Phillies Trade for Roy Oswalt

Ruben Amaro, Jr. and Ed Wade completed a deal to send Roy Oswalt to the Phillies in exchange for J.A. Happ and prospects, outfielder Anthony Gose and shortstop Jonathan Villar. Houston will pick up $11 million of the approximately $23 million that Oswalt is guaranteed through 2011. Oswalt did not demand that the Phils agree to his $16 million option for 2012; rather his buyout will increase from $1 million to $2 million.

Oswalt will make his Phillies debut Friday night in the series opener against the Nationals. Here are his career stats.
