Henderson has been on the disabled list since May 2nd with shoulder inflammation appears to be nearing a return to the big club.
This season with the Brewers, Henderson struggled early on. Originally, he was slated as the team's closer but a loss in velocity caused him to lose his role this spring. Through his first 14 outings, Henderson was rocked compiling a 7.15 ERA in just 11.1 innings.
But even with the slow start, Henderson's return could provide great relief for the bullpen. Last season, Henderson was dominant, saving 28 games while keeping a 2.70 ERA. While he will not overtake Francisco Rodriguez in the closer role, his mid-90s fastball can help him to be a perfect eighth inning setup man and make the bullpen stronger.
