The Washington Nationals boast one of baseball’s best starting rotations, one that includes Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Ross Detwiler, and Dan Haren. While the bullpen isn’t exactly shabby, not with Rafael Soriano, Tyler Clippard, and Drew Storen present, it is light on left-handers.
That’s where Will Ohman comes in. The veteran lefty, who has spent time with the Cubs, Braves, Dodgers, Orioles, Marlins, and White Sox, signed a Minor League deal with the Nationals last month that included an invite to Major League camp. On Sunday Ohman made his first appearance of the spring. It didn’t go as well as he would have liked. Ohman allowed two hits and two walks in one inning of work.
That was apparently all the Nationals needed to see.
Will Ohman, who pitched the sixth inning today, was cut before the game ended. Tough day at the office.

Ohman was one of four pitchers, Bill Bray, Brandon Mann, and Tanner Roark included, who were re-assigned to Washington’s Minor League camp.
