With the addition of Ohman the Orioles Opening Day bullpen
includes Jason Berken, Matt Albers, Cla Meredith, Mark Hendrickson, Jim Johnson
and closer Mike Gonzalez.
The 32-year-old Ohman went 2-0
with a 1.08 ERA in 10 Spring Training appearances and will be used as a lefty
specialist. In 324 major league appearances with the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta
Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers, Ohman is 11-9 with a 4.25 ERA (231.0IP, 109ER)
and has held left-handed batters to a .204 average (85-417).
So your official 25 man roster looks like this:
Infielders (8): Miguel Tejada, Cesar Izturis, Brian Roberts, Garrett Atkins, Ty Wigginton, Julio Lugo, Matt Wieters, Craig Tatum
Outfielders (5): Nolan Reimold, Felix Pie, Nick Markakis, Adam Jones, Luke Scott
Pitchers (12): Kevin Millwood, Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Matusz, Brad Bergesen, David Hernandez, Jason Berken, Matt Albers, Cla Meredith, Mark Hendrickson, Jim Johnson, Will Ohman, Mike Gonzalez.
