Rotoworld wrote:Oswalt pulled in fifth versus Padres
An inning after being visited by the trainer, Roy Oswalt was pulled after giving up two runs in the fifth Saturday against the Padres.
Oswalt was very sharp early on, but something appeared to happen when he was warming up for the fourth inning. The trainer and manager Phil Garner came out to see him just two pitches into the inning, and although Oswalt convinced them he should stay in, he just didn't seem the same afterwards. His fastball velocity wasn't where it usually is, and he started throwing his curveball much more frequently. Perhaps it wasn't an arm problem, but we're quite concerned. Aug. 18 - 11:31 pm et
