Free-agent pitcher Roy Oswalt is beginning to near his decision on where he will play in 2012.
From Jon Heyman of CBS Sports:

Baltimore currently sits at 28-17 and on top of the AL East by just one game over the Tampa Bay Rays. The O's arguably have been the biggest surprise of the 2012 season, and it seems like they're here to stay.
The addition of the former three-time All-Star Oswalt would really help to stabilize a very young rotation, and the team's commitment to the 2012 season would help to show fans that they're serious about winning.
We'll just have to wait and see how this story develops, but the Orioles could potentially be serious players in the Roy Oswalt sweepstakes.
