Henderson headed to Atlantic League

Longtime Biscuits pitcher Brian Henderson has signed with the Somerset Patriots of the independent Atlantic League.

Henderson first came to Montgomery in the middle of the 2004 season and stayed with the Biscuits through the end of 2007. The left-hander rejoined the team in 2008 after struggling at Triple-A Durham.

Henderson celebrated Southern League championships in 2006 and '07 and could have a shot at another. Somerset has won four Atlantic League champion ships.

Henderson, one of the smartest players in Biscuits history, made 198 appearances for the Biscuits and was 15-8 with a 3.02 ERA. He was a chemical engineering major at the University of Houston.

Somerset has also signed former Biscuits pitchers Jim Magrane and Travis Minix. Also in the Atlantic League, outfielder Jeremy Owens will rejoin the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs and Steve Andrade is set to play for the York Revolution.

Outfielder Erold Andrus has signed with the Florence Freedom of the independent Frontier League.
