The 31-year-old free agent signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves and was invited to spring training but was released on March 12.
Kendrick allowed 14 hits and 10 runs, nine earned, in only 3⅔ innings in his failed attempt to land one of the last two spots in the Braves' rotation. He also walked three batters.
Kendrick has a lifetime record of 81-81 and an ERA of 4.63. He was 7-13 with a 6.32 ERA for the Colorado Rockies in 2015.
