Reports: Oswalt seeking one year; Kuroda nearing a deal

Jerry Crasnick reported this afternoon that Roy Oswalt is now seeking a one-year deal — backing off hopes for a three-year contract — with plans of proving he’s healthy.

In theory, Oswalt seems to fit the Yankees needs — a bigger, more expensive version of last year’s Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon deals — but the Yankees interest is already being shot down, and even Oswalt’s agent denies recent conversations with the Yankees.

Another potential short-term rotation addition is Hiroki Kuroda, and Tim Brown has heard he’s on the verge of a deal with an unknown team. Of course, the Yankees are one of the teams that told Brown it’s “not us.”
