The Cincinnati Reds have made a minor move today that won't be making the backpage in Cincinnati, signing left-handed pitcher Will Ohman to a minor league deal, according to Reds assistant director of media relations Jamie Ramsey. Ohman will be assigned to the Reds Triple-A affiliate in Louisville.

Ohman was designated for assignment by the Chicago White Sox roughly three weeks ago after turning in a poor outing against Minnesota. Ohman allowed three runs on two hits over two innings of work that game.
The 34-year-old posted a 6.41 ERA across 26 2/3 innings of work for Chicago this season, while striking out just 4.4 batters per 9 innings and walking 1.7 in the same pace.
