Astros ace Roy Oswalt says he would waive the full no-trade clause in his contract if Houston wants to try to shop him this season. Oswalt says he would like to stay with the Astros and help them win. Houston went into Friday night's game at San Francisco with a four-game winning streak, but still had the worst record in the National League.

Oswalt is 2-4 with a 2.63 ERA and has struggled to get run support this season. He pitches Saturday against two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum.

The 32-year-old Oswalt originally made his comments to Sirius XM Radio on Thursday night.
