Henderson was released by the Cubs on Thursday, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Henderson was looking to earn a spot in the Cubs' bullpen as a non-roster invitee, however his 9.64 ERA in 4.2 innings this spring wasn't enough to get Chicago to bite. He's struggled since a 2014 shoulder injury, but he'll look to catch on with another team's bullpen.

Henderson agreed to a minor league contract with the Cubs on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-handed reliever has struggled since injuring his shoulder back in 2014, most recently amassing a 4.11 ERA and 1.8 HR/9 out of the Mets bullpen last season. Henderson's career 11.6 K/9 does create some intrigue, however, so he could put up a good fight for a spot in the Cubs bullpen if he shores up his control.

Henderson has decided to test free agency rather than accept an assigment to the minors.

EDGE Analysis

A former closer with the Brewers, Henderson hasn't been the same pitcher since his shoulder injury in 2014. He finished 205 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with the Mets, but his velocity dipped and his 4.89 FIP suggests he may regress further next season. It's unlikely he will find himself in high-leverage situations again, but it's possible he'll find work in another major league bullpen.

Henderson was outrighted off the 40-man roster Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

EDGE Analysis

He posted a 4.37 ERA in 44 relief appearances with the Mets. While his 25.8 percent strikeout rate was solid, he walked too many hitters and gave up seven home runs in 35 innings. He should provide organizational bullpen depth going forward, but his days of getting high leverage looks appear to be over.

Henderson (biceps) was activated from the DL on Saturday, Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Erik Goeddel was optioned to clear a spot on the roster for the returning Henderson, who ended up spending two months on the DL due to biceps tendinitis. He gave up four runs in five innings after resuming his rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas earlier this month but was sharp in his final couple appearances, and manager Terry Collins suggested Henderson could slot back into the seventh-inning role right away.

EDGE Analysis

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.
