07:27 AM ET 11.19 | Considering how long he's been in the game, it may be easy to forget that Roy Oswalt is only 36. Oswalt definitely intends to pitch in the Majors in 2014, MLBTR has learned. Unlike in years past, Oswalt intends to sign during the offseason and fully participate in spring training. A source tells MLBTR that while Oswalt prefers starting, he's open to a late inning relief role. In fact, he's already been approached by multiple teams about that possibility. Though Oswalt has struggled the last few seasons, it appears he is seeking a Major League deal. Oswalt signed a minor league contract with the Rockies in May of this year, working at extended spring training and then making six starts in the minors before returning to the Majors in June. A hamstring strain cost him about two months.

He's only 36, huh?
Brandon Webb is only 34, how about bringing him back, too?

Those 10 mill a year demands are through Roy. Maybe some team will invite you to spring training, but if you are going to pitch in 14 it will probably be in the Midwest League or some Independent League looking to fill roster spots.

In an over 30 men's softball league? That's about the only league he should be in.
