General manager Jon Daniels confirmed that the Rangers will consider free-agent right-hander Roy Oswalt as they decide what to do with the rotation vacancy created by the elbow injury to Neftali Feliz.

The Rangers watched Oswalt throw Friday in Mississippi and are believed to be one of three teams with interest in him, along with Philadelphia and Boston.

Daniels said that Oswalt is not ready to pitch in a big-league game.

"We'll consider all our options, whatever's best for the team going forward," Daniels said. "He [Oswalt] is still out there. He hasn't faced hitters yet. He's not an immediate option."
