Minor League Deal Options For 2014: Roy Oswalt

Roy Oswalt seemed done entering his age 35 season in the Major Leagues coming off of another back injury but he still signed a minor league deal with the Colorado Rockies giving it one more shot. Can lightning strike in the same place twice and this time the Yankees stash him in AAA until mid season? Will Oswalt sign with anybody for his age 36 season, let alone the Yankees? Why not?

The Yankees always seem to stash someone in the same situation as Oswalt every season, see Freddy Garcia, and Oswalt may be the most attractive choice for the Yankees this off season. The only thing getting in the way is whether Oswalt wants to continue playing or wants to finally hang up the cleats after putting up an ERA over five in two straight injury riddled seasons. If Oswalt wants to sign for 2014, even if he wants to take the first half of the season off, get this man in pinstripes. He could do wonders for the prospects down in Scranton and could really provide some veteran leadership in the major leagues if it comes to that next season.
