According to Peter Gammons, senior Fox baseball analyst, Roy Oswalt has told the Toronto Blue Jays he is not interested in signing a contract with the team.
Gammons provided this information via Twitter.
Analysis: This was a long shot anyway so the news is not a huge surprise. It is unfortunate however as this is the perfect year for a stop gap option in the rotation with an obvious need for a veteran innings eater and most of the prospect SPs still needing some more minor league seasoning.
Maybe a guy like Deck McGuire could make the team out of camp with a strong spring training. Or perhaps another unknown like Henderson Alvarez will pitch his way into the big league rotation.
