Henderson, as they say, has 'been around'. He's pitched in parts of 13 seasons in the minors, posting a combined 3.92 ERA.
His premier season in the majors came in 2013 for the Brewers... 61-G, 45-GF, 28-SV, 2.70, 1.13, 60-IP, 75-K
He's a 6-4 righty (who isn't these days) that will play 2015 as a 33-year old.
Paul DePodesta was hired by the Mets on 11-8-10 and has been accredited with rebuilding the Mets minor league system... but what does that really mean?
His first draft (2011) hasn't produced, to date, one genuine producer. In fact, the only players to sit on the Queens dugout bench so far have been Cory Mazzoni (2nd round), Logan Verrett (3rd), Jack Leathersich (5th), and Danny Muno (8th). First round pick Brandon Nimmo has still not proved himself worthy of the pick.
2012, which includes the Teddy Stankiewicz (2nd round) debacle, have only produced Kevin Plawecki (1st) and Matt Reynolds (2nd). The Mets also picked Gavin Cecchini (12th pick overall) in the first round, but many have questions this pick as well.
And as much as the pick of Dominic Smith in the first round of the 2013 draft looks to be a good one, it's too early to tell.
The one home run he did pick was Michael Conforto with the first pick in the 2014 draft.
Past that, most of the exciting additions to the Mets in recent years... Zack Wheeler, Noah Syndergaard, Dilson Herrera, Travis D'Arnaud, Wuilmer Becerra... have been through trades executed by Sandy Alderson.
Let's not forget that DePo was fired in 2005 by the Los Angeles Dodgers after leading them to their worst win-loss record in 11 years.
