BOSTON (CBS) – Free agent starter Roy Oswalt, who had originally been seeking a three-year contract, is now telling teams he’s looking for a one-year deal, according to’s Jerry Crasnick.

Oswalt reportedly wants to prove that his back is healthy, and then re-enter the free agent market next year in search of a multi-year contract.

Crasnick suggests that the Red Sox, Nationals, Yankees, Marlins and Twins would be among the teams interested in signing Oswalt.

The 34-year-old made just 23 starts last season, finishing 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA and 1.34 WHIP.

Any team who signs Oswalt will not have to forfeit a draft pick. Earlier in the offseason, the Phillies declined arbitration on the pitcher.
