Dodgers workout Will Ohman

The Dodgers worked out left-handed relief pitcher Will Ohman on a back field at Camelback Ranch this morning.

Ohman went 4-1 with a 3.68 ERA for the Braves last year, appearing in 83 games and pitching 58 2/3 innings with 53 strikeouts and 22 walks. Before that, he spent five seasons with the Cubs.

Ohman would be vying for the situational-lefty job out of the pen that Erick Threets and Brian Mazone are competing for.

The team is still in talks with his representatives.

UPDATE: Here’s what Joe Torre had to say about it.

“We’re interested. He’s been throwing,” Joe Torre said. “Ned’s talking to his representative to figure out if it’s going to work. It’s a tough time in spring training to come in and say you’re ready. He showed me he’s been throwing, it didn’t take him long to get loose and there’s a certain element of sharpness too that you’d like to have.

“Just where we are in spring training … but what we saw today was the quality of the stuff even though you can see he hasn’t been pitching in games, as far as his command.

    If the Dodgers do indeed sign Ohman, the 2nd lefty job is his and Erick Threets/Brian Mazone are AAA bound.
