(ARLINGTON, Texas) — The Texas Rangers have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with pitcher Roy Oswalt. Still, the deal, worth around $5 million, is pending Oswalt’s physical on Thursday.
The general manager of Triple-A Round Rock Jon Daniels says Oswalt will make his first start Saturday.
Oswalt, 34, landed on the disabled list twice last-season with the Philadelphia Phillies, both times due to lower-back inflammation.
During the 2011 regular season, Oswalt started 23 games, posting a 9-10 record, with 3.69 ERA, recording 93 strikeouts and 33 walks.
