     Isn’t optioned the wrong term for Hendrickson?  He’s not on the 40 man roster any more, so shouldn’t that be outrighted?

    • No way Hendrickson has any options left.

      I am surprised he IS an option let alone have any left to use.

         Well he was designated for assignment.  His only other ‘option’ was unemployment.

        He has a contract in which they built options in it. The Orioles released a story on it.
