Pittsburgh (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates traded veteran righty starter Roy Oswalt to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for their #1 and #3 round draft picks. Pittsburgh drafted Oswalt in the first round (third pick overall) of the 2001 draft.
In five seasons with the Buccos, Oswalt compiled a 55-38 record with a 3.76 ERA. He has two career shutouts. In the 2004 postseason, Oswalt went 1-1 with a 3.42 ERA in four starts as Atlanta eventually eliminated the Pirates in the Semi-Finals. Oswalt also made three starts in the 2002 postseason going 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA.
