Nationals ink reliever Ohman to Minors deal

VIERA, Fla. -- The Nationals signed 35-year-old left-hander Will Ohman to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Major League Spring Training on Monday.

Ohman pitched for the White Sox the last two seasons, going 0-2 with a 6.41 ERA in 32 big league games in 2012. Overall, he's 12-16 with a career 4.28 ERA in 483 appearances spanning 10 seasons.

Ohman has also pitched for the Cubs, Braves, Dodgers, Orioles and Marlins.

The well-traveled veteran gives the Nats, who do not have a wealth of left-handed relievers, depth in the bullpen in addition to lefties Zach Duke and Bill Bray.
