Colorado Rockies Likely To Show Interest In Former Philadelphia Phillies Pitcher Roy Oswalt

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.
