According to latest reports filtering out from the 4PM Trade Deadline, the Florida Marlins have acquired left-handed reliever Will Ohman from the Baltimore Orioles for right-handed reliever Rick Vandenhurk. 

Will Ohman arrives as a much needed arm to very shaky bullpen which is at the top of most lists when it comes to blown saves. Ohman appeared in 51 games for the last-place Orioles, with 29 strikeouts in 30 innings and an ERA of 3.30. 

Ohman figures to be used against left-handed batters and in late inning situations with the bullpen imploding in recent games against the Braves and Giants.

Vandenhurk was up and down between the major leagues and minor leagues in his tenure with the Marlins. In four seasons, Vandenhurk was 8-9 in 35 games with a 5.96 ERA. He has appeared in one game this season, allowing four runs (one earned) in an inning and a third.
