Brewers Injury Update: Jim Henderson makes first rehab appearance

By on 7/04/2014 10:15:00 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers begin a weekend series against the Cincinnati Reds today coming off a 7-4 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday. Even with the loss, the Brewers hold a comfortable five-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League West. Although the Brewers had a day off on Thursday, reliever Jim Henderson was in action, making his first rehab appearance since being put on the disabled list two months ago.

Our own Keri Carbaugh reported on June 24 that Henderson, who has been on the disabled list since May 2 with inflammation in his right shoulder, was going to the Brewers spring training facility in Arizona.  At the time, manager Ron Roenick had no timetable for Henderson's return. 

Henderson improved enough over the past week to make his first rehab appearance.  As reported at, Henderson started for the AZL Brewers and threw 1 1/3 innings, allowing only one hit and no runs.  

Henderson, a 31-year old from Canada, is in his third Major League season.  Last year, he was 5-5 with a 2.70 ERA.  In  61 games, he allowed only 44 hits and struck out 75 in 60 innings.  He's struck out 17 in 11 1/3 innings this season, but has also allowed three home runs, nine earned runs and 14 hits.
