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.
