Phillies Pitcher Elects Free Agency

The San Francisco Giants signed him to a minor-league deal last January, after the pitcher opted for free agency when the New York Mets outrighted him off their 40-man roster. 

The Philadelphia Phillies then acquired pitcher Corey Oswalt in a trade with the Giants back in May.

Now, Oswalt has elected free agency.

The twenty-nine-year-old didn't pitch in the majors during the 2022 season, instead, he posted an ugly 6.57 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 40 strikeouts over 50.2 innings at the Triple-A level, split between three different organizations. 

Over his four-year career in the majors, all spent with the Mets, Oswalt holds a 5.89 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 71 strikeouts over 94.2 innings of work.

He'll look to latch on with another organization this offseason, but is almost guaranteed to get no more than a minor-league deal.
