    Pitcher Mark Hendrickson, now a grandpa, fight for roster spot with Orioles

    40-year-old pitcher Mark Hendrickson is still fighting to make a roster in the league. Hendrickson, now a grandfather, earned a spring training invite during a minicamp last month with the Orioles. "I come in here with realistic expectations. Obviously, I know what they did last year and the guys should be commended on how far they got and how much success they had. They're going to get ready for the season. For me, if I start in Triple-A, it's one step closer than I was last season. I'm OK with that is that's the case," Hendrickson said to CSNBaltimore.com. Hendrickson last pitched in 2014 with York of the independent Atlantic League, posting a 1.54 ERA in 52 2/3 innings over 55 appearances. "Obviously, that's not going to change my preparation. It's to continue to go out there and develop my pitches and get ready. But I've always had the goal of April 1 [being] my target date every year just to be ready to go, so that's what I'm focusing on down here."
