Rangers “unlikely” to sign free agent Roy Oswalt

Roy Oswalt’s options seem to be dwindling.

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington told reporters on Wednesday that it’s “unlikely” his team adds a starting pitcher before spring training, and now the Rangers are saying much of the same.

A source explained to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Thursday evening that the Rangers already feel like they have an adequate starting rotation for 2012 and don’t want to move left-hander Matt Harrison to the bullpen to clear room.

The Cardinals might still be alive as a potential landing spot, but Oswalt did not appreciate their initial offer. Picky, picky.
