Rangers Unlikely To Sign Roy Oswalt

It's February 2nd, 2012 and all eyes are on Roy Oswalt to make a decision. The 34-year-old is taking his time to do so, because he wants to be a starting pitcher for either the Texas Rangers or St. Louis Cardinals. At the same time, the veteran pitcher also wants a one-year, $10 million deal. The money isn't there, obviously, and according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the market may not be either.

A source tells Wilson that Oswalt is "not likely" to land with the Rangers, because he isn't willing to pitch in relief. As we know, the Rangers just spent over $100 million on Yu Darvish and are moving Neftali Feliz from the closer role into the rotation. The club doesn't have room for yet another starting pitcher right now, but they would have liked Oswalt for depth in case of injury.

If the Rangers are out of the running, the Cardinals are the only other team on Oswalt's "wish list" and they aren't looking to hand out a $10 million deal. It's your move, Roy.
