Wil Ohman called up.

The Cubs have placed Chad Fox on the 15-day DL today and recalled lefty Wil Ohman. Going into spring training I was pretty high on Wil Ohman and it looked like he pressed too much trying to impress the Cubs and did pretty poorly. Since going to the minors Wil has stymied hitters to a .138 batting average while only walking 2 and getting 12 k's in 8.2 innings. I think he will be more valuable in the pen right now than Jon Leicester or Mike Remlinger are at the current moment. The major problem this presents is now we have 4 lefties out of pen Rusch, Bartosh, Remlinger, Ohman which unless you are Tony Larussa, 4 lefties in pen is too many.
