Could draw a save opportunity in Saturday's matchup with the Indians, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jeurys Familia has worked four of the last five games, which will render him unavailable Saturday. Also Addison Reed is questionable for the game. This leaves Henderson as the likely candidate to get the closing nod over Hansel Robles if the situation arises due is closing experience.

Henderson, after throwing 34 pitches Tuesday, was called upon again by Terry Collins on Wednesday, but struggled, possibly due to diminished velocity.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Henderson only retired one batter Tuesday, allowing a run on a hits and two walks but was hitting 95mph with his fastball. Wednesday, Henderson failed to retire a hitter, allowing a hit and two walks, but was bailed out by his bullpen mates. His fastball sat at only 89-90mph, which is troubling given his past shoulder woes. The Mets have a day off Thursday but if Henderson's fastball fails to get back to its normal level this year and/or his arm is bothering him, the team might have to shut him down for a bit.

Henderson tossed a scoreless seventh inning in the Mets' 2-0 win over the Royals on Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Henderson, making his Mets debut and pitching in his first regular season game since 2014, hit 96-97 mph on his fastball. He had solid command and control, with 11 of his 13 pitches strikes, as he attempts to rebound from shoulder issues that derailed his career. With Hansel Robles (suspension) out, Henderson was the bridge from Noah Syndergaard (six innings) to Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia; a role that Henderson and Robles will both get chances to fill.

Henderson's contract was selected by the Mets on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After posting a strong 1.80 ERA and 0.90 WHIP this spring, the right-hander has been rewarded with a spot on the Opening Day roster. Henderson won't likely get too many high-leverage innings with Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia at the back end of the bullpen, but it's a good sign going forward for Henderson after having the last two seasons derailed by shoulder issues.

Henderson was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

The Brewers decided to outright Henderson after assigning him to Triple-A coming off his stint on the 15-day DL. Henderson has posted an ERA of 3.65 in 12.1 innings pitched with Colorado Springs thus far in 2015 and will look to return to form at just over a week removed from being on the DL.

Henderson (shoulder) has been activated off the 15-day DL and optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Henderson was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to Mar. 26 due to inflammation in his throwing shoulder. He has progressed well through his rehab assignment, but still hasn't matched the usual velocity on his fastball. Henderson will join the Brewers' Triple-A affiliate for the time being.

Henderson (shoulder) appeared in his fifth rehab game, and third with Double-A Biloxi, on Wednesday night. He has given just one earned run and three hits while posting a 6:1 K:BB ratio in five innings during his rehab assignment.

Henderson has thrown the ball well during his rehab assignment, but he still has not regained his mid-90s velocity, as his fastball was sitting at 90-92 mph in Wednesday's outing, according to Biloxi Media Director Chris Harris. Henderson should be ready to pitch for the big league club soon -- if he isn't already -- but he will have to find another way to get major league hitters out if he does not have his big fastball.

Henderson (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with the Class-A Brevard County Manatees.

The big thing for Henderson will be finding the velocity he seemed to lose in spring training due to last year's shoulder injury. If he doesn't find it or suffers a setback, it's hard to see him pitching effectively in the majors anytime soon.

Henderson was placed on the 15-day DL, retroactive to March 26, with right-shoulder inflammation, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Henderson will stay in Arizona and pitch in minor league games before joining High-A Brevard County in mid-April. It sounds like he may not be ready to come off the DL until late April or early May.

Henderson hasn't regained his velocity from before his shoulder surgery and could be in danger of missing the Opening Day roster, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Most of Henderson's 2014 season was lost to the shoulder issue, and the part that wasn't was affected by the shoulder. With the Brewers having a fair amount of depth in the bullpen heading into 2015, the former closer could find himself pitching in the minors should he fail to regain his pre-surgery form.
