The Milwaukee Brewers have released right-hander Clay Hensley after just four appearances with Triple-A Nashville.
Hensley's release clears a roster spot on the Sounds' roster for right-hander Tyler Thornburg, as he returns to Triple-A on Tuesday.
Hensley, 33, began the season in the Reds organization with Triple-A Louisville, going 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA in 18 innings before being released on May 20.
The Brewers signed him on May 27 to fill the void left by right-hander Donovan Hand's promotion to the big leagues. Hensley went 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA in 2 23 innings over four games with Nashville.
Hensley has appeared in 271 big league games, spending all of 2012 with the San Francisco Giants. Over the course of seven seasons, Hensley is 28-34 with a 4.00 ERA in his Major League career.

MILWAUKEE -- Three days and 40 picks later, the Milwaukee Brewers finally concluded the first-year player draft last Saturday afternoon. When it was all said and done, the Brewers drafted 28 college players and 12 high school players, while taking 23 pitchers and 17 position players.
After presiding over the draft, Brewers scouting director Bruce Seid took some time to share his...
Alfredo Figaro is making it awfully hard on his manager.
With Marco Estrada soon to return from the disabled list and Chris Narveson and Hiram Burgos out on rehab assignments, it seemed only a matter of time before Figaro returned to the bullpen.
But Figaro isn't going to go quietly. The right-hander tossed seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits for his first major...
Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun is out of Monday's lineup as he continues to battle a thumb injury on his right hand.
Braun started Sunday's 9-1 victory over Philadelphia, but was pulled for pinch hitter Logan Schafer in the bottom of the third inning.
The injury is to a nerve between the thumb and index finger on Braun's right hand. While the pain and soreness...
MILWAUKEE -- It's nearly impossible to figure out how a major league bullpen is going to fare. Relievers as individuals are unpredictable enough, but as a group they can be puzzling.
Established relievers can have bad stretches, simply because it's real easy for a pitcher working just one inning to have a bad, ERA-inflating outing.
Last season, the Brewers had a bullpen...
Sometimes one bad pitch is all it takes to lose a baseball game. That was the case Tuesday night for Jim Henderson and the Milwaukee Brewers.
After fighting back from an early deficit to scratch enough runs for the lead against a tough young right-hander, Henderson left a slider over the plate to the wrong hitter in Miami's lineup.
Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton crushed...
If starting pitching is contagious, Yovani Gallardo caught the bug. But more importantly, the Milwaukee Brewers put together another all-around effort Monday night.
For the second straight day, Milwaukee's starting pitcher went eight strong innings, while the defense and offense backed them. Gallardo didn't allow a run in eight innings and picked up his 1,000th career strikeout...
Even without their All-Star slugger, the Milwaukee Brewers have seen improvement on offense lead to their longest winning streak since April.
Miami's Jacob Turner, however, has been tough to hit since his call-up last month.
The Brewers will try to continue their recent production at the plate and win their fifth straight Tuesday night when they face Turner and the Marlins...
The Milwaukee Brewers are riding a rare three-game winning streak, but it appears to be in serious jeopardy considering Ryan Braun's thumb injury and Yovani Gallardo's struggles.
Meanwhile, the Miami Marlins aim for a three-game winning streak of their own - only their third of the season - Monday night when they host Milwaukee.
Both teams - amongst baseball's worst ...
MILWAUKEE -- Instead of huddling his entire family around a tiny computer screen to watch the draft, Josh Uhen decided to connect the laptop to the family television. It was going to be much easier to wait out the long draft that way.
But as it turns out, Uhen didn't have to wait very long.
As the first-year player draft moved into the fifth round last Friday afternoon, Uhen...
Carlos Gomez added another impressive offensive performance during his breakout season.
Gomez had four hits, including two triples, drove in three runs, and scored three runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.
''He had a very big night, two triples,'' said Jonathan Lucroy, who drove in four runs.
Yovani Gallardo threw eight scoreless innings, Jonathan Lucroy had four hits and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 Monday night for their fourth consecutive victory.
Carlos Gomez had three hits and two RBIs for Milwaukee, while Lucroy also drove in a pair of runs. Rickie Weeks homered among his three hits for the Brewers, who tied a season high with 16 hits despite...
With slugger Giancarlo Stanton back in the lineup, the Miami Marlins may be poised to continue their recent success.
After having a hand in ending the Milwaukee Brewers' winning streak, Stanton tries to help the Marlins post back-to-back series wins for the first time in a year Wednesday night.
Stanton is 2 for 8 in two games since his return from missing more than a month with...
Carlos Gomez had four hits, including two triples, and Jonathan Lucroy drove in four runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.
Gomez also drove in three runs and scored three runs. Jean Segura homered for the Brewers, who have won five of six.
Alfredo Figaro (1-0) pitched seven scoreless innings to earn his first victory since Sept. 26...
Giancarlo Stanton hit his first homer since coming off the disabled list, a two-run drive with two outs in the eighth inning that lifted the Miami Marlins to a 5-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
With Juan Pierre on first, Stanton connected on the first pitch from Jim Henderson (2-2), sending a drive over the wall in left-center. It was his fourth home run this...

Allow me to go back to Friday morning for a brief moment.
Hey, it's June 7. There is a lot of baseball to be played and the Phillies are currently in the mix. As I said yesterday, a winning road trip followed by a home series victory against...
