MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers today reached agreement with right-handed pitcher Tomo Ohka on a one-year contract, it was announced today by Brewers Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin. The agreement was reached prior to a salary arbitration hearing that was scheduled to be heard on Thursday. Per club policy, no financial terms of the contract were released.

Ohka, 29, was acquired by the Brewers from Washington in exchange for Junior Spivey on June 10, 2005. In 20 starts and two relief appearances for the Brewers, Ohka went 7-6 with a 4.35 ERA. Ohka made an impressive debut as a Brewer, throwing a complete game shutout on June 14, 2005 at Tampa Bay.

Overall in 2005, Ohka went 11-9 with a 4.04 ERA with a total of 29 starts and three relief appearances. Previously, Ohka has spent time with Washington (2001-2005) and Boston (1999-2001), where he was signed as a non-drafted free agent on November 19, 1998. Overall he has compiled a career 44-53 record along with a 3.95 ERA in 156 Major League games.
