Orioles Make Offer To Will Ohman

The Orioles offered a minor league deal to lefty reliever Will Ohman, reports Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.  Ohman will throw for the O's and other clubs this week.  Ohman, 32, had a lost 2009 season after signing with the Dodgers on March 30th.  Shoulder problems led to September surgery.  When he's right, Ohman can shut down lefties.  Connolly adds that the Orioles are still in talks with southpaw Mark Hendrickson.

Connolly also notes that Miguel Tejada's one-year, $6MM deal to return to Baltimore is official.  Connolly speculates that reliever Dennis Sarfate could be designated for assignment to make room for Tejada.  You may recall that Sarfate came to the Orioles from the Astros in the December '07 Tejada trade.

I think this is a great move (If we get him), we need left handed help in the pen.

And I hope we dont DFA Sarfante I still think he has a bit of upside, Fat Albers needs to go.

Sarfate has been less than decent in his time with the O’s….having another lefty in the pen can’t hurt…hopefully he’s decent.
