Pirates Release Ross Ohlendorf

The Pirates have released Ross Ohlendorf, tweets MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch. The 29-year-old had been a Pirate since the Yankees traded him to Pittsburgh in 2008's Xavier Nady/Jose Tabata deal. As Langosch writes, releasing Ohlendorf today will give the Pirates roster space to make a selection in tomorrow's Rule 5 draft.

Ohlendorf was coming off a dismal 2011 campaign in which he posted an 8.15 ERA in nine starts for the Pirates. He was arbitration eligible, and MLBTR's projected a salary of about $2.1MM if the Pirates retained him.
