After weighing a similar offer from the Rockies left-hander Mark Hendrickson has decided to re-sign with the Orioles on a minor-league contract, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.
Hendrickson spent the past two seasons in Baltimore, making 12 starts and 93 relief appearances while posting a 4.74 ERA and 116/53 K/BB ratio in 180 innings. He’ll compete for a middle relief gig and the 37-year-old will receive $900,000 if he makes the team out of spring training.
Hendrickson has a 5.28 ERA in 166 career starts, but the 6-foot-9 southpaw who spent a few seasons in the NBA has generally done a solid job in the bullpen with a 3.97 ERA in 154 relief outings and is effective as a left-handed specialist.
