Making his 2012 debut after signing with the Rangers earlier this week, Roy Oswalt threw 34 pitches in two scoreless innings for Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.

Oswalt gave up a single, a walk and an infield single to start the game, but he got out of that jam with a strikeout and a double-play ball. He gave up another single in the second before finishing his outing.

According to Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News, Oswalt was at 91-92 mph consistently with his fastball. That would qualify as a nice surprise even if the gun was a little fast. Oswalt averaged 91.4 mph with his fastball with the Phillies last season, down from 93-94 mph in his prime.

Oswalt is likely to make at least three more minor league starts before joining the Rangers.

    3 more starts to get in shape for the 60 day disabled list.

    as a tiger fan from toledo who took a 12 hour trip to north Carolina that took 16 hours, it is something i am glad to hear, tigers needed starting pitching and i still feel dirks is still the best trade value they have….i knew oswalt would be considered but with porcello struggling to get quality starts id figure a trade would be long term towards late july….not seeing how oswalt thrown it gives dombowski an easier relief about not getting him in the off season
