Jim Henderson (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Brevard County on Friday.

Apr 17 - 10:54 AM

Brewers placed RHP Jim Henderson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26, with right shoulder inflammation.

The veteran right-hander is still in the process of rehabbing and recovering from a torn right labrum. It's unclear when he will be an option to join the Brewers bullpen, but he could be looking at a lengthy stint on the DL.
Apr 4 - 1:12 PM

Jim Henderson has been sent to the minor league side of camp in order to continue to rehab his surgically-repaired right shoulder.

There's no official move with Henderson, but he's displayed diminished velocity in camp and needs to rehab rather than continue to pitch. The reliever had his right labrum and rotator cuff repaired last August and is now poised to open the season on the disabled list.
Mar 20 - 11:47 AM

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Jim Henderson has yet to regain his velocity post-shoulder surgery.

Haudricourt thinks it could affect the reliever's chances at making the Opening Day roster. Henderson had major surgery last August to repair his right labrum and rotator cuff, so it's not a surprise that he's not yet throwing in the mid-to-high 90s as he used to. The former closer could be stashed on the disabled list to begin the season.
Mar 15 - 1:44 PM

Jim Henderson (shoulder) threw live batting practice on Sunday for the first time since undergoing surgery in August to repair his right labrum and rotator cuff.

The veteran right-hander said he felt good after the session, though his command wasn't where he wanted it to be. The next step could be for Henderson to get into game action at some point next week, and barring any setbacks he appears to be on track for the start of the regular season.

Jim Henderson (shoulder) threw at nearly 100 percent effort on Monday.

Henderson had surgery last August to repair his right labrum and rotator cuff, but it sounds like he's basically all systems go at the beginning of spring training. The former closer will be looking for a bounce-back season after posted a 7.15 ERA over 14 appearances in an injury-shortened 2014 campaign.
Feb 23 - 6:38 PM

Jim Henderson (shoulder) began throwing off a mound last week.

He's slated to have his first true bullpen sessions this week after surgery last August to repair his labrum and rotator cuff. The Brewers referred to the operation as a "cleanup," but it's always worrisome when the labrum and rotator cuff are involved. However, Henderson is optimistic about being ready to go come Opening Day.
Jan 25 - 12:42 PM

Brewers activated RHP Jim Henderson from the 60-day disabled list.

Shoulder problems limited Henderson to just 11 1/3 innings this year and he eventually required season-ending "clean-up" of his labrum and rotator cuff in August. The estimated recovery time was four months, so he should have a chance to be ready for spring training if all goes well with his rehab.

Brewers transferred RHP Jim Henderson from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Mon, Jul 21, 2014 11:00:00 AM
