Ohman's overall numbers in 2012 are pretty bad -- he has a 6.41 ERA in 26-2/3 innings -- but the left-handed reliever got good results against left-handed hitters; lefties hit just .186/.250/.305 against him. Right-handed hitters hit him to the tune of .286/.375/.595, though.
Ohman was in his second season with the White Sox, and prior to that he spent time with the Cubs, Dodgers, Braves, Orioles and Marlins.
