Rangers' Roy Oswalt Won't Make Monday Start

Despite having one start (out of five) where he was cuffed around, Roy Oswalt has been a big boost to the Texas Rangers’ rotation.

They’ll have to go at least one time through the rotation without him due to his back issues recurring. ESPN Dallas:

Texas Rangers pitcher Roy Oswalt will miss his scheduled start Monday with tightness in his lower back. The 34-year-old right-hander will visit a doctor in Houston on Monday, but is not expected to be placed on the disabled list.

“Prior to signing Roy he expressed to us what exactly is happening now,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said. “Sometimes this acts up with his lower back. If it’s the same thing he’s had in the past, and he expects it is, he believes he’ll make his next start. We’ve got to wait and see, but that’s our hope at this point.”

Scott Feldman will make the Monday start in Oswalt’s absence.
