Rangers watch Roy Oswalt throw

The Texas Rangers watched free agent right-handed pitcher Roy Oswalt throw on Friday, but the club was just doing its due diligence, according to a source.

The source added that “nothing has changed” with the club’s situation in regards to Oswalt, meaning the team doesn’t need an additional starter at this time. That doesn’t mean something couldn’t change, but with all five pitchers in the rotation still healthy and Scott Feldman, who won 17 games as a starter in 2009 as the long reliever, the Rangers have depth at the position.

Oswalt, 34, is still looking for a job and, according to reports, wants to pitch at some point in June. Several reports say he’s worked out for the Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox recently with hopes of signing a deal soon.

Oswalt met with the Rangers over the offseason, but the club determined they didn’t need his services at that time. As of now, nothing has changed in that regard.
