The deal with Oswalt came on the same day the Phillies and AL West rival Los Angeles Angels put their ace pitchers on the disabled list.

The Phillies put two-time Cy Young winner Roy Halladay on the disabled list and he’ll be out of the rotation for six to eight weeks because of a strained right shoulder. Angels starter Jered Weaver was put on the DL with a lower-back injury, likely forcing last season’s AL Cy Young runner-up to miss at least two starts.
