Roy Oswalt Intends To Sign Contract Soon

Prince Fielder didn't sign a free-agent contract for a really long time. Then he signed with the Detroit Tigers, and you're used to him as a Tiger. Edwin Jackson didn't sign a free-agent contract for a really long time. Then he signed with the Washington Nationals, and you're used to him as a National, probably. Roy Oswalt never signed a free-agent contract! He just never felt like making a commitment. Men. Am I right?

...but Roy Oswalt is looking to sign a free-agent contract, soon. He's back on your radar, and according to Ken Rosenthal, he could put pen to paper within a week, if players have to actually physically sign contracts nowadays. Maybe it's all about iris recognition software. Anyway, Rosenthal:

Oswalt intends to sign with a team soon, possibly within the next week, and could pitch in the majors by mid- to late June, sources said.

After Oswalt signs, he won't be ready for big-league action right away, but it's not like he's been passing the time making pancakes and eating pancakes. He's in reasonable shape, and it shouldn't take long to get into major-league shape. Oswalt has already worked out for the Phillies and the Red Sox, and will reportedly work out for another two teams that aren't the Yankees or the Tigers. Somebody's going to make a pretty significant mid-season splash.
