White Sox Roster Update: Leyson Septimo Replaces Will Ohman On 25-Man Roster

The latest news out of the Chicago White Sox camp is that left-handed RP Leyson Septimo is replacing RP Will Ohman on the roster.

Septimo, a converted outfielder from the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, signed with the White Sox as a minor league free agent in the 2011 offseason. He has since gone on to post two impressive seasons in relief, striking out almost a third of the batters he has faced, while walking only 13 percent.

The 34-year-old Ohman, on the other hand, struggled through his 26 and 2/3 innings in 2012. Though he has played a LOOGY role in the past -- and held left-handed batters to a .186/.250/.305 slash in 2012 -- the White Sox called on him to face 48 righties in the 2012 season, and his performance suffered.
