Chicago White Sox left-hander Will Ohman will be designated for assignment today, reports Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune.

The announcement was made soon after Ohman pitched in Wednesday’s 12-5 White Sox win against the Minnesota Twins. The 34-year-old allowed three runs on two hits and a walk over his two innings of work.

Yesterday’s unsuccessful outing brought Ohman’s ERA and WHIP up to 6.41 and 1.050 over his 26 2/3 innings of work this season. The lefty has posted a career-low 4.4 SO/9 to go with 1.7 BB/9.

Over Ohman’s 10-year career, in which he’s pitched for six different teams, he owns an ERA and WHIP of 4.28 and 1.363.

The White Sox have yet to announce a corresponding roster move. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, some of the candidates to replace Ohman include left-handers Donnie Veal, Leyson Septimo and Charlie Leesman. All three pitchers are currently with the club’s Triple-A affiliate.
