Hendriks hit by ball during Twins' win over Orioles

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Nick Markakis got a hit in his return to Baltimore’s lineup while Twins pitcher Liam Hendriks exited early after being struck in the hand by a batted ball Tuesday in the Twins’ 9-4 win over Baltimore.

Hendriks, still in the mix for the back end of Minnesota’s rotation, gave up four hits and fanned two in 2Xc scoreless innings until a ball hit by Brian Roberts struck him in the pitching hand.

Hendriks had swelling in his right hand but said he expected to throw his normal bullpen session Thursday.
