Orioles Sign Hennessey

According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Online, the Orioles signed pitcher Brad Hennessey to a minor league deal.  The O’s also inked infielder Donnie Murphy, which was first reported a few days ago.

Hennessey, 29 in February, posted a 7.81 ERA in 40.1 innings for the Giants this year.  He was also unimpressive in 21 Triple A starts.  Hennessey’s fastball was down over two miles per hour this year, and he went to his changeup more often.  He’ll probably provide rotation depth for the Orioles, though he did close for several months last year.
