Colorado Rockies' pitcher Roy Oswalt, who had a left hamstring strain on July 7, was forced to shut down a simulated game on Saturday  after pitching to only two batters.  As reported by Thomas Harding of MLB.com, ""When I first hurt it, they told me it would be a little while to get back -- it wasn't just a mild strain, It was a pretty significant strain," Oswalt said. "I was hoping to be on the field in five weeks, but it's going to be a little bit later than that."" "Oswalt, 0-4 with a 7.64 ERA before the injury, had hoped to throw Saturday's simulated game at PNC Park, pitch once on a Minor League rehab assignment, and return to the Rockies' rotation. Now it's unclear when he'll be able to throw bullpen sessions, much less return to the mound." Oswalt was not on a Major League roster at the start of the season and signed with the Rockies in May. Although he did not make an appearance until June 20 and is no injured, Oswalt wants to return to the Rockies or another Major League team in spring training next year. Oswalt has struggled the last two seasons and has a record of 0-4 with a 7.64 earned run average this season. He is a three time All-Star with a career record of 163-100 with a 3.32 earned run average in 2,230 2/3 innings pitched.
