Found May 25, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates last night, but they lost closer Jim Henderson to a hamstring injury in the process. Henderson suffered the injury while throwing a pitch to Pirates catcher Russell Wilson, and manager Ron Roenicke told reporters – including Todd Rosiak of The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel – that he believes the closer could be out for an extended period. "We'll re-evaluate it tomorrow and see where we are," he said. "I don't think it's going to be just a day." Henderson landed awkwardly after the pitch to Martin. Afterward, he spoke with the team’s medical staff and Roenicke before throwing a warmup pitch. After that loan throw, he exited the game. For his part, Henderson isn’t so sure that he’s going to require an extended stretch on the disabled list. Where he and Roenicke could agree was that nothing will be known until he tests the hamstring today. "I know it looked awkward, but it happened on the pitch, not the play," said Henderson. "I've never had hamstring problems before, so I have no idea (of the severity). It could be something as simple as a cramp. We'll see how it feels in the morning." Henderson had replaced John Axford as the Brewers’ closer earlier this season. The 30-year-old was fantastic since taking the job, as he posted an ERA of 0.92 with a 0.814 WHIP over 15 appearances spanning 19 2/3 innings. Roenicke replaced him by former closer Francisco Rodriguez, who could slide into the role if Henderson is required to miss a significant amount of time.

Brewers Saturday: Henderson to be evaluated by team doctor

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers closer Jim Henderson's hamstring injury will be evaluated Saturday afternoon by team physician Dr. William Raasch, but early signs indicate a trip to the disabled list could be likely. "It's going to be awhile," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. " ... Anytime you pull a hamstring, it's not a day-to-day thing. He's limping...

Brewers Sunday: RHP Donovan Hand called up

MILWAUKEE The Milwaukee Brewers have selected right-hander Donovan Hand from Triple-A Nashville to fill the void left by closer Jim Henderson's placement on the disabled list. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Hand, the Brewers shifted right-hander Mark Rogers to the 60-day disabled list. Hand, 27, was Milwaukee's final bullpen cut in spring training, but went to...

Brewers Friday: Gorzelanny reinstated from DL

MILWAUKEE The Milwaukee Brewers have reinstated left-hander Tom Gorzelanny from the 15-day disabled list prior to Friday's game against Pittsburgh. To free up a roster spot, the Brewers placed right-hander Hiram Burgos on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. Signed as a free agent this past offseason, Gorzelanny has been one of Milwaukee's more consistent...

Gallardo, Roenicke baffled by short start

MILWAUKEE Yovani Gallardo says he felt good, but the results speak otherwise yet again. For the right-hander and the Milwaukee Brewers, it was more of the same Sunday afternoon. Their starting pitcher couldn't go deep into the game, and the offense struggled to consistently put run-scoring threats together. Gallardo lasted just four innings, allowed four runs on five hits...

Brewers' Estrada ends struggles with strong start

MILWAUKEE Marco Estrada wanted to take the ball and go back out there for the eighth inning. With the lack of depth the Brewers' starting rotation has been giving the bullpen, it's hard to blame him. For the first time since May 13, a Milwaukee starting pitcher went seven innings, as Estrada set down the first 14 batters he faced en route to a 2-1 victory over the Pirates...

Brewers have the bats but are still struggling to score runs

MILWAUKEE -- A quick gander at some of the individual numbers in Milwaukee's batting order leaves an impression that the Brewers have one of the more potent offenses in the National League. The overall offensive results are simply puzzling. How an offense with the ability to be one of the best in baseball - featuring five guys hitting over .313 - can struggle to score runs is...

Brewers place Hiram Burgos on DL; activate Tom Gorzelanny

The Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation took another hit yesterday, as the team placed right-hander Hiram Burgos on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder impingement, according to Todd Rosiak of The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Burgos’ shoulder has been bothering him of late, and it’s showed in his recent performances. He and manager Ron Roenicke are hoping that...

Brewers sideline reporter hit in hand by foul ball

Ever find those “sideline” reports annoying in sports? Well you are not alone. Fox Sports Wisconsin’s Milwaukee Brewers’ reporter Sophia Minnaert had the microphone knocked out of her hand last night night with a errant throw.

Brewers 2, Pirates 1

Marco Estrada gave up one run over seven innings and Alex Gonzalez had a two-run double, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. Estrada (4-2) retired the first 14 Pittsburgh batters he faced before a two-out bloop single to left field by Neil Walker in the fifth inning gave the Pirates their first base runner. Estrada struck...

Milwaukee hopes to solve the riddle of Rodriguez

The Milwaukee Brewers have won all nine of Yovani Gallardo's home starts against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Defeating Wandy Rodriguez, however, could prove difficult. The Brewers, owners of the worst record in baseball against left-handed starters at 4-16, face another one in Rodriguez in the finale of this three-game set at Miller Park on Sunday. Gallardo (3-4, 4.50 ERA) is...

Pirates’ Miller Park woes continue

The Pirates were 29 and 18 coming into tonight’s game in Milwaukee.  The Brewers were 18 and 27.  The Pirates are obviously the superior team, yet Miller Park continues to give them problems.  Tonight, they didn’t have a hit, or even a baserunner, until the 5th inning, and came away with a 2-1 loss. AJ…

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 50

Pedro Alvarez was responsible for more runs than the Brewers yesterday.  Too bad this guy sits for Brandon Inge and his .560 OPS on a semi-regular basis. I mean, who needs a power bat in the lineup against righties at the home run haven Miller Park? There is a very real chance that if Pedro…
