Padres Sign Ross Ohlendorf

The Padres signed Ross Ohlendorf to a Major League contract, the team announced. As expected, the Padres designated right-hander Matt Palmer for assignment in a corresponding move.

Ohlendorf opted out of his minor league contract with the Red Sox over the weekend and became a free agent. The 29-year-old had a 4.61 ERA with 6.3 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in 52 2/3 innings over the course of ten starts for Boston's Triple-A affiliate before obtaining his release. He started 50 games for the Pirates from 2009-10, but Pittsburgh non-tendered him following the 2011 season.

    What a lefty/righty duo.. Ohlendorf and Marquis.. You know? If both put up miserable stats at Petco?? They will be proven awful once and for all.. A Princeton man (Ohlendorf) couldn’t debate that even..

      They are both righties.

        Maybe they should try using their other arm. Couldn’t hurt.

    I think the Padres also just signed the latest Survivor cast off and some guy that fell below the yellow line from the Biggest Loser
