Pitcher Clay Hensley has retired, James Larken Smith of KFFE reports. Hensley, 34, spent seven seasons in the big leagues, pitching for the Padres, Marlins, and most recently the Giants in 2012. Over 517 career innings, Hensley posted an even 4.00 ERA with 317 strikeouts.
Last year, Hensley spent time in Triple-A with the Louisville Bats (Reds) and Nashville Sounds (Brewers), and also pitched with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League. He had been trying to get back to the big leagues with the Nationals in spring training. Though Hensley didn’t allow a run, he served up five hits and four walks while striking out three in 4 1/3 innings. The Nationals released him in March 20.
