The Colorado Rockies have agreed to a minor-league deal with three-time All-Star pitcher Roy Oswalt.
The team announced the news on its Twitter account Thursday, with Oswalt expected to report to extended spring training.
The 35-year-old Oswalt has a career record of 163-96. He's also 4-0 with a 2.25 ERA at Coors Field.
On his Twitter account, Oswalt tweeted: ''Always loved the mountains, im back!''
Oswalt hasn't pitched in the majors since Oct. 2, when he was with the Texas Rangers. He's also played for Houston and Philadelphia.
The first-place Rockies certainly could use a boost on the mound with righty Jhoulys Chacin on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained lower back.

Texas Rangers Still the Team to Beat in the AL West:
If you were to compare the expectations for the Texas Rangers prior to the start of the season to weather you would have called it cloudy with a chance of rain. That of course means there is a chance of sunshine as well.

The New York Yankees acquired infielder Reid Brignac from the Colorado Rockies for cash, adding a lefty bat to the group of backups filling in for the team's injured stars.
''He played shortstop, second, third. A fly-ball hitter, so we're going to see if we can take advantage of the left-handed bat at Yankee Stadium. He's a very good fielder, more so than a bat...
