and won't throw for several days.
Upton hits 3 HRs, Rays blank Rangers
B.J. Upton hit three home runs, James Shields threw a two-hitter and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Texas Rangers 6-0 on Sunday.
|Roy Oswalt got a bit of a raw deal in 2012, bouncing around between starter and reliever with no set role. He finished the year with a 5.80 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. There's very little to cull from Oswalt's 59-inning performance last season, outside of the fact that he likely made the wrong choice with which team to join. The owner of a 3.21 ERA leading into last year, Oswalt, 35, can still pitch, but he's probably better off in the National League and with a team that has room for him in the rotation, so he doesn't have to wonder what his role will be. If he signs with a team by Draft Day, Oswalt is a single-league only play in the later rounds. If he's still playing the "I will decide soon which team to pitch for" game, leave him undrafted. Without a role, Oswalt is not worth the roster spot. (Updated 1/8/13)|
