    Neftali Feliz, Derek Holland, and Alexi Ogando are on the disabled list, Roy Oswalt is scuffling in the minors, and Scott Feldman is 0-6 with a 6.50 ERA, so the Rangers have decided to dip down to Double-A for their latest rotation reinforcement. Justin Grimm will be called up from Double-A to make his big-league…

  2. Roy Oswalt struggles again

    Roy Oswalt

    Roy Oswalt had a hard time in his last start at Triple-A Round Rock.  Last night he took it down a notch, pitching for Double-A Frisco. And the results were actually worse. Oswalt allowed three runs on five hits and two walks over just 3 1/3 innings. He also threw a wild pitch. It took him…

  3. Rangers’ rotation takes another hit as Alexi Ogando goes on the disabled list

    Jun 12, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    As expected Alexi Ogando‘s groin injury has led him to the disabled list, where he joins Rangers starters Neftali Feliz and Derek Holland, the latter of whom he replaced in the rotation last week. There’s no word yet on who’ll fill in for Ogando, but the Rangers called up left-hander Michael Kirkman from Triple-A and…

  4. Roy Oswalt moving from Triple-A to Double-A for next start

    Jun 11, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Roy Oswalt

    Roy Oswalt‘s second minor-league start involved giving up a grand slam to Royals stud prospect Wil Myers on the way to allowing five runs in four innings at Triple-A. He’ll move down a level to Double-A for his third tune-up outing tomorrow night and if things go well he could be on the verge of…

  5. Alexi Ogando strains groin after three hitless innings

    Jun 10, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Apparently it’s the new in thing; get a no-hitter going and then exit with a groin strain. Of course, Alexi Ogando today was only three innings along in his outing against the Giants, not six innings like Kevin Millwood on Friday. And Ogando wasn’t going to last all that much longer anyway; the 28-year-old was…

  6. Roy Oswalt got shelled last night

    Jun 8, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Roy Oswalt

    The Rangers could use Roy Oswalt now. Yesterday even. He just can’t pitch like he did yesterday: dude gave up five runs on six hits over four innings including a grand slam by Royals’ prospect Wil Myers in the Round Rock-Omaha game. Here’s video of the Myers grand slam. To be fair, Myers is gonna do…

  7. Alexi Ogando moving back into Rangers’ rotation to replace injured Derek Holland

    Texas’ rotation took another hit today, as the Rangers placed Derek Holland on the disabled list with “left shoulder fatigue.” He’s also lost 15 pounds in the past two weeks while dealing with a stomach virus. To replace Holland on the roster they called up hard-throwing relief prospect Tanner Scheppers from Triple-A, where the 2009…

  8. Roy Oswalt can’t get ready fast enough for the Rangers

    Jun 5, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Scott Feldman pitches against the Detroit Tigers during the third inning in Game 2 of their MLB American League Championship Series baseball playoffs in Arlington

    While the Rangers wait for Roy Oswalt to build up the arm strength needed to join the rotation they’re using Scott Feldman as the fill-in for Neftali Feliz and … well, it ain’t pretty. Feldman failed to make it out of the second inning last night against the A’s, allowing eight runs to an offense…

  9. Roy Oswalt goes two scoreless in Triple-A start

    Jun 2, 2012, 8:19 PM EDT

    Roy Oswalt

    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…

  10. Rangers unsure which role Neftali Feliz will fill once healthy

    Neftali Feliz Getty

    Neftali Feliz is expected to miss the remainder of the first half with a sprained elbow, so whenever Roy Oswalt is ready to join the Rangers there will be an open spot in the rotation waiting for him. As for what happens when Oswalt is starting every fifth day and Feliz is ready to return…

    We heard yesterday that, despite an offer being on the table, the Dodgers and Roy Oswalt were “far apart” on a deal.  This morning Jon Heyman says, never fear, something will happen soon.

    Roy Halladay

    After leaving Sunday’s game after two innings due to a sore shoulder, Roy Halladay said the pain dates back to Tuesday’s outing, a loss to the Nationals. Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee, however, admitted it went back further than that. “Yeah, it’s been an issue,” Dubee said. “It’s been there. It’s been lingering. Some days…

  19. The Orioles are sniffing around Roy Oswalt

    May 24, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Roy Oswalt Getty

    Figuratively, of course. Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles have right-hander Roy Oswalt on their “radar.”  Oswalt, of course, has the Cardinals and Rangers on his radar because he wants to be where he’s comfortable. The reality, of course, is that neither of those teams are particularly interested. If Oswalt is going to pitch for…

    FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported last Saturday in his weekly “Full Count” video that the Cardinals and Red Sox had begun showing renewed interest in free agent right-hander Roy Oswalt.

    Detroit Tigers' manager Jim Leyland looks on during a practice in preparation for the MLB American League Championship Series baseball playoffs in Arlington, Texas

    Doug Fister got DL’d. But don’t worry: that’s the kind of problem the Tigers pay Jim Leyland the big bucks to address. So Jim, what’s the plan here, dude? “I have no clue who’s gonna start, absolutely none,” Leyland said Sunday morning. “Villarreal has joined the team and we will have a starter at the…
