Despite adversity-filled spring, 'K-Rod' closing, succeeding

MILWAUKEE -- There's certainly something to be said about familiarity, and Ron Roenicke has just that with Francisco Rodriguez. It was still a surprise to see Rodriguez trot out for the save opportunity on Opening Day instead of Jim Henderson, thought to be the Milwaukee Brewers' closer at the time.

Brewers' Henderson embracing role as club's closer

PHOENIX -- Jim Henderson came to spring training this year in a position he's never been in before.

Few would dispute it's a position the 31 year-old Canadian deserves. Replacing John Axford...

One bad pitch, one bad result for Jim Henderson, Brewers

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.
