Reds Sign Will Ohman

The Reds have signed left-hander Will Ohman, according to Assistant Director of Media Relations Jamie Ramsey (via Twitter).  The 34-year-old will report to Triple-A Louisville.

Ohman was released by the White Sox earlier this month after being designated for assignment.  In 26 2/3 innings for Chicago, Ohman posted a 6.41 ERA with 4.4 K/9 and 1.7 BB/9.  The veteran likely came to the Reds at a reasonable rate as he will collect on the $2.5MM owed to him on the backend of his two-year deal from the ChiSox.

    First JC Romero and now Ohman? Never underestimate the power of being left handed.

    They don’t want to be outdone by their instate rivals, so they sign a old, struggling lefty for themselves!

    He’s good when used strictly against left handed batters.

    He has always been a good loogy. And can still get them out.

    Vs. Lefties – .186/.250/.305/.555OPS – This season

    He’s pitching better against them this year than his career average…

    (.210/.294/.348/643OPS) – Career vs LHB

    The White Sox have a young bullpen and so Ohman was used against right handed bats.

    If the Reds use him strictly against lefties, he is a good get at league minimum.

      Only way he gets called up is if 3 relievers get hurt because there are easily 3 guys at AAA that’ll get the call before he will
