Chicago White Sox To Designate Will Ohman For Assignment

The Chicago White Sox will designate left-handed reliever Will Ohman for assignment on Thursday, as Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Ohman pitched the final two innings of Chicago's 12-5 victory over Minnesota on Wednesday, but he was seen saying good-bye to teammates following the game.

Like many of Ohman's outings in 2012, he struggled against Minnesota on Wednesday, allowing three runs over two innings to push his season ERA up to 6.41. His peripheral statistics aren't much stronger, as he's struggled badly with missing bats and allowing home runs.

The 34-year-old pitched much better for Chicago last season, posting a 4.22 ERA with 54 strikeouts and 17 walks over 53.1 innings of work. In 24.2 innings this year, he's struck out 12, walked four and allowed five homers.
