PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A person with knowledge of the deal says Houston ace Roy Oswalt has agreed to waive his no-trade clause and accept a swap to the Philadelphia Phillies.
The person aware of the trade told The Associated Press that Oswalt must first pass a physical.
Houston is to get pitcher J.A. Happ and at least two prospects from the Phillies.
The two-time NL champion Phillies went into Thursday with a seven-game winning streak. They began the day 3½ games behind Atlanta in the NL East.
