Rockies starter Roy Oswalt will begin his rehab on Tuesday with the Rockies’ Grand Junction rookie-league team, reports Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. The 35-year-old has been on the shelf since July 8 with a strained left hamstring. Prior to his injury, he compiled a 7.64 ERA over four starts spanning 17.2 innings.

The Rockies signed Oswalt to a Minor League deal on May 2 with a Major League salary of $2.3 million. Their hope is that Oswalt can use the remainder of this season and the off-season to recover and compete for a rotation spot next spring. Manager Walt Weiss was quoted in the Saunders column as saying, “We still think he can perform. I know his numbers aren’t what he would like them to be, but there is still a lot left.”
