Giants' Corey Oswalt: Healthy at minor-league camp

Oswalt (knee) is scheduled to pitch a simulated game at the Giants' minor-league camp Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of reports. Signed to a minor-league deal by San Francisco earlier in the winter, Oswalt looks to be ready to go for the start of the 2022 campaign after he concluded the 2021 season on a rehab assignment in the minors following a prolonged shutdown due to a right knee injury. The 29-year-old right-hander had served as organizational pitching depth for the Mets over the last four seasons, making 26 appearances (14 starts) in total for the big club. Though the Giants let Kevin Gausman walk in free agency earlier in the offseason and didn't add any new starters to the 40-man roster, Oswalt probably isn't a serious candidate to open the season with the major-league squad. Instead, he'll likely slot into the rotation at Triple-A Sacramento.

Giants' Corey Oswalt: Signs minor-league deal

Oswalt (knee) signed a minor-league deal with the Giants on Thursday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports. Oswalt threw a total of 27.1 innings as a member of the Mets in 2021, 10.1 of which came with the big-league club. He managed an impressive 10:2 K:BB, but his next challenge will be proving that he has overcome knee inflammation that ended his season in early July. While he was unable to return to the big-league mound, Oswalt was in the midst of a rehab assignment at the close of the campaign, meaning it is likely that he will be healthy for spring training.

Mets outright Jose Peraza, Jose Martinez, Corey Oswalt and Robert Stock; all choose free agency instead

Four Mets became free agents Friday as the team created roster space at the start of what might be an awfully busy offseason. Infielder Jose Peraza, infielder/outfielder Jose Martinez, righthander Corey Oswalt and righthander Robert Stock were outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse, the team announced. They all declined the assignment, electing free agency instead.

Corey Oswalt: Heads to open market

Oswalt (knee) cleared waivers and elected free agency Friday. Oswalt looked good in a tiny sample of 10.1 major-league innings this season, allowing four runs in 10.1 innings while striking out 10 and walking just two. He hit the injured list with knee inflammation in early July and wound up missing the rest of the year, though he did return for some rehab appearances near the end of the season, which could help him earn what will probably be a minor-league deal over the winter.

Mets' Corey Oswalt: Rehabbing in Florida

Oswalt (knee) made his third rehab appearance with Low-A St. Lucie on Sunday, tossing two scoreless innings while allowing no hits and issuing one walk. Oswalt looks ready to return from the 60-day injured list, but it's unclear if the Mets plan on activating him before season's end. Even with the active roster having expanded to 28 men in September, the Mets may not be eager to make a corresponding 40-man roster move to clear a spot for a low-leverage reliever like Oswalt.
