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.
Hope you’re still working out, Jamie Moyer, YOU’RE NEXT!!
met him durings spring training once, very nice man,
Good to know he’s a nice guy, but this Ross is not much of a loss
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.
LOL. Cheers.. shows ya how much attention paid to him (other than Ivy leaguer) the entire time he was in the Sox system…
Lol. No worries.
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
