The Minnesota Twins are among the teams that is said to have expressed interest in Houston Astros’ starting pitcher Roy Oswalt, according to the Houston Chronicle.â†µ
The St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies are potential trade partners for the Astros as well.â†µ
Oswalt (6-11, 3.12 ERA) has apparently told teams wishing to deal for him that he wants his 2012 option. . .a cool $16 million. . .to be picked up before he’ll accept any trade. As Oswalt has a full no-trade cause in his contract, he would have to sign off on any deal the Astros would make for him.
