Former Phillie Roy Oswalt will return to a major-league mound Friday night in Texas against Colorado.
Oswalt's last major- league appearance was a Game 4 loss to St. Louis in the NL division series last fall with the Phillies.
"I think I'm ready as far as arm strength," said Oswalt, who was 1-1 with a 5.87 ERA in four minor- league starts.
In his major-league career with Houston (2001-10) and Philadelphia (2010-11), Oswalt has a 159-93 record with a 3.21 ERA in 339 career games.
He went 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA in 23 starts for the Phillies last season, but was hampered by a back problem that limited him to 139 innings, his fewest since 2003.
But on Wednesday he said he felt as good as he did in 2010, when he went 7-1 with the Phillies after a midseason trade.
