Roy Oswalt Rumors: Reports Conflict About St. Louis Cardinals And Free Agent Oswalt

The St. Louis Cardinals are rumored to be among the teams interested in the services of free agent SP Roy Oswalt. Oswalt was expected to announce his decision on Thursday, and he has reportedly told the interested MLB clubs that he will wait until midseason to sign with a team. However, it appears a number of sources still conflict as to whether the Cardinals are in the competition for the 34-year-old's services.

According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals may have a decent shot at nabbing the Wizard of Os:

Meanwhile, Tim McKernan of The Fan 590 AM reports the Cardinals are seemingly out of the Oswalt race:

The Jerry Crasnick report -- that Oswalt will wait until midseason -- appears to corroborate McKernan's source, but only time will tell. Oswalt pitched 139 innings in 2011, twice going to the DL with back issues. He sports a career 3.21 ERA and is perhaps the top free agent pitcher remaining on the market.
