Roy Oswalt To Make Announcement On His Future

Teams have opened spring training camps and the first games are in about 10 days.

And one of the presumed premier free agents, Roy Oswalt, is still unsigned.

Thursday, we are going to get some sort of announcement from Oswalt, says Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston:

His agent, Bob Garber, sent me an email Wednesday night that Oswalt will have an announcement Thursday. Red Sox sources said they didn’t know what the announcement entailed.

The Red Sox have been rumored as a team interested in Oswalt. However, that interest has not been mutual; Oswalt has been said to not want to play that far from his home in Texas.

Edes speculates:

… unless Oswalt feels healthy enough to give a team between 180 to 200 innings, he might be a great candidate to follow the example of former Astros teammate Roger Clemens, who in both 2006 (Astros) and 2007 (Yankees) didn’t sign until May and gave them seasons of 113 and 99 1/3 innings, respectively.

That’s certainly a possibility. The only other logical assumption is that Oswalt will announce his retirement. As always, we await developments.
