Orioles sign Hendrickson and Piniero to minor-league deals

The Baltimore Orioles agreed to terms with pitchers Mark Hendrickson and Joel Pineiro on minor-league deals Monday.

Hendrickson's deal includes an invitation to spring training, while Piniero will be assigned to minor league camp.

Hendrickson, 38, last pitched in the majors in 2011, appearing in eight games with the Orioles. The 6-foot-9 lefty played for Baltimore from 2009-11, pitching in 113 games and went 8-11 with a 4.80 ERA.

Hendrickson posts a 58-74 career record with a 5.03 ERA with the Blue Jays (2002-03), Rays (2004-06), Dodgers (2006-07), Marlins (2008) and Orioles.

Piniero played in five minor-league games for the Orioles last year before labrum surgery in July ended his season.

The 34-year-old right-hander last appeared in the major leagues in 2011 with the Angels, posting a 7-7 record with a 5.13 ERA in 27 games.

Over a 12-year career with the Mariners (2000-06), Red Sox (2007), Cardinals (2007-09), and Angels (2010-11), Piniero owns a 104-93 record with a 4.41 ERA and 1058 strikeouts.
