Orioles Designate Davis, Hendrickson For Assignment

The Orioles announced that they designated infielder Blake Davis and left-hander Mark Hendrickson for assignment to create 40-man roster space for right-hander Jeremy Accardo and left-hander Clay Rapada. Baltimore's 40-man roster remains full.

Davis, 27, appeared in 25 games for the Orioles this year, posting a .254/.323/.390 line in 65 plate appearances. He played short, second and third in the Major Leagues and also appeared in the outfield at Triple-A.  Davis posted a .280/.323/.384 line in 252 plate appearances for Baltimore's top affiliate this year.

Hendrickson pitched just 11 innings for the Orioles after signing a minor league deal with Baltimore in January. He posted a 2.87 ERA with 4.4 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9 in 59 2/3 innings at Triple-A.

This post has been up for almost 24 hours but I am still going to say it: first!

Not quite sure on Hendrickson.  I can’t imagine he could do much worse of a job than Gregg as closer, although I know it’s a stretch.  Problem is the O’s don’t really have a closer since they dealt Koji away.  Gregg is a farce and hopefully will be remembered as the last of Andy’s closer flops.  Ironically, the one decent closer in recent years was Koji and they foolishly signed him as a starter after he was an quality closer in Japan.
