After allowing five runs, four hits and a walk in last night’s 8-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, the Milwaukee Brewers have placed relief pitcher Jim Henderson on the 15-day disabled list because of right shoulder inflammation. Outfielder Caleb Gindl has been recalled from Triple A Nashville to take his place on the roster.
Henderson struggled with his velocity during spring training and lost his closer’s job to Francisco Rodriguez right out of the gate this season. Henderson (2-1) has pitched 11 1/3 innings, allowing 10 runs (9 earned) and 14 hits, including three home runs. His ERA stands at 7.15.
Gindl was hitting .284 with two home runs and six RBI’s over 25 games at Nashville.
