After not having his option picked up by the Philadelphia Phillies, Roy Oswalt figures to be one of the most sought-after free agents this winter. According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Colorado Rockies are likely to be one of the teams most interested in his services:
The Rockies will call his agent. [...] While the Rockies will make a run at him, it's unclear if Oswalt will reciprocate. Before he was traded from Houston to Philadelphia, Oswalt didn't seem interested in waiving his no-trade clause for Colorado
Due to lingering injuries throughout the season, Oswalt was never able to recapture the form that helped him go 7-1 for the Phillies down the stretch of the 2010 season. While Oswalt struggled to a 9-10 record in 2011, he is still an excellent option for the Rockies if he can stay healthy for an entire season.
