Roy Oswalt suffered a setback in his quest to recover from a strained left hamstring. Troy Renck reports that the veteran right-hander had to quit a simulated game after two batters. Oswalt, who has been out since July 8, said “it’s going to take a couple more weeks”, effectively moving his earliest return date to mid-August. Oswalt posted a 7.64 ERA in 17 and two-thirds innings spread out over four starts.

The Rockies could use some rotation help if and when Oswalt returns. They own the National League’s fourth-worst aggregate starting pitching ERA at 4.47. Collin McHugh and Chad Bettis each started for the club recently, becoming the ninth and tenth pitchers to make a start in a Rockies uniform this season.

    Please just go away. I’m tired of reading about these inevitable stories about Roy when he has very little to zero value for any club.

    For what, Roy? You to get back to being a last resort?

        You honestly don’t know why she’s posting? She’s trying to make money through affiliate marketing. If you have to ask her why, it’s not her who is the idiot here.

    In a few weeks the season will be over, Roy. You had your time. It’s over.
