Oswalt (lat) is listed as Saturday's starter against Triple-A Reno, Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
If all goes according to plan, Oswalt will be activated from the 7-day disabled list Saturday after dealing with lat tightness. He's made six starts for Triple-A Las Vegas this season, posting a 6.18 ERA with 29 strikeouts across 27.2 innings.
Oswalt was placed on the 7-day disabled list Friday by Triple-A Las Vegas due to late tightness, Kristie Ackert of The New York Daily News reports.
The timing is bad for Oswalt, as he likely would have been recalled by the Mets for Monday's doubleheader if not for the injury. The organization's No. 7 fantasy prospect has a 6.18 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in a tough home park at Vegas, but his 29:12 K:BB in 27.2 innings is encouraging, and his 3.86 ERA and 4:0 K:BB in 4.2 innings with the big club during his first major-league appearance might be a better reflection of his upside.
Oswalt was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Oswalt was with the major-league club for four games, but he failed to make an appearance. The 24-year-old has 20 strikeouts and seven walks at Triple-A this year, and he should be one of the top options the next time the Mets are in need of a spot start.

Oswalt is up for his third stint in the majors so far this year, though he's made just one appearance, allowing two runs in 4.2 innings. He could be in line for a start if Jacob DeGrom (elbow) is unable to return from the disabled list when his turn comes up Sunday against the Phillies. P.J. Conlon, who started Monday, was sent down to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Oswalt was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.
The pitching prospect appeared just once during his cup of coffee with the Mets, allowing two runs in 4.2 innings out of the bullpen. Oswalt will head back to the minors to continue to develop as a starter. Jacob Rhame was recalled from Triple-A to replace him on the active roster.
