Oswalt’s heading back to Texas

Tweet [1]

The Rangers have reportedly agreed to a deal with free agent pitcher Roy Oswalt. [2] The longtime Astros starter will likely follow the Andy Pettitte route, making a handful of minor league appearances before officially joining the Texas staff.

I never got the sense the Yankees were particularly interested in Oswalt — not this winter, and not this season when the rotation grew a little more thin than expected — but I know he was occasionally a popular topic of discussion around here.
