Rockies | Roy Oswalt has another nice outing

Colorado Rockies SP Roy Oswalt allowed three runs and seven hits while striking out five and walking none over seven innings with Double-A Tulsa Tuesday, June 4, although he allowed two home runs. Oswalt feels strong after making his third start for Tulsa. He's giving up 14 hits while walking four and striking out 14 in 18 innings, and he'll likely make one more start for Tulsa. Oswalt can opt out of his minor league deal on June 18 and June 28 if he's not on the major league roster.

Fantasy Tip: The Rockies will have to make a decision soon on Oswalt. Jon Garland is the obvious choice to be demoted from the rotation to make room for Oswalt. Oswalt doesn't have the stuff anymore to miss major league bats consistently, though. He'll be mainly an NL-only acquisition.
