As negotiations with Yu Darvish appear to be going well, the Rangers continue to make inquiries on veteran right-hander Roy Oswalt, a major league official told Gerry Fraley of The Dallas Morning News. Bob Garber, who represents Oswalt, declined to comment.
Earlier today, we learned that the Yankees are in contact with Oswalt as well as Hiroki Kuroda. The Red Sox also remain interested in the 34-year-old but, like the Yankees, are looking to cap their spending. The Cardinals have also been linked to Oswalt but could be eyeing him for a relief role rather than a guaranteed spot in the rotation.
