Dodgers Give Ohman a Try

The Dodgers Sunday morning gave a tryout to free-agent reliever Will Ohman. Manager Joe Torre and virtually the entire front office watched as the left-hander, victim of the free-agent market collapse, pitched to Dodgers Minor League hitters. – Ken Gurnick

Schmidt Starts Sunday

The club made no announcement why, but Jason Schmidt is listed as the starting pitcher on the lineup posted in the Dodgers clubhouse. As of yesterday afternoon, Schmidt was scheduled to pitch in a Minor League game and Eric Stults was starting the Major League game against the Padres.

Schmidt, Estes Pitch

Pitching against a lineup of High Single-A Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, Jason Schmidt pitched three innings, allowing two runs on six hits with three strikeouts, a walk and wild pitch. Schmidt hit a high of 88 mph but afterward said his arm felt better than it had since his two shoulder operations.

Shawn Estes, on a crash course to become a situational left-hander, relieved Schmidt and allowed two unearned runs on one hit in one inning. – Ken Gurnick
