Oswalt Heads Home After Storms


Roy Oswalt has left the Phillies to head back to Mississippi. The former Astros ace is going to check on his wife and children after tornadoes ripped through countryside near his home.

The Phillies hope to have him back for his next start but are leaving the door open to move that start back if he’s not able to rejoin the team in time.
