White Sox Bring Up Septimo; Designate Ohman
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have purchased the contract of left-hander Leyson Septimo from Triple-A Charlotte and have designated reliever Will Ohman for assignment.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Thursday before starting a four-game series against the New York Yankees that Septimo will be used against lefties but his role is somewhat undefined.

Septimo was 2-1 with a 1.48 ERA and one save for Charlotte. Batters were hitting .135 against him, the lowest average for relievers in the International league. He had 39 strikeouts in 30 1-3 innings.

Ohman, also a lefty, was 0-2 with a 6.41 ERA in 32 appearances for Chicago this season. In parts of 10 major league seasons, Ohman is 12-16 with a 4.28 ERA and three saves in 483 relief appearances for six teams.
