According to a report, Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Jim Henderson is progressing well enough on his rehabilitation assignment that he’s moved up to Double-A Huntsville.
MLB.com reported that Henderson is headed to Huntsville after two appearances with the Brewers of the Arizona League.
In two appearances, Henderson allowed just one hit and struck out three in 2.2 scoreless innings.
Henderson has been out since May 2 with inflammation in his right shoulder. The deposed Milwaukee closer had a 7.15 ERA and 1.588 WHIP in 14 appearances and 11.1 innings, with 17 strikeouts, before being shut down after he was roughed up for five runs and recorded just two outs in a loss at Cincinnati on May 1.
The prognosis isn’t as rosy for right-hander Tyler Thornburg, who last pitched on June 6 before being sidelined with soreness in his right elbow.
Thornburg, according to a report, is still only playing catch and is still a few days away from his first bullpen session since being sidelined.
Thornburg had a 4.25 ERA and 1.517 WHIP in 27 appearances and 29.2 innings, with 28 strikeouts, before he was shut down after a 40-pitch inning in a loss at Pittsburgh on June 6 during which he walked four and gave up five runs.
