Marlins Designate Clay Hensley For Assignment

The Marlins have designated right-hander Clay Hensley for assignment, reports Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com (via Twitter).  Hensley was considered to be a non-tender candidate by MLBTR's Tim Dierkes, given how the righty was going through arbitration for a second time and looked to earn a raise from his $1.4MM salary. 

Hensley posted a 5.19 ERA in 37 games (nine of them starts) for Miami last year and also had two stints on the disabled list.  As a full-time reliever in 2010, Hensley enjoyed a brilliant season with the Marlins and even got some work closing games.  If healthy, Hensley could be a valuable right-handed asset to a team's bullpen, so it's possible another club might put in a claim.
