Source: Sox designate Ohman for assignment


The Chicago White Sox will designate left-handed relief pitcher Will Ohman for assignment on Friday, according to a major league source.

The 34-year-old has struggled of late -- particularly against left-handed hitting. Ohman is in the second year of a two-year contract. He appeared in 32 games and pitched in 26 2/3 innings with a 0-2 record and a 6.41 ERA.

Ohman has pitched for six teams, including the Chicago Cubs who drafted him in the eighth round of the June draft in 1998.

The White Sox will announce a corresponding move on Friday.
