Jim Henderson to disabled list, Caleb Gindl recalled

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Gindl hit three of his five home runs last year against the Reds.

Last night, Mark Reynolds started in right field for the first time in his major league career. He had played four innings in the outfield before, three of which came in 2007. But with Ryan Braun injured and Elian Herrera demoted back to the minors, there was nobody left to play in the outfield.

Now, there is. Caleb Gindl has been called up to the majors and, assuming Braun will still miss a couple days, will start in right field Friday night I would guess. A spot on the roster opened up as the Brewers have placed Jim Henderson on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

It is possible that Gindl's major league stay will be extraordinarily short-lived. Logan Schafer is eligible to return from the disabled list tomorrow. He has been on a minor league rehab assignment, so it seems the Brewers are prepared to activate him at the earliest possible moment.

By the way, if Gindl does start Friday night, look out for some long balls. Gindl had three hits against the Reds last year, all of which were home runs. Overall, he appeared in 57 major league games for the Brewers last year, hitting .242/.340/.439. In 25 games for Nashville this year, the 25-year-old lefty has a .284/.352/.421 line.

Henderson has been placed on the DL less than 24 hours after allowing five earned runs on four hits and a walk against Cincinnati Thursday. He has had a couple bad games this season, but overall has been an effective reliever for the Brewers despite his 7.15 ERA. However, his velocity has varied. Hopefully an injury explains that a bit and he can come back and be 2013-esque Jim Henderson.
