Colorado Rockies May Have Interest In RHP Roy Oswalt

The MLB Hot Stove has begun to heat up as teams around the league begin to scope the free agent market.

The Colorado Rockies are no exception, having already shown interest in the Atlanta Braves' 2B Martin Prado, and now Thomas Hardy of MLB.com is reporting the Rockies may pursue starting pitcher Roy Oswalt:

The Rockies' search for an innings-eater at the top of their rotation could lead them to pursue free-agent right-hander Roy Oswalt ... The Rockies' brain trust is in Scottsdale, Ariz., for a summit this week, and exploring Oswalt is among the many subjects.

Last year, Roy Oswalt was a limited member of one of the greatest rotations last year, serving two separate stints on the DL.

Oswalt finished the season with a 3.69 ERA and 3.44 FIP, pitching 139 innings over 23 starts. He turns 35 next August, but has never had major injury concerns in the past.
