Roy Oswalt exited his Friday start against the Marlins after six innings because of lower back soreness, but it looks like the injury will prove to be a minor one.

Oswalt felt good enough to throw a 40-pitch bullpen session today and afterward indicated to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com that he’ll make his scheduled Thursday start against the Padres in San Diego.

Oswalt has a history of back problems, so this qualifies as very good news for the Phillies. He tweaked his back running out a grounder and took the mound for the next half-inning, but then exited with a trainer before throwing another pitch.

    Where are the haters from the other thread saying he’s done, he’s old and he wouldn’t be able to recover.
