Jim Henderson RP MIL 1 Month

Henderson underwent a cleanup procedure on his right shoulder Tuesday and is expected to need four months to recover.

Details are starting to emerge regarding Henderson's surgery and the news is generally positive. The right-hander underwent an arthroscopic procedure to clean up the labrum and rotator cuff in his shoulder, but the four-month recovery window should put him on track to be ready for spring training. Henderson was limited to just 14 appearances this season as a result of the shoulder issues.

Henderson underwent shoulder surgery Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The shoulder simply wasn't getting stronger through rehabilitation, so Henderson and the Brewers opted for surgery in the hope that he can return to full strength at some point in 2015. Henderson's availability for the start of next season is far from certain, however, as he now faces a several-months-long recovery process.

Henderson may be headed for shoulder surgery, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

On Friday, manager Ron Roenicke ruled Henderson out for the rest of the season, and it sounds like the 31-year-old's shoulder may need to be surgically repaired. Henderson was expected to serve as the Brewers' closer this season but he ended up making just 14 appearances before the shoulder issue forced him onto the DL. If surgery is indeed necessary, Henderson could be in jeopardy of missing the start of the 2015 season.

Henderson had a setback last week when he experienced renewed right shoulder discomfort. However, he's hoping it will just be a small bump in the road.

Then we can get back to strengthening it and exercising again."
