Roy Oswalt Making Rangers Debut Friday

Earlier this week, Texas Rangers president Nolan Ryan said that in a perfect world, Roy Oswalt would get a couple more starts in the minors. Considering the state of the Rangers' injury-riddled rotation, though, there was a chance that Oswalt wouldn't get to make those extra starts.

It looks like Oswalt isn't even going to make one of those starts. From Rangers VP John Blake:

Oswalt recently threw six innings for the Round Rock Express, allowing two runs in what was his most successful minor-league start since signing with the Rangers. Here's what Ryan said after that game:

"There wasn't a wow factor, but he used both sides of the plate," Ryan said. "He threw strikes. He wasn't as sharp as he can be, but he wasn't wild. Ideally, if this was spring training, he'd have two more starts and be ready. But given the circumstances, we'll just have to review everything."

Oswalt's start will be in Texas, where he'll face Christian Friedrich and the Colorado Rockies.
