Braves get Ohman, Infante from Cubs

The Braves and Cubs have made a minor deal, with reliever Will Ohman and utilityman Omar Infante going to the Atlanta Braves for minor league relievers Jose Ascencio.

Infante had just come over from the Tigers in the Jacque Jones deal, and is a pretty decent utility guy, while Ohman is apparently to replace Ron Mahay in the lefty-out-of-the-pen role.

Ascencio got a C+ from John Sickels, is 22 years old and threw hard, and well, in AA last year.
