The Texas Rangers had Roy Oswalt throw a bullpen session for them on Friday, revealing the Rangers as the another team that saw him pitch.

In the last two weeks, Oswalt has thrown for the Philadelphia Phillies and the Boston Red Sox.

Ken Rosenthal revealed that Oswalt threw for Texas, but reportedly, the Rangers are still not sold on the idea of adding the veteran:

Not only is there not a need for him in the starting staff, but there's also no need for Oswalt in the bullpen. They have a deep bullpen that will be able to hold up over the season without Oswalt.

Rosenthal speculated on a possible scenario to get Oswalt into the starting rotation, stating that the Rangers "could create room for Roy O by moving Lewis. No indication they are considering it. No guarantee Oswalt would be better than Lewis."

This might be the only way that Oswalt finds a spot on the Rangers, and even this is highly speculative. The chances that Oswalt lands in Texas are becoming slimmer and slimmer with every day that passes.

It is only a matter of time before Oswalt is pitching at the MLB level; it likely will not be with the Rangers, however.
