MLB betting had the Baltimore Orioles signing a couple of pitchers on Tuesday as they inked left-handers Mark Hendrickson Will Ohman to contracts.
The Orioles could be improved this season in baseball betting and provide some opportunities for bettors.
MLB betting had Hendricks agreeing to a $1.4 million dollar contract. Last season Hendrickson was 6-5 with a 4.37 ERA in 53 games with Baltimore as MLB betting stats had it. He was very good out of the bullpen as he was 4-0 with a 3.44 ERA. The contract for Hendrickson is $1.2 million this year as baseball betting statistics indicated with a 200,000 buyout. There is also a club option for 2011 for $1.2 million. There is also performance bonuses included in the contract. Hendrickson is 56-68 with a 5.00 ERA in 268 career games. Those baseball betting stats prove that if you have a left arm and can throw the ball you can pitch in the Major Leagues.
The other pitcher signed by Baltimore was Will Ohman. He was 1-0 with a save and a 5.84 ERA in 21 games with the Dodgers last MLB betting season. If he makes the team, Ohman would get a $1.35 million, one-year contract plus performance bonuses. MLB betting indicates that Ohman is really a left-handed specialist as in his career he has held left-handed batters to a .204 average. "I think it’s always good to have experience in your bullpen," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said. "This gives us another left-handed situational guy to look at. I wanted to have another lefty in the bullpen besides [Mark] Hendrickson. Now we have some options, and we’ll go to spring training and figure it out. But I like Ohman’s track record. He’s done it. It’s a plus for us if it works out."
Baltimore is definitely going to be set as MLB betting indicates as they have a lot of lefthanders in the bullpen. They already have closer Mike Gonzalez and now they have added Hendrickson and Ohman. The Orioles are not expected to make any other moves heading into this MLB betting year. "I don’t expect anything else," Andy MacPhail, president of baseball operations said.
Ohman is the baseball betting wildcard in the signing. He could be a nice piece of the puzzle for Baltimore. “The reports that we’ve gotten are all positive," Trembley said, "They saw him throw and came back saying it was a go."
