Henderson (biceps) will start his rehab assignment Friday at Double-A Binghamton, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Henderson was placed on the 15-day DL on June 21 with right biceps tendinitis after missing a few games with a shoulder impingement. The 33-year-old has not pitched since June 18 and has struggled during the past two months, as his seasonal totals are up to 25.1 innings pitched, with a 4.26 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. Henderson will be eligible to return for the series opener against the Marlins on Monday, but could come back a few days later if the Mets want him to throw in a few rehab games.

Henderson was placed on the DL Tuesday with right biceps tendinitis.

EDGE Analysis

Henderson was hoping to only miss a few days due to a shoulder impingement he suffered on Saturday but further evaluation has revealed he'll need to spend some time on the DL. He'll likely rest his arm for several days and then throw a series of bullpen sessions, batting practice outings, and simulated games before starting a rehab assignment. If all goes according to plan, the veteran reliever should return to the Mets' bullpen as soon as he's eligible on July 6.

Henderson was removed from Saturday's relief appearance after just one out, although not before he gave up a run. A DL stint seems to be averted for now, but he'll likely need further medical attention before being allowed back on the mound.

Henderson picked up his seventh hold of the season with two-thirds of an inning of scoreless relief Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Henderson was used in the eighth inning with Addison Reed (rest) unavailable. He lowered his ERA to 1.59 in the outing with his fastball sitting in the 95 mph range. Henderson earned a role on the team with a strong spring and has carried that performance over to the first five weeks of the season.

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

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.

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.
