Rangers unlikely to make waiver deadline moves

Roy Oswalt is expected to stay with the Texas Rangers for the remainder of the season.

The veteran right-hander cleared waivers, but a source said the team isn't expected to make any moves today as the waiver trade deadline ends tonight at 10:59 p.m.

Oswalt was signed in May to be a part of the rotation, but has since been moved into a spot starter/ relief role. He prefers to start, but has said he will do whatever the Rangers ask.

The Rangers were active at the waiver deadline the past two years.

They acquired left-hander Mike Gonzalez and catcher Matt Treanor last season, and both were on the postseason rosters. In 2010, they added outfielder Jeff Francoeur, who batted .340 the final month of the regular season.
