Newsday’s Marc Carig tweets that Roy Oswalt’s agent is not aware of any interest from the Mets in his client: Roy Oswalt’s agent, Bob Garber: “I’m not aware of any interest” from the Mets. I have a suspicious feeling that most Met fans will be relieved to hear this. Original Post 2:20 PM The Mets have shown interest in free-agent right-hander Roy Oswalt, and the door has not fully closed even with the addition of Shaun Marcum to round out the projected rotation, a baseball source told ESPN New York. Oswalt, 35, went 4-3 with a 5.80 ERA in 17 appearances (nine starts) in 2012 with the Texas Rangers. He made his season debut June 22 — less than four weeks after signing with the club on a minor league deal. Oswalt worked entirely in relief last September. He made only 23 starts in 2011 because of lower-back inflammation. With Marcum already on board and slated for the rotation, obviously they are viewing Oswalt strictly as a bullpen option.
