Believe it or not, Roy Oswalt is still a free agent and looking to return to the majors. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Oswalt has worked out for several teams within the past week including the Phillies, Red Sox and Rangers. It also appears the right-handed starting pitcher worked out for the first-place Dodgers, according to MLB.com's Peter Gammons.

The problem doesn't seem to be health or however he looks in these private workouts, but his asking price. According to Rosenthal, Oswalt is looking for a pro-rated $7.5 million in base salary. If that is the case, Rosenthal believes the possibility of him making a return in the summer is getting slimmer by the minute.

One team that may be interested now is the Phillies, though. Roy Halladay just exited his start moments ago with right shoulder soreness and the Phillies are a team looking to win now. Will they be willing to pay the high price? We'll see.
