Rays, Mariners Eyeing Mark Hendrickson

The Rays and Mariners are interested in lefty reliever Mark Hendrickson, tweets Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  Hendrickson's former team, the Orioles, is also keeping tabs on him.  The O's declined a $1.2MM option on him last month.

Hendrickson, a 6'9" southpaw, turned 36 in June.  This year he posted a 5.26 ERA, 6.6 K/9, 2.4 BB/9, 1.1 HR/9, and 42.9% groundball rate in 75.3 innings.  Hendrickson's FanGraphs splits show he's been plenty effective against left-handed batters over the past few years.
