The Texas Rangers have signed three-time All-Star pitcher Roy Oswalt to a minor-league contract, according to MLB.com. The move will mostly help the Rangers replace Neftali Feliz. Feliz went on the disabled list last week with a sprained right elbow.

Oswalt, 34, would need at least 2-4 weeks before he is ready to pitch in a game, according to the report. The Red Sox, Orioles, Phillies and Dodgers each showed interest in Oswalt over the past couple of months.

Oswalt went 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA last season with the Phillies. In 11 seasons with the Phillies and Houston Astros, Oswalt hasa a career record of 159-93 with a 3.21 ERA. He has won 20 games twice while with the Astros.
