Oswalt remains unsigned; Philly return possible
CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Roy Oswalt remains a free agent, and his agent said Thursday that Oswalt might wait to sign until later in the season.

Don't be surprised if the Phillies make a run at him, if they need him.

While there are multiple reports Oswalt's top two choices are the Cardinals and Rangers, a source told MLB.com on Thursday that Oswalt also is very interested in returning to Philadelphia. It is not a stretch to think that if something happens to one of the Phils' starters that Philadelphia general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. would sign Oswalt as a replacement.

Amaro did it once before, signing Pedro Martinez during the middle of the 2009 season.
