However, Henderson is optimistic about being ready to go come Opening Day.

I'll have to go rehab, and that's for everybody's benefit to make sure that we're ready to go and I'm back to where I used to be. It's more I want to make sure. I don't think I've really been right all year, and I want to get there so I can come back and be helpful to the team."
