MLB Free Agency 2012: Roy Oswalt Works Out For Philadelphia Phillies, According To Report

Philadelphia Phillies general manager Reuben Amaro Jr. told MLB.com Wednesday that the team could use additional depth in its starting rotation. On Friday, it was reported that the Phillies have already taken a look at a familiar pitcher who could provide just that.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Roy Oswalt worked out for the Phillies last week and is looking to sign with a major league team sometime soon, perhaps within the next week. Oswalt has also worked out for the Boston Red Sox and is scheduled to pitch for two other teams.

A source told Rosenthal that Oswalt "is in good shape, but not surprisingly, more in spring-training mode than mid-season form."

Oswalt, 34, was 9-10 last year with a 3.69 ERA in 23 starts for the Phillies. He decided not to sign with any team during the offseason in favor of landing a deal partially through the year.
