Rockies | Roy Oswalt signs

The Colorado Rockies signed free-agent SP Roy Oswalt (Rangers) to a minor league deal Thursday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Oswalt will build up his innings in extended spring training and could be promoted if he's effective in the minors. A major league call-up isn't guaranteed, though, and it's unclear if the Rockies would consider using him as a starter, although Oswalt probably has no interest in pitching in long relief again. This move involves minimal risk for Colorado, and you should treat it similarly in fantasy baseball. For now, he's only worth a flier in deep NL-only leagues.
