MLB Free Agents: 3 Teams Not Looking at Roy Oswalt That Should Be

1 of 4

    Roy Oswalt has yet to find a home for the 2012 season, but he could have an answer any day.

    The Texas Rangers may be meeting with the free agent on Monday, but there had also been claims that the Los Angeles Angels are the front-runners. With Chris Carpenter’s ailments, there were also suggestions that Oswalt could possibly be headed to St. Louis.

    Regardless, Oswalt is still without a contract—while there are some clear teams that have been connected to the right-hander, there are others that might want to take a look at him before he’s scooped up.

Atlanta Braves

2 of 4

    The NL East, and Major League Baseball to an extent, has no better pitching staff than that of the Philadelphia Phillies.

    Roy Oswalt could go to their rivals in Atlanta. The Braves have a couple talented starters, but Oswalt would help with their lack of pitching depth. He would provide veteran leadership for a team that will look to regain a spot in the postseason.

Miami Marlins

3 of 4

    The Miami Marlins have already signed big names this year, and Roy Oswalt could be another nice addition. He would also be a good backup in the event Josh Johnson has more injury problems or if Carlos Zambrano doesn’t come through.

    Miami is building itself on stars, and Oswalt would certainly fit in that way.

Los Angeles Dodgers

4 of 4

    The Dodgers have new ownership and a bright outlook on the 2012 season so far. Their starting rotation could use some improvement, which is where Roy Oswalt comes in.

    Oswalt would need a month or two before he officially gets on the mound in a major-league game, but would be a huge help during the second half of the season. He wouldn’t be a long-term answer for the Dodgers, but a one-year deal would work.
