Found June 04, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Milwaukee Brewers closer Jim Henderson was placed on the disabled list last week with a strained right hamstring. He's since been progressing in his recovery, and manager Ron Roenicke told reporters -- including Todd Rosiak of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel -- that Henderson is slated to be activated from the DL on Sunday. "I know the discussion is with Henderson that he should come off that day unless he has a setback," Roenicke said Monday. Henderson suffered his injury during his most recent appearance which occurred on May 24 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He exited that game and was replaced by former closer Francisco Rodriguez. K-Rod has registered two additional saves since the injury, but Henderson is expected to reclaim the role of closer upon his return. After John Axford's early struggles, Henderson has been solid for the Brewers. Over 20 appearances, the 30-year-old has maintained an ERA and WHIP of 0.92 and 0.814 with an impressive strikeout-to-walk ratio of 4.60 and nine saves.

For being a player who's never played a game in Milwaukee, Brewers fans sure seem to love Ryan Joseph "Scooter" Gennett. The fan base's blind affection so generously heaped upon the childlike frame of the scant second baseman is probably on account of two main reasons. First, and most important, Gennett hit .297, stole eight bases and tallied 60 hits through 50...
