Milwaukee Brewers: Jim Henderson, Tom Gorzelanny, Aramis Ramirez Notes


Right-handed reliever Jim Henderson of the Milwaukee Brewers has been given clearance to resume throwing, but he has yet to do so, according to a report.

MLB.com reported that Henderson had cleared the mandatory shut-down period after he received a cortisone shot in his right shoulder last week.

Henderson, on the disabled list since May 2 with inflammation in his shoulder, had begun a minor-league rehabilitation assignment, but had to be shut down after experiencing pain in his shoulder.

Tom Gorzelanny, meanwhile, continues on his rehab assignment, but is reportedly having trouble finding his velocity.

The veteran left-hander had surgery in December on a torn labrum and rotator cuff and had originally hoped to be ready shortly after Opening Day.

Gorzelanny has pitched a total of 10 innings in six rehab appearances, one start, at High-A Brevard County and Triple-A Nashville. He has a 1.50 ERA in six innings at Brevard County and a 2.25 ERA in four innings for Nashville.

Gorzelanny has until June 12 on minor-league rehab, at which point a decision must be made to activate him, send him to the minors outright or leave him on the disabled list.

Third baseman Aramis Ramirez played Sunday for Low-A Wisconsin at Grand Chute and was 0-for-2 with a popout and a strikeout. Ramirez played four innings in the field at third base and made one putout, but did not return to the game after a rain delay.

Ramirez is scheduled to play another game for the Timber Rattlers on Monday, weather permitting, before the club decides when to activate him. He’s been out since May 10 with a strained hamstring.
