Jim Henderson Has Setback After Rehab Outing


Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jim Henderson endured a setback after pitching in his first Minor League rehab game. Henderson has been on the disabled list since May 2 with shoulder inflammation.

After throwing two pain-free bullpen sessions, the Brewers sent Henderson out to Huntsville to pitch for the team’s Double-A affiliate on Friday night. He managed to pitch an inning scoreless but reported pain in his right shoulder soon after.

Henderson called the setback “frustrating.”

“Just frustrating,” Henderson said via Joe DiGiovanni of MLB.com. “I’ve still got my head up and hopefully I’ll be back for this season at some point.”

According to manager Ron Roenicke, the original plan was to have Henderson make at least a few appearances before rejoining the team.

“We were hoping for two or three outings and he’d be back with us,” manager Ron Roenicke said. “That’s not the case.”
